Preorders are welcome to ship in late August 2008.
Professor Kawashima and Nintendo collaborate once again this summer with an NDS abacus tutor which teaches an old school means of crunching numbers. Before calculators and computers, the Chinese, Greeks, and Romans used the abacus to solve math problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Computing fractions and the square root of numbers is also possible with an abacus so it's a useful tool to get familiar with. Preorders are welcome to ship on June 19, 2008.
In Konami's upcoming NDS game based on the Hana Yori Dango, franchise, players take on the role of a girl who enters Eitoku Academy and follows in Tsukushi's footsteps. She'll be able to befriend characters from the series and perhaps find romance with a member of the F4 crew. There'll be virtual dating, touch-pen hand-holding, mini-games, and the bloom of digital love. Preorders are welcome to ship on July 10, 2008.
