    Isn't this old news? 'Cause Anno 1701: Dawn of Discovery is already out for the DS.

    Hmm... not sure. Why would this be recently listed in Joystiq then? Perhaps the DS version was leaked? Or maybe they made a mistake and it was supposed to be news about the Wii/PC versions only?

    Hmm. I just checked your source. the screenshots are valid though. But Anno 1701 Dawn of Discovery is already out for a pretty long time:

    So this will probably will be named differently. But a new Anno game seems good to me [​IMG]

    Looking good, my brother loves Anno games.
    That 2-player Co-op on the Wii is interesting.

    This is good news. 1701 is one of the better city-building / strategy games on the DS.

    I know the series is a fairly long running one on the PC but I did enjoy the DS incarnation. Good to see more are a possibility.

    I've been a fan of this genre for quite some time and this is GREAT news. I enjoyed the DS version that came out a while ago and I've played a few of the latest PC versions.

    I mean, they're no CIV4, but then again, what is? Perhaps this will make up for Civ: Revolution, which I didn't particularly enjoy.

    I have been waiting for a new City building game, and the previous Anno for DS is my favorite so far. So I'm rather happy [​IMG]
