Namco confirmed today that it will be offering launch support for the Nintendo DS. The company lineup will start off with the release of Mr. Driller: Drill Spirits and Ridge Racer DS. Unfortunately, neither Nintendo or Namco is willing to reveal the official release date, hinting that gamers can look forward to them "this winter".

em>Mr. Driller Drill Spirits will take full advantage of the Nintendo DS technology as players utilize the stylus and innovative dual-screen interface to avoid falling blocks and scramble for air capsules, in order to rescue their fellow Drillers, or collect power capsules to destroy the menacing Destroyer Drill! Further, players will be able to battle head-to-head against other players using the system’s wireless capabilities.

From the arcade racing series gamers know and love, Ridge Racer DS delivers a whole new experience to racing fans by offering true analog steering through the Nintendo DS touch screen and supporting up to six players to get in on the fun through multiplayer race. Ridge Racer DS offers all the fast-paced action gamers have come to expect from the Ridge Racer name --- now in the palm of their hands on the Nintendo DS.

Mr. DRILLER Drill Spirits and Ridge Racer DS will be available this winter exclusively on the Nintendo DS. For more information, visit:
