Slide sensor bundled with new title Nintendo Japan has revealed a new slide sensor for the DS, which effectively turns the handheld into an optical mouse. Retailing in Japan for JPY 5,800 (GBP 24 / EUR 35), it comes bundled with a new game called Slide Adventure: Mag Kid - based around a small robot that has to reassemble itself from salvaged enemies. The emergence of a new product follows news earlier this week of Nintendo filing a patent for motion-sensing technology on a handheld. Nintendo Europe was unavailable to comment on plans to release the product outside of Japan.
