Nintendo DS “Easy Piano” comes to U.S., via Redmond

Nintendo DS owners wanting a plug-in piano keyboard for their device can stop envying their European counterparts.

Redmond publisher Valcon Games is bringing the “Easy Piano” game and keyboard to the North American market starting this week. Franco-Belgian game company GameLife released the title in Europe last September .

The $39 bundle includes a 13-note, full-octave external keyboard that plugs into the DS and software for learning keyboard skills, playing rythym games and composing and recording songs up to three minutes long on the DS.

“Easy Piano” is scaled to fit the standard DS; it doesn’t yet have a larger keyboard for the new DS XL. The game is starting to appear this week at major retailers.
