On This Day in Nintendo History: Chōsōjū Mecha MG; Freshly-Picked Tingle’s Rosy Rupeeland; Nintendo DSi Instrument Tuner; Nintendo DSi Metronome; Metal Torrent and more

An interesting history of Nintendo hardware can be found by combing through the company’s birthdays back through its various consoles. Today, however, we’ll be looking at the Nintendo DSi hardware, which was released in 2008 to much fanfare, but sadly not much sales. The DSi was the launch for the Nintendo DSiWare service, which was designed to allow players to purchase downloadable content (hence the “i” in Nintendo DSiWare). The birth of the DSi didn’t begin without a hitch, however, as it was to be called the DSi Active. It was then that Nintendo saw the error in their ways, and the DSi was launched as it is today.

August 10, 1991: The first and second installments of Bandai’s Chōsōjū Mecha MG series of robot designs (a.k.a. Chōsōjū) were released on the Super Famicom (and later the Super NES). The series would end up producing a total of 13 robot designs, and over the years they would become some of the most recognizable characters from the Super Famicom/SNES era of gaming.

  • Freshly-Picked Tingle’s Rosy Rupeeland was a Nintendo DS game published in Japan in 2006. Take a journey inside Tingle’s strange and beautiful world as he becomes the star of his own story in this Vanpool adventure game! The eccentric character best known for creating maps and collecting every last Rupee he can get his hands on will be recognizable to fans of the Legend of Zelda series. And now you can control Tingle as he embarks on a bizarre mission to amass as much money as possible.

  • In Japan, Nintendo DSi Instrument Tuner was launched for DSiWare in 2009. Gauge the sound of a musical instrument in this Nintendo-developed musical app. You may choose between three different kinds of displays and pitch references. By playing the osund printed on the balloons, you may also play a balloon-popping minigame.

  • In Japan, Nintendo DSi Metronome was launched on DSiWare in 2009. Set the rhythm and speed in this Nintendo-developed musical app, and it will tick as you play a musical instrument. You may select from three different displays or play a minigame in which you must time your beats to help Mario leap over Donkey Kong’s barrels.

  • In Japan, Puzzle Iroiro: Gekkan Crossword House Vol. 4 for DSiWare was published in 2009. Use the clues to input words into the boxes in this puzzle game created by Tose. You type the characters straight into the panels, and you may add notes in the boxes to refer to later if you’re not sure. There are a variety of problems in this book, including conventional crossword puzzles, illustrated crossword puzzles, Sudoku, and more.

  • Metal Torrent was published in Japan for the DSiWare system in 2009. Your goal in this Arika shooter is simple: earn the greatest score possible through eight stages of intense vertical-scrolling action. Choose between two strong crafts: Red Orion and Blue Nova, which are suitable for both beginner and advanced gamers. Both spacecraft are equipped with conventional blasters that can fire indefinitely, as well as exotic weaponry that are unique to each vessel. Special weapons, on the other hand, deplete your energy gauge, so consider before you fire! Collect cubes dropped by defeated opponents to replenish your energy and boost your score!
