Opera reveals more details about the Nintendo DS browser

July 5, 2006

Opera yesterday added a new section to its website detailing the features of the new and unreleased Opera browser for the Nintendo DS, which is due out in Japan on July 24th.

A section on the Nintendo page also includes tips and tricks, authored by the lead developer of the DS Browser himself.

I had a chance to play around with the Opera browser on the new Nintendo DS at the launch of Opera 9 last month in Seattle. (See photos here)

For a hands on review of the Nintendo DS browser, see here and here.

The Opera browser for Nintendo DS will be sold as an optional DS card. Users simply insert the card into the Wi-Fi enabled Nintendo DS, connect to a network, and begin browsing on two screens. As of now it will only be available to Nintendo DS users in Japan.

The browser is based on the same core as the Opera desktop browser.

    Isn’t it a little late.

    I mean it’s been ages since DS is out. So it has reached some amount of saturation. Would Opera really benefit here ?

    i wish that they would release it not only in japan and i dunno if it would influence them to use it or give opera in a pc a shot but its great for opera to innovate like what nintendo is doing. i hope opera is the default browser in psp

    How is it late, Sohil? The DS Lite is selling like mad (especially in Japan, where it outsells the PSP by something like six to ten times).

    Are you saying that all new DS games that are released these days (like New Super Mario Bros.) are “a little late”?

    That’s not what I meant.

    Think about it for a second. DS has out for what an year now ?

    Would introducing Web Browsing at this stage be of any use ?

    The potential buyers all probably have DS, so it’s the number of buyers will get low and so will the demand (Basic Economics man)
