Users of the ridiculously popular Nintendo DS handheld (who also happen to own a Wii) will soon be able use their console's broadband connection to download complete games as well as demos and add-ons, which can then be transferred wirelessly to the portable device, according to a New York Times article.

The first game to use the new service is not far off. The puzzle-solving game Professor Layton and the Curious Village will have extra puzzles available for download this way when it launches in February. This latest move by Nintendo will see tighter links between its two best-selling consoles and reportedly mark the start of additional functionality being added to the DS.
