Hudson announced yesterday that they are bringing some Texas Hold ‘Em action to the DSi with High Stakes Texas Hold ‘Em. Although the attached release doesn’t provide much info on the gameplay itself, it does have both single and multiplayer modes. Up to four people can play using DS Wireless for multiplayer, but that is the maximum number of players (CPU or Human) that the game supports, well below the traditional 9-10 that sits at a table in person. Although couple of nice features built in look to be single-button betting, player analysis and hand checking. High Stakes Texas Hold ‘Em is available now and costs 500 DSi points. Check out the screens and intro video below:
