Dual Pen Sports is the first 3DS title that encourages players to use two stylus pens at once.
The title features a series of sports-based mini-games, including football, baseball, archery, boxing, basketball, skiing and paragliding, as well as a daily sports challenge mode and reaction-based touch exercises.
The bottom screen of the 3DS is used to display the different moves gamers can select, while the top screen shows the action. For example, during a penalty shoot-out, players use one stylus to control the player’s movements, while the other is used to move the legs and kick the ball.
There’s even a range of multiplayer modes that allow two players to go head-to-head.
Namco Bandai says the title ‘provides an instant edge’ in the handheld and casual gaming markets, and with its 3D visuals and dual stylus gameplay, it’s easy to see why.
With the likes of Wii Sports and Mario & Sonic still popular, Dual Pen Sports is in good shape to stimulate strong sales of its own.
