Electronic Arts has officially lifted the viel off of SimCity DS for the Nintendo DS. The game, which will allow players to create and manage their own pocket sized city while being on the go, will also leverage the unique capabilities of the handheld when it ships worldwide this summer.
Among the new features introduced in this version of SimCity will be stylus and microphone controls, from blowing into the microphone to put out fires in the city to signing off on mayoral proclamations with the stylus. In addition, the game will take advantage of the handheld’s wireless capabilities, allowing players to communicate and exchange data with each other. Also, the developers have also included a wide array of recognizable international landmarks to spice up the city.
