Trend: Nintendo DS Serves As A Life Coach

My sources (as in Wired's Japanese School Girl Watch ) have alerted me to an exciting trend from our our geeky gal pals in Japan.

Apparently, some young women have ditched traditional DS games Super Mario and even non-traditional DS drinking guides for games like Female Power Emergency Up! DS, which promises to "Change your destiny in three months!" by measuring skills in love, fashion, beauty, diet, and fortune-telling.

Even more touchy-feely is Mainichi Kokorobics DS Therapy, which offers sessions with a digital psychiatrist. Need help with your waistline instead of your subconscious? There's always Yoga Anywhere, which is like having a personal trainer and tips on daily workouts in your pockets. I am going to stick with using my Blackberry to watch FitSugar's workout videos, but I think I could use a digital psychiatrist.

I don't think I'd trust a digital therapist all that much. But maybe the Yoga instructor.
