Viva DSata

VivaLooks like we may be getting a new DS game in the near future. Microsofts Corporate Vice President the Game Studios Division, Shane Kim, has basically said, DS + Viva.

Now, I still don't have Viva, and don't have too much of a clue what it's about, besides being similar to harvest moon. But from what I read on it, this seems like an obvious makes sense idea. Portable fudgehogs and uh, stuff.

 From Shane Kims release, 

"A Kameo or a Viva Piñata on a DS makes a lot of sense in a lot of ways
from a franchise perspective. I think it’s fair to say that we’re going
to continue to invest in that property. Whether that is in the form of
a sequel, a product line extension or through merchandising, whatever
the case may be, that’s something that we’re going to stick with.
Whether you're talking about [publishing games on] mobile or the DS."

Now while it DOES make sense to make this port to the DS, the part that still confuses me is how well will a Microsoft and Nintendo partnership pan out? I guess we'll see.
