On Friday March 11th 2005 the Nintendo DS will be released in Europe. Sixteen games will be available from day one, and figuring out which you should pick up with the system is pretty tricky. A number of games are worth considering, and we hope this launch guide will help choosing games that little bit easier. The DS Launch Zone will update throughout the week, with news, screens and reviews for a number of launch games, so be sure to check back regularily.

For a limited period only, if you order your DS from Simply Games it will come with a free playable demo of 'Metroid Prime Hunters: First Hunt'!
