Nintendo announced not only a TV tuner for the Nintendo DS, but also a web browser named “Nintendo DS Browser.” The DS Browser comes as no shock as Nintendo has been heavily developing and pushing their Wi-Fi network.

The DS Browser was developed as a joint project between Nintendo and Opera. The DS Browser is based off the popular Opera mobile browser software.

The DS Browser takes full advantage of the dual screens. The botom screen shows the page in full, while the top screen zooms in on content. The user can also set the browser to show the website vertically across both screens.

The touch pen is used for inputting characters, with ATOK Japanese recognition software built in.

The Nintendo DS Browser is set to launch in Japan in June for 3,800 Yen (around $32).
