NYT Crosswords coming to DS
Majesco releasing game based around newspaper's popular puzzles; 1,000 crosswords, multiple modes included.
Sudoku may be sweeping the globe, but for puzzle purists, nothing beats a good old-fashioned crossword puzzle. Majesco, having already seen the market flooded with DS Sudoku games, is offering up The New York Times Crosswords for Nintendo's handheld. The game is being developed by Budcat Creations and will be released this spring. More than 1,000 crossword puzzles will be included, and gamers can enter their answers with either a touch-screen keyboard or with the console's stylus and handwriting recognition technology. Though crosswords are usually a solitary diversion, two players can jump into cooperative or competitive modes over the DS's wireless capabilities.
