Okamiden Demo now Available
For those unsure of how good Okamiden will be when it becomes available for DS, you now have a chance to try before you buy. Power up your Wii and head over to the Nintendo Channel and you can download the demo to this much anticipated sequel. The demo will only be available for a limited time so be sure to get a move on if you are considering picking the game up.
Okamiden comes out March 15, so it along with Pokémon Black and White will be sending DS off with a bang before 3DS’s release on March 27.
