Up to now, no one has really pushed the envelope to bring games to the DSi with features above and beyond the capabilities of the standard DS. But come early next year, XSEED will change that with the release of KORG DS-10 Plus, a revamped follow-up to last year’s impressive KORG DS-10 music synthesizer.

KORG DS-10 Plus will be compatible with both the DS and DSi with mutual enhancements like “per-track MUTE/SOLO built into the SONG mode, and EDIT/PLAY enabled for all modes within the SONG mode for further improved real-time performance.” However, even more features will be available just for DSi users, including things like 12-voice polyphony, a 4-track analog synthesizer simulator, 2 drum machines and 2 effects layers, which XSEED says will give players “the functionality of two original KORG DS-10’s in one for the ultimate in music collaboration.”

“We are extremely pleased to build on the success of the original KORG DS-10 with the KORG DS-10 Plus,” stated Jun Iwasaki, President of XSEED Games. “Musicians and gamers alike banded together for the original, and we believe the enhanced KORG DS-10 Plus will help bring that community even closer together as anyone with a desire can create professional-sounding original music with a portable device.”
