Konami preps creature-battling DSi RPG Foto Showdown

You can also spawn monsters with DSi camera

Product: Foto Showdown | Publisher: Konami | Genre: RPG
For: DSi

It's taken a while but it finally seems that some publishers are looking to use the DSi's camera.

EA announced its action-platformer Foto Face: The Face Stealer Strikes recently, and now Konami has been talking up its turn-based strategy RPG-cum-Pokemon game Foto Showdown.

The turn-based strategy part of the game seems to be fairly generic, in terms of getting you to battle various sets of monsters against various opponents (one at a time), as well as setting up decks of different characters, weapons and health upgrades.

What makes the game more interesting is how you can you use the DSi camera. Basically, the system works using a colour recognition to spawn monsters based on the dominant colours in your photos.

Hardly rocket science then, but potentially interesting if Konami manages to link rare colour tones to rare monsters, for example.

Otherwise, Foto Showdown is full of customisation and collection options, that will have you playing through more than 70 levels, upgrading your powers, purchasing more powerful weapons, as well as adding medicine and tools to your armoury. You'll also be able to battle against your friends via the local wi-fi mode.

You can get an idea how it all works in the following video.



Foto Showdown is due out for Nintendo DSi in February 2010.

Voice overs are always great... but the artwork does not match the voice over.
