Sega collaborates with Japanese newspaper on new Nintendo DS title


I’m suffering from a huge amount of Japanese-envy at the moment, with my best friend arriving home last night from Tokyo after four months away, an extra suitcase stuffed to the brim with Hello Kitty, Studio Ghibli and other assorted goodies. Someone get me over there, fast!

My latest reason for envying everything Japan has to offer comes courtesy of WiiWii, who have reported that a new DS title will be available over there, full of major Japanese events from the last 135 years. The Mainichi newspaper has collaborated with Sega to bring the history-hungry citizens of Japan over 1,000 historically significant events all covered in the newspaper previously, and also comes with a quiz game to test your newfound knowledge. It’d be great if a similarly British title was released in conjunction with the Guardian, to help brush up on our rich history whilst sitting on the tube to work.
