SN Systems, a videogame tools developer, and Japanese hardware and software producers Hudson, have announced a joint partnership to produce official hardware development kits and software tools for the new Nintendo DS handheld console.
The new development kit will be supported by ProDG software tools, specifically designed by console tools specialist SN Systems. Previous users of ProDG will instantly recognise the look and feel of the tools, ensuring teams will be able to quickly commence development.
Due to the popularity of existing products, SN Systems and Hudson are confident of making an immediate impact on a global scale. The development kit is expected to be available to all authorised Nintendo DS developers in all territories during late Q1 2005.
Registered Nintendo DS developers can see a demonstration of the tools at the SN Systems booth (322) next week at the Game Developers Conference (GDC 2005), San
