Motion sensing DS?

Tuesday 8 August 2006
Whispers are being heard through the internet grapevine that Nintendo is planning to release a motion sensing add-on for its super successful DS handheld.

The rumours suggest that the device will debut alongside the down-sized version of Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam - the extreme sports racer that is also scheduled to appear on Nintendo's Wii.

There is no official word from Nintendo or the game's publisher, Activision, although if such a peripheral was in the planning it wouldn't come as a complete shock - Nintendo previously produced a special motion-sensing GBA cartridge for WarioWare: Twisted.

Word is that this new add on, which would allegedly connect to DS via the GBA game slot, will be unveiled at this month's Games Convention in Leipzig. We'll be there, so keep connected with GamesRadar.
