Posted by Mark Raby

Redwood City (CA) - Electronic Arts announced today that it has shipped Pogo Island for the Nintendo DS, marking the first time the software giant's casual online gaming division has made its way to a major non-PC platform.

Though Pogo.com is a site best known for its online gaming community, the DS title is not WiFi compatible.  Instead, Pogo Island packages a handful of the site's one-player games.

Word Whomp, Poppit, Phlinx, Tri-Peaks Solitaire, and Squelchies are the games included in the DS software.  They are presented inside a virtual island, which the player must conquer to win the game.

The game is rated E and carries a list price of around $30.
