A lawsuit has been filed by Nintendo, Capcom, and 53 other Nintendo DS software developers against four companies who are importing and selling R4 devices for the Nintendo DS. The R4 devices, as you may or may not know, are billed as movies and homebrew players for the Nintendo handheld, but everyone knows they are really the main tool for playing pirated Nintendo DS ROMS (games). The lawsuit has been filed with the Tokyo District Court, and the companies are seeking an injunction to prevent distribution of the R4 devices.In February, the Japanese court ruled that it was illegal to import and sell the R4, but there has been no sign of market slowdown for the item. This has led to Nintendo and others taking the next step. Better grab one now if you need it.

Remember we told you yesterday that there was a new rumor that nVidia had won the contract to power the new DS with its Targa processor? Well, Nintendo has come out to say that any new handheld talk is pure "rumor and speculation." Of course, this is the standard line when Ninty does not want to reveal info, so we can likely say it is true. Rumor mill though.

It seems that the next-gen Nintendo DS may be powered by the nVidia Tegra. Jen-Hsun Huang, the co-founder of nVidia said recently that he expects to see the Tegra capture 50% of the company's revenue. According to today's article, not only has nVidia managed to sway MS for the Zune HD, but now they have even swayed Nintendo to use the Tegra for the new Nintendo DS. The DS is basically a license to print money for Nintendo, as it is probably the most successful handheld of all time by now, unless the Gameboy 1 still holds that honor. Rumor mill, of course, but it sounds legit.

The CEO of Level 5, Akihiro Hino has told the Official Nintendo Magazine that there are no plans to bring the wildly popular puzzle man, Professor Layton, to the home console, the Wii. Despite the games being one of the most popular NDS franchises right now, the third game in the series will be released soon, completing the trilogy. Professor Layton and the Last Time Travel will mark the end of the original trilogy, and the new trilogy, beginning with Professor Layton and the Flute of Malevolent Destiny, will be released in Japan soon. Despite all of this, Hino reiterated at the end of the article that they "currently have no plans for a Wii release." A WiiWare title would sell like hotcakes, though.

One of the biggest cult favorite games released on the PS2 is now heading to the Nintendo DS. As we told you a few days ago, Capcom filed for a trademark based on the name Okamiden. Well, it turns out that this was the name for the DS Okami that Capcom plans to show at the Tokyo Game Show. As you can see by the teaser trailer on the Capcom TGS website, the game should look as good as DQ does on the DS. In its own, stylized way, of course.

Dragon Quest IX has sold more than 3 million copies according to the latest numbers from Enterbrain. The game has recorded 3.2 million sales, to be exact, between July 11 and July 26, making it the fastest-selling game for the NDS. The DSi hardware sales have apparently doubled on the sales of the DQ IX game alone. Sounds like a winner, can't wait for it here.

Activision has announced that the Band Hero game will be coming to the DS, and it will include a peripheral that fits into the GBA slot. The game had previously been confirmed for PS3, PS2, Wii, and XBox360. The one problem is, the DSi, as you know, has no GBA slot. This means that the game's included drum pad accessory will not be usable on the new Nintendo handheld model. It does not sound like it is necessary to play the game, but we heard you would certainly "get blisters" after prolonged play without the peripheral. Oh well.
