With this addition, gamers now only have to carry one device to enjoy two of their favorite pastimes – gaming and music. This simple, easy to use accessory allows Nintendo fans to enjoy around 150 of their selected songs with a 512MB SD memory card, whilst on the move. The MP3 files are stored via a PC onto an SD card. The card reader and the SD memory card are to be purchased separately. The SD card is then inserted into the Nintendo MP3 Player cartridge. Each song’s title information will be clearly listed on the Nintendo DS screen so songs can be easily selected.
The Nintendo MP3 Player doesn’t just work with the Nintendo DS though, it is also fully compatible with the Game Boy Advance SP and Game Boy Micro as the cartridge will slot into the Game Boy Advance port on all the Nintendo handheld consoles.
The Nintendo MP3 Player launches across Europe on 8th December 2006 at the estimated retail price of around £20.
