Nintendo DS Gets Hip!

Hip Gear, a division of Hip Interactive Corp. and Canada’s largest third party accessories provider, today announced its full line of accessories for the new Nintendo DS, which will launch in North America in November 2004. Hip Gear will be shipping the line to retailers across North America in time for the busy holiday season.

We are really keyed up about our new line-up of accessories for Nintendo’s DS,” said Arindra Singh, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hip Interactive. “Experts are already expecting the DS to sell like wildfire, not only on the strength of Nintendo’s first-party titles, but also because of the DS’ unique dual-screen, touch screen/stylus, wireless and voice activation capabilities.”

Hip Gear is launching all the essential accessories – fun and stylish carrying cases, screen protectors, stylus pens to take full advantage of the touch screen feature, adapters and headphones. These high quality products will enhance any gamer’s DS playing experience.

With the Nintendo DS due for launch in Europe in early 2005, Hip Gear products for the Nintendo DS will follow shortly thereafter.
