At a recent event to publicise the continuing line of Touch Generations software, Satoru Iwata revealed a new title in development for Nintendo DS which has already got chins wagging: Ray Mears Fruit Training.
Iwata, standing hand in hand with TV’s favourite survivalist and indiscriminate fruit eater Ray Mears, proclaimed:
2008 will be the year that Nintendo, along with Ray Mears, teach everyone all about fruits and that.
Ray Mears was also keen to add to the hype, despite this being his first foray into the world of Videogames. He told the thousand strong mass of journalists and fruit fans alike:
My fruit training game could save lives. Last week, I hadn’t had anything to eat for literally 20 minutes. Luckily through training my brain to be good at seeing fruit, I was able to not only identify, but eat a mango that was underneath a chair; and a crisis was averted.
Ray Mears Fruit Training should be in the shops for harvest festival.
