Point Blank DS

The hits just keep on coming with the DS; Leading video games developer and publisher NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. announced today that its classic arcade series Point BlankDS, will make its debut on the Nintendo DS in Summer 2006. With stages from all three games in the series being included in the new game, fans of the series will have their hand-eye coordination tested, by using the DS stylus as their weapon of choice to shoot down everything from clay pigeons to aliens in the mini games of Point Blank DS. Another welcome into our continuing growing DS library, Point Blank DS will have players tapping their way to victory as they take on four different difficulty levels in over 40 different stages including Namco’s popular coin-op arcade series digitized for the first time.

The portable return of the series will also have five modes including:

1). Arcade: Play through four different levels of difficulty in a variety of mini shooting games.
2). VS: Challenge your friends using the wireless feature to find out who’s the quickest draw (requires only one game card)
3). Brain Massage: Play through various stages while the game analyzes your abilities and gives you feedback.
4). Freeplay: Select any stage at any time to challenge your best score.
5). Games Museum: New stages adapted from Namco’s classic coin-op arcade series.

I have never played the first games but was always intrigued by them. I am looking forward to this one as I missed the first games. What do you guys think?
