During today's Nintendo Direct announcement, the company certainly saved the best for last. Yes, that's right - it claimed the game is available to download on your trusty old PSP right now, and that's just a load of rubbish. Every game starts out the same, with different colored bricks dropping from the sky that you can rotate in any direction. What's a badge?
