Along with all the 3DS news it finally shared with the public last night, Nintendo trotted out a few regular DS games, including an extremely curious title that blends its Pokemon series with The Typing of the Dead-style gameplay.

Scheduled to hit Japan some time in 2011 (no plans for a U.S. release announced yet), Pokemon Typing DS has players battling against "hundreds of different types of Pokemon" -- except instead of engaging in turn-based combat, players type out words to fight.

Of course, learning how to type with a touchscreen isn't very useful, so each copy of Pokemon Typing DS will include a "Nintendo Wireless Keyboard", according to a report from Andriasang. I wonder if other future games will ever use the accessory?
