Konami have announced two previously unannounced titles for the upcoming Nintendo 3DS – the new 3D video game console that doesn’t require special glasses.

First up from the publisher comes Sudoku: The Puzzle Game Collection which, as the title suggests is a Soduku game with puzzles based on puzzle-guru¬†Nikoli’s creations. The game comes with¬†Hashi (Bridges), Shikaku (Boxes) and Akari (Museum) modes which are renowned for their difficulty.

The game, developed by Hudson Soft will be able to use the Nintendo 3DS “Play Coin” feature to purchase hints. The game¬†features¬†3D visuals and over 600 different “tests” ranging from beginner stages through to insanely difficult concoctions. Konami will launch Sudoku: The Puzzle Game Collection in May of this year.

Next up is Sports Island 3D which brings the incredibly popular Sports Island series onto the Nintendo 3DS in June.

Sports Island 3D will have ten sports on offer; Soccer, Tennis, Basketball, Ice Hockey, Snowball Fighting, Sumo Wrestling, Bowling, Snowmobile Racing, Sport Blowgun and Trampoline.

Event can be played by between one-four entrants in either single or multi-player modes. Sports Island 3D adds to the competitive spirit with the addition of special power-ups that can give each player an advantage during each event.

These ‘Super Play’ actions give the player a chance to hit their opponent with a seemingly unstoppable move and take the form of over-sized racquets or a heavier ball in Tennis, ‘Cannon Dunk’ and huge jump moves in Basketball and an unstoppable ‘Rainbow’ shot in Soccer. Each event has one specific Super Play moves, and they can be brought in at strategic times to gain a hard-earned victory.

Sports Island 3D also allows players to customise their teams and as the game progresses, so new venues are unlocked. The four-player modes are also facilitated either via wireless play or download, with a number of competitive modes offering the chance to compete against each other or work together in teams.
