Nintendo downloads: Inchworm Animation, Airport Mania

It's turning into a very Nintendo-centric day. The company released its fiscal results this morning, and managed to sneak in a confirmation of their next console to boot. But beyond the number-crunching and Project Cafe rumors, today also brings a new batch of downloadable games.

For DSiWare, we have the fairly impressive-sounding Inchworm Animation for $5 (500 points). It's an animation application that lets you record video, time-lapse photos, and stop-motion animation. You can make 9,999-by-9,999 pixels, if you really want a detailed image, and create animated layers with their own frame loops. Once you're done, you can export your animation to an SD card as Flash or BMP files. Mario Paint, eat your heart out. Read more »

A report in Japan's Nikkei financial newspaper (reposted via NeoGaf) reveals that Nintendo plans to release a new iteration of the DSi with a whopping 4" in screen real-estate. That would make the new model's screen three-quarters of an inch larger than the current model. The story puts the release date for the updated DSi as later this year, with the price to remain at the same 18900 Yen as the one currently on store shelves. Whether it will see release outside of Japan remains under consideration.

The story attributes Nintendo's impetus to increase the screen size on substantial feedback from users. It also notes that the larger screen is meant to cater to older users who have expressed difficulty when gaming on the smaller screens. Read more »
