According to this Trading Markets piece, Nikkei and Nintendo are to bring out a piece of DS software designed to make learning about the Japanese financial system “fun”.

“The software will be designed so that users can learn the basics of the economy — how it works and keywords for understanding it — by tapping on the devices’ touch-screen panels and answering a series of quizzes,” says the story.

“By making the learning process fun, Nintendo hopes the software will attract young people who are interested in the economy.”

Question number one: The world economy gets the arse torn out of it in front of your eyes, global capitalism is shown up to be a tragic charade and you lose approximately 57 times your lifetime-possible earnings on stupid credit bets in less than eight seconds. How do you top yourself?
