Vicarious Visions has been at the forefront of the Nintendo handhelds all the way back in the days of the Game Boy Color. When the Game Boy Advance launched in the US, the development team did everything it could to be there on the ground floor with the platform: Vicarious Visions' GBA version of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 is still considered one of the handheld's finest moments. When the Nintendo DS launched, VV was there on Day One with Spider-Man 2, and the day Nintendo flipped the switch on the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service for the DS, the team had the first online third-party game available: Tony Hawk's American Sk8land.
So, it's not surprising to find out that, with the Nintendo DSi finally available in the US, Vicarious Visions has been working in the background to have one of the first third-party DSiWare titles available in the system's launch window. The game is called Mixed Messages, a unique multiplayer-only experience that really could only work as a DSiWare title.
