    Its a surprise to me as the developers said that they had no interest in a DS game. I hope its the still Intelligent Systems who are making it though.

    I also hope that theres something new in the game other than touchscreen control. Online and co-op mode would be great.

    I wonder if they'll reuse graphics and sounds from GBA like Advance Wars did?

    Awesome news, although I wish they hadn't gone all Donkey Kong Country with the graphics.

    The GBA FE's just have a great artistic flare (thanks to the animations) that I fear might get lost with this new look.

    This looks mid-90's-shareware-packed-on-a-stupid-cd ugly. What are they thinking ? SNES graphics looks better...

    EDIT : I've remembered exactly what it looks like : ULTIMA VIII ! check this [​IMG]

    Christ first Advance Wars DS 2 look is messed up and now FE DS! They really lack a certain flair.

    Gameplay and story better be great.

    Thank God!

    The Ds's touch screen has been begging for a FE game from the start!

    I must admit, it does look a bit odd. I'd like to see it in motion before I judge.
    The thing that impressed me the most about the GBA ones was the awesome animations. If they keep that, then I'm already sold.

    Who are they trying to target with these new "realistic" looking graphics for Advance Wars 2 and Fire Emblem DS?

    Gonintendo have done comparisons of the screenshots. The first is the first NES game, followed by the SNES version and then the new DS game.
