A sniff of firmware upgrades...

I've seen this posted in several places now, so I'm passing the rumor on...

A Japanese Newspaper reports that Nintendo is building a new piece of software for the DS to be released in 2005 - a dictionary / translator app between English, Japanese and Chinese. Also mini-games and other "extras." Hmm?!

This would be unique among Nintendo softwares and may mean an service pack for the firmware as this application would seem to naturally sit beside Pictochat as a communication tool. Or else it means that Nintendo is persuing the branding of the DS as a mobile communicator/computer much more aggressively than simply tossing a license toSummitSoft to make a PDA for the DS by doing this project in house.

I can't wait to try both softwares.
