    It seems the classic Blue Byte game The Settlers is coming to the DS! Since the news page is in german (couldn't find any info in gods language, english) I don't really know much about it but maybe someone who speaks german can fill in with some details?

    got some more info and it seems like it's a port of The Settlers 2 of some sort, will definitely be interesting!

The portable settling fun will be available in the fourth quarter 2006 in Germany and the EMEA territories (Europe, the middle east and Asia Pacific region).

    The Roman crew of a ship strikes it on an apparently uninhabited island. For surviving now an intelligent planning is necessary: Ship farmer, Förster and scouts need food and building materials. Agriculture, cattle breeding, hunt and fishing provide for the well-being of the settler people, while mines supply supply at ores, coal and gold. A flourishing economy lets the new settlement grow. Driven lurk everywhere: The island realm must be protected militarily.

    Ralf Wirsing, Studioleiter of Blue byte: „Now we offer the successful settler row in portable form to Gamern. Strategy plays are also for of Nintendo Handheld console a magnet. The play principle of the SETTLERS supports the functions of the DS in singular way “.

    The mobile settling fun falls back to the popular play mechanics of the row: The player builds buildings and connects her with roads. Is the more intelligently the way system put on, the more efficiently functions the economy. Thus the Wuselvolk is not steered directly. Instead the SETTLERS invite to watch them genüsslich the work. By employment Nintendo of the DS™ stylus is optimally used the dual screen. In the Touchscreen the administration of the settlement is organized, the Topscreen shows the alive world of the SETTLERS.

    The most important characteristics:

    - 2 campaigns: „Roman campaign “and „world campaign “
    - Suitor settling mode with all peoples against the CCU opponent
    - 30 different occupational groups and 6 soldier types

    - Different landscapes (forests, lava, ice surfaces, sumps…) on 7 continents
    - Simplest control with Nintendo the DS™ stylus.
    - The rendition on the Touch and the Top screen can be exchanged at any time, in order to ensure simplest operation by Nintendo DS™ stylus
    - Stepless zoom shot loads for observing the wuseligen settlers in

    That’s fantastic news, I hope they keep it a true RTS.
    Now if only a version of C&C or Warcraft would be released.

    Never played the original, but I thought this looked prett interesting.

    Any of you guys play the DS Age of Empires release? What'd you think of it? I thought it was pretty cool, but it bored the hell out of me. Hope this is a lot better.
