The New York Times crosswords on Nintendo DS

I grew bored with Brain Age after about 2 months of repetitive and voluntary maths (it's still a great game when I am time-wasting). I have no idea how those geezers in Japan can continue with it daily, but I digress. At any rate, Majesco's recent announcement that they would be releasing a game based on The New York Times crosswords on the DS platform, makes me glee with joy. I can't wait. Here's hoping that one of the quality papers in the UK releases a British style crossword game.

Copied & pasted from their press release:
The New York Times Crosswords features more than 1,000 real crossword puzzles and the unique ability to write in answers with the stylus or use a Touch Screen keyboard to enter letters. Various modes of play include Puzzle Me Quick for a fast word fix; Puzzle Week for extended play with progressive difficulty; or Challenge mode with adjustable time and difficulty settings. In addition, the game includes both cooperative and competitive 2-player play so puzzle fanatics can work together or face off in wireless challenges.
Even if it is American based, it beats playing Sudoku.
