Considering how scarce good DS titles are nowadays, this isn't too bad. You can read the Wii version of this thread right here Some rules and stuff. Warning: Spoilers inside! - No flaming. If I list a game you don't like, too bad. If I don't, too bad. - This is mainly North American releases, sorry. I'll, on occasion, do a European or Japanese release if it's big enough and not already out in America. - If a game is already released in English and is being released again for another region, I won't bother adding it. Like say if Super Mario Galaxy 2 was out in America in April (it won't) and it came out in May in Europe, I won't list it for May. I'll also do the same if a game was released in English (aka Europe or America) and is being released in Japan. - I get my dates from GameFaqs, Wikipedia, and IGN, so if a date is wrong don't blame me. You can, of course, point it out and ask me to fix it if you have the right date. Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies Developed by: Level-5 Published by: Nintendo/Square Enix Release date: July 11th (America), July 23rd (Europe) Genre: RPG My Hype Level: I really don't know GBAtemp Hype Level: DRAGON QUEST ORGASM Really, I don't know. People are like "GUILD DRAGON QUEST ARE SOME OF THE BEST RPG GAMES EVER MADE!" I try them and they're so goddamn boring. Maybe it's just something past my age. But the new game here doesn't look too bad. Revamped battle system, presentation, and everything. Even better, it's a new title, and not a remake. I'll give it a try for sure. Fire Emblem: Shin Monshou no Nazo Hikari to Kage no Eiyuu Developed by: Probably Intelligent Systems Published by: Nintendo Release date: July 15th (Japan) Genre: SRPG My Hype Level: It's not in English GBAtemp Hype Level: OMG FIRE EMBLEM So it's another Fire Emblem game. Really now, I'm not all that interested. Outside of the language barrier, I'm terribly sick of SRPG games. There's just too many on the DS. TrackMania Turbo Developed by: Firebrand Games/Nadeo Published by: DreamCatcher Interactive Release date: July 22nd (America) Genre: Racing My Hype Level: Never liked TrackMania GBAtemp Hype Level: Huh? No boxart, sorry. I've never been a real fan of TrackMania, I've always been a fan of those over-the-top, balls to the wall crash course racers or those cutesy kart racers, not something that's about obsessive time trial crunching. But it's become a rather popular game so who knows. Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar Developed by: Marvelous Entertainment Published by: Natsume Release date: July 27th (America) Genre: Simulation My Hype Level: Another Harvest Moon, I never would've guessed... GBAtemp Hype Level: It's Harvest Moon so of course I'll try it! Seriously, stop with the Harvest Moon. They just keep crapping out on Harvest Moon game after another. It's getting produced at the speed of shovelware. And it's just the same farming game we've all known, outside of some of the puzzle games and Rune Factory. Other titles - Digimon: Last Evolution: 7/1 (Japan) - Inazuma Eleven 3: Sekai e no Chousen!! Bomber/Spark: 7/1 (Japan) - Dragon Ball Origins 2: 7/2 (Europe) - Dragon Quest Monsters: Battle Road Victory - Senyou Color Code Scanner: 7/15 (Japan) - Seikaiju no Meikyuu (Atlus Best Collection): 7/15 (Japan) - Puzzle Quest 2: 7/15 (Europe) - Katekyoo Hitman Reborn! DS Flame Rumble XX - Kessen! Real 6 Chouka: 7/22 (Japan) - TV Anime: Fairy Tail Gekitou! Madoushi Kessen: 7/22 (Japan) - Spectral Force Genesis: 7/30 (Europe) Overall Summary Meh, it's an alright month for a system that's been having a drought of good titles. Dragon Quest IX headlines, with a new Fire Emblem and TrackMania right behind. There's also a new Harvest Moon, but I'm starting to think "new" isn't the correct term for the series now. I'll be honest and say next month has nothing at all. No big titles. A bunch of shitty ones at most. Sorry for the downer. Have a nice July!
