The uniquity of portable game consoles like Nintendo DS in teens' lives is being leveraged by DreamCatcher Games and JoWooD Productions, who are producing a game for the DS that will let prospective drivers train for the written portion of the drivers license test, as well as practice in a variety of mini-games.

'April 30th, 2008 (Toronto, CANADA): DreamCatcher Games and JoWooD Productions, leading worldwide publishers and distributors of interactive entertainment software, today announced the development of Drivers Ed Portable for the Nintendo DS system. The game will allow teens worldwide to prepare for the written portion of their driver's licence examination, customized to the country, state or province in which they live.

"Nintendo DS is proving to be an exceptional platform for delivering all types of content, not just traditional games," says Brian Gladman, Global Product Marketing Manager at DreamCatcher. "Everyone needs to study for their driving test, and we're confident lots of teens will enjoy having a fun way to study the material on a platform they are comfortable with." '
