Nintendo Planning Weekly Downloads For DSi

Next week's launch of the DSi is set to also be the launch of a steady flow of DSiWare games.


Buried beneath the news that the Wii is getting a Bonsai-trimming game for its downloadable WiiWare service this morning was the announcement that Nintendo is going to be supporting downloads for the upcoming DSi aggressively.

From a Nintendo press release today:

Like the Wii Shop Channel, the Nintendo DSi Shop will offer a growing library of downloadable games, with new titles added every week. Accordingly, we’ll be using this space to tell you not only about new games for Wii but also for Nintendo DSi. Watch for the first edition of Nintendo Download on April 6.

Weekly downloads for a gaming handheld? That's a standard fans of the DS or the PSP could get behind.
