    Behind you! I know you looked!
    I thought I'd post some release dates, seeing as June looks like such a good month for DS games (in the US mainly).

    US:
    June 3:
    LEGO Indiana Jones,
    Summon Night: Twin Age - Screenies Here
    June 17:
    Etrian Odyssey 2: Heroes of Lagaard, - Screenies Here
    Gauntlet, - Screenies Here
    Mega Man Star Force 2: Zerker X Ninja/Saurian (2 versions) - Screenies Here
    June 22:
    Guitar Hero: On Tour - Screenies Here
    June 24:
    Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift - Screenies Here
    June 30/July 1:
    Trauma Center: Under the Knife 2 - Screenies Here
    June TBA:
    Black Sigil

    UK
    May 9:
    Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney - Screenies Here
    June 6:
    Etrian Odyssey (1), - Screenies & Review Here
    Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution - Screenies Here
    June 27:
    Harvest Fishing/River King: Mystic Valley (from the makers of Harvest Moon) - Screenies Here
    June 28:
    Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword - Screenies Here
    June TBA:
    Black Sigil

    And I just thought this was hilarious:

    Japan:
    May 29:
    English of the Dead
    An educational spin-off of the House of the Dead franchise, this game has you killing off zombies by translating Japanese words into English. As zombies approach, panels with Japanese text appear over them. It's up to you to write the English translations by using the stylus. Get the translation correct, and the zombie will die off, shouting out the English phrase that you just entered.

    EDIT:
    There are some interesting titles in the Jap release dates for the next year, that Nintendo haven't announced over here. So I thought I'd list them seeing as it's quite interesting:

    - Luminous Arc 2 - Screenies Here
    - Dragon Quest V - Screenies Here
    - Daigasso Band Brothers DX
    - Dragon Quest IX: Protectors of the Sky (The two cartridges is a fake [​IMG] ) - Screenies Here
    - Kirby Ultra Super Deluxe (remake of the 1996 SNES game Kirby Super Star) - Screenies Here
    - Ragnarok DS (popular MMO on the PC for those who don't know what Ragnarok is).
    - Sim City DS 2 - Screenies Here
    - Sigma Harmonics (a new Puzzle/RPG game from Square-Enix) - Screenies Here
    - World Destruction (A new RPG from SEGA, including staff that worked on FF7, Crono Trigger and Grandia). - Screenies Here
    - Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days - Screenies & Info Here

    EDIT 2:
    Another RPG is coming up this year called Black Sigil. It's scheduled for sometime in Q2 (so we can expect to see it in the next couple of months, possibly June).
    Here is the website:
    http://www.studioarchcraft.com/

    It also says after this project, they will be making another game. (Woohoo).

    No US release mention for Civ? not that it will effectively matter.

    But it danged well better be apearing here in Canada.

    I plan to buy, but if I get snubbed, I'll still get it, I just won't be helping them much.

    Is that 2 cartridges for DQ9 a joke? I'm pretty sure it's never been said about the cartridges. And how would we flashcard users handle the thing?

    And ooh, I forgot Kingdom Hearts, thanks for mentioning it. As for Perfect Prosecutor, most people know about that already, so I didn't bother putting it in. The other two aren't quite popular enough to mention (actually, what is Ryuusei no Rockman 3?).

    This was confirmed a fake a LONG time ago. I don't know why people still believe this to be plausible. You can't "swap cartridges" like you can swap CDs. And even if it were to save your game somewhere and load it up on the second cartridge, WHERE would it save the data? On your DS? Nope.

    Go ahead and try taking out a cartridge while the DS is running and see what happens [​IMG] In a CD game, as long as nothing is being loaded or streamed from the CD, the game runs fine without the CD [​IMG]

    Two carts for DQIX? Maybe they'll work like Zelda Oracle games or Golden Sun ones, transferring data and info with passwords... Can't imagine other way to transfer progress from one cart to another because DS doesn't hold any game data. Instead of downloading one big file, leechers will download two huge files to their flashcarts. [​IMG]

    If it was real, it would probably work just like Golden Sun games worked. As for upcoming US releases, only FFTA2 interests me.

    If you take out the cartridge when a commercial game is running the program freezes, however if you do that to a homebrew (which of course isn't streaming data atm) then you can happily keep playing/using the app. This means that the freezing is probably just something built in the official devkits and is called when the cartridge is taken out. Also why couldn't your DS hold the data for a little moment? It's got 4MB of ram, the game would unload, at least partially, freeing up the required amount of memory for the save data (the maximal save size on the DS is 512kB IIRC) and when the new card is inserted it would copy the save data and continue the game, why not. But it would definitely be silly, cartridge swapping on a handheld, hah, and isn't DQ a kind of free exploring game anyway? There would be tons of duplicate data on the carts :/
