Nintendo is developing a game about that plans to teach you all about the economy. Yes, you read correctly - the economy.

Probably not one of Nintendo's biggest cashcow ideas, the publisher thinks it's about time the economy was made more fun, and has made a deal with Tokyo stock market index Nikkei to reproduce financial figures on the DS.

Apparently the point of the game is to help us understand the economy and how it all works and then to test us on whether we've actually been listening through quizzes. Sounds like a handheld version of my Economics A-Level.

Hopefully, the fact its Nikkei providing the figures means that the game is staying Japan way but that remains to be seen as there's been no official statement from Nintendo as yet.

We'll keep you updated though. We know you can't wait to get your hands on this one.
