The creator of the Dreamcast's opinionated fishman does DS

TODO alt text

Yoot Saito, the creator of nutty Dreamcast title Seaman is about to begin work on a Nintendo DS title.

"Nintendo DS is a wonderful handheld," Saito told Nintendo's European website. "I'm glad it comes with a built-in microphone. That's why we have things planned for it. We're working on a title that will use the network and microphone, but unfortunately I can't really discuss it yet."

Saito's currently completing development of Odama, a curious and long-standing GameCube project that mixes, of all things, pinball with medieval Japanese combat. Much like Seaman, a barmy virtual pet game that involved chatting to a man-faced fish using Dreamcast's microphone, Odama makes use of the player's voice via an included mic.
