Nikkei to release educational financial thing for DS

Tuesday, 4th November 2008 10:19 GMT By Patrick Garratt


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?

No date as yet.

    I’ve heard that they’re already working on localising this for the UK market. Working title: “We’re All Fucked”.

    In all honesty, though, if they did bring it over here, I’d be quite interested. I can’t say I’m too well versed in the intricacies of our economy and anything that made it a little easier to understand would be helpful.

    Though this won’t see the light of day outside Japan, I’m sure.
