Opposites attract

We don’t fully understand the idea behind the magnet peripheral that comes with the newly announced Slide Adventure: Mag Kid on DS, so bear with me.

This Japanese TV advert would suggest that instead of controlling the main character – a caterpillar – you have to rub the DS over a solid surface to make it move around maze-like environments. My best guess is that certain objects either propel or attract the critter, and so some form of feedback is emitted from the device.

It’s being developed and published by Nintendo, so there’s a good chance it’ll be released outside of Japan.

Current interest level: 68.7 percent.
