Nibris — the folks behind the missing-in-action Wii title Sadness — has announced it’s adding another game to its stable of titles, Egyptian Dental Fair for the Nintendo DS.

Available this fall, Egyptian Dental Fair is said to be a collection of 30 games that will not only educate gamers on ancient Egypt, but on the early history of dentistry. Players step into the shoes of a variety of historical figures, including Cleopatra, Tutankhamen, and more as they use the Nintendo DS touch screen to clean and pull teeth in what Nibris is calling “wacky oral-themed adventures.”

Best part? Nibris will be including a working toothbrush that also doubles as a DS stylus, along with a sarcophagus shaped holder. And that — along with an education — may very well be worth the $29.99 suggested retail price.
