    I wanted to make this note- This rom will NOT work on any flashcard or emulator. It has a sensor that you get when you buy the game to hook into the DS to play. I'm not even sure what kind of game it is. It's some sort of stargazing sim from the looks of it-



    Another video-

    im guessing that the cartridge has an inbuilt compass so wouldn't the game be inaccurate for other countries anyway?

    Maybe or Maybe not, there could be a Country selector or something.

    Hard to say; from the look of the cart; it seems the cart itself has a camera inside as the focus point.

    I know some software trickery it might be possible to pull off making it work in DSi mode if you've got one. Only one downside to it; being the crap lens they added to the dsi.

    That's a fantastic and truly original idea for a DS game. I really hope it gets a European release.

    From the look of the videos, the cart includes a compass and something to detect tilt. I'm not sure what use a camera would be for that application.

    Huh... this actually looks quite interesting. Too bad it's in Japanese, if not I would be tempted to get one.

    Damn, I want that! But it looks like it's really difficult to track down. ;_;

    I should probably finish building one of my projects that has an inbuilt accelerometer/gyro/compass (vr game gun [​IMG] ) and hook that up to Stellarium or something.

    Looks original enough to me, a friend of me likes stargazing so he might be interested in it.
