October 6, 2005

Nintendo will launch a free WiFi game service next month, just in time for Christmas.

The games will be compatible with existing WiFi networks and will also have an optional USB connection device that plugs into PC ports.

The service will begin Nov. 14 with the release of Mario Kart DS and Tony Hawk's American Sk8land. Other games are slated for release in December and early 2006.

The product requires a high-speed Internet connection and will not work on dialup.
