Kochalka not too cool for Miis

Elemental Monster: new card battler from Hudson

Card-battling games seem like a natural for the DS-- the second screen is especially well-suited for managing cards while the game is in play.

Spectrobes webisodes to back up DS release

We know you're in pain. There are so few Nintendo games dedicated to collecting and training monsters that you're all in severe withdrawals. After all, it's been at least ... oh ... six seconds or so since another such title was announced! Okay, so maybe we're being a tad sarcastic, but these days, ...
