    The Wii one looks very interesting but they are said to be more aimed at the casual gamer, I do hope that there is something for casual and hardcore gamers.

    Be a powerful mayor — create, enjoy and destroy your ultimate city. Start by zoning your city, constructing homes, businesses, factories, skyscrapers, freeways, railroads, and much more. SimCity Creator is a visually exciting experience with a completely new user interface, designed specifically for the Wii and the Wii remote. You’ll discover many ways to customize your city, including 13 city styles to explore, such as American, European and Asian themes. More city styles will be revealed, so stay tuned for more information!

    You can also place a selection of more than 30 “Hero” buildings into your city to make it distinctive and momentous. Some of these iconic buildings are based on the current day, some on history and some on fantasy. The more city styles you explore, the more Hero building options you have.

    For the first time, take the liberty to build transportation systems with free placement of rounded and curved roads and rail lines, taking your city to new creative and curvy heights. And get a new perspective on your cityscape from a helicopter, a jet or a propeller plane which you can use to fly over your creation. Check out what you’ve built in your aircraft of choice!

    Disasters that players of SimCity always love remain an important and entertaining element in SimCity Creator. Using the Wii remote you can create earthquakes, tornados, call in destructive robots and monsters, create fires and discover many more ways to cause havoc. You created it, and now you can destroy it. With hours of fun and replayability, the fate of your city and its citizens are in your hands!

    Guide your city from ancient times into the future with SimCity Creator for Nintendo DS. Evolve your city through time, starting with ancient times, the middle ages, modern times, present day and the future. Four play modes are available, Challenge, Free Play, Chance Encounter and Gallery, giving options to make the game as challenging or as creative as you want. Earn epic landmarks along the way to enhance your city and mark your progress into the next era. Choose your path through history and make a city for the ages.

    “SimCity Creator for the Wii and Nintendo DS brings two separate, delightful new ways to create, enjoy and destroy your own cities,” said Rod Humble, Head of Studio for The Sims Label. “On the Wii, for the first time in the SimCity franchise, you will have the ability to build curved roads and differently shaped zones allowing you to make more authentic places all utilizing the motions of the Wii remote. Employing the new city advisor system, you will be able to make the game as complex or simple as you want. On Nintendo DS, we will give you the ability to make a city develop through time and to overcome the different challenges each era of urban development presents. I know both long-time and new SimCity players will enjoy these innovative experiences in SimCity Creator starting this September!”

    SimCity Creator will be available on the Wii and Nintendo DS on September 22, 2008 in North America and on September 19, 2008 in Europe and Asia-Pacific regions."

    Isn't the title a bit redundant?

    Sim City already means creating cities... [​IMG]

    The medieval thing on the DS game seems nice..

    The Wii game is looking pretty.. anyway, the Wii is perfect for games that need the mouse to play, we should be getting more of those :/

    The DS Version is the same as the japanese Sim City DS2 and it wasn't bad. Just my Translation didn't go much further than some of the menues and thus I couldn't play further. [​IMG]
    I hope this game won't lag in the US/EU version like the first one!

    I must say the ds screens looks great... I always wanted a simple simcity-ish game, with good controlls, and simcity DS wasn't it! this on the other hand looks way better... can't wait to try it out! [​IMG]

    The second one was supposed to be a big improvement over the first what with it actually being a lot less of a port.

    I really think it'll be better, EA seem to be wanting to get rid of this thing where people think their games are bad.

    The screenshots with you overseeing the whole city look quite bad.

    Since the last Sim City DS, I don't see Sim City being ported to the DS.
    I feel this game needs some form of graphics processing.

    Oh well, but I'm sure in action it'll look better I guess. =/

    Global Warming age, what a load of bullocks, if it were true to life then wouldn't the age after Global Warming age be like the "Floods and Destruction age".

    Looks good... But the title. 'Sim City Creator'. sounds like the game is about making your own Sim City game...
