Namco announces Mage Knight: Destiny's Soldier, a turn-based strategy game for the NDS. Based on the miniature game from WizKids Games. True to the tabletop gaming franchise, Mage Knight: Destiny's Soldier will have players embark on an epic journey where they must gather, build and customize an army of their very own.

In a world ravaged by war, a retired soldier is forced to take up arms once again. The Solonavi are corrupting the Land, and a great army of warriors must be gathered to stop them. It is this soldier's destiny to bring these warring factions together and fight against the Solonavi. His army is the Land's only hope to prevent its total devastation. Players assume the role of Destiny's Soldier, creating and commanding an army of their own to defeat the Solonavi and bring peace back to the Land.

"Mage Knight: Destiny's Soldier should appeal to those familiar and unfamiliar with the Mage Knight franchise," said Jeff Lujan, business director at Namco Hometek Inc. ~SThe sheer amount of storytelling, strategy gameplay, and army customization is a testament to how deep and rich the Mage Knight universe really is. We are very excited to bring this unique and innovative tabletop gaming experience to the Nintendo DS."

"Mage Knight: Destiny's Soldier is exactly what we had envisioned Mage Knight on the Nintendo DS to be," said Jordan Weisman, CEO of WizKids. "We are pleased to license our intellectual property to a company that understands and appreciates how special it really is."

Mage Knight: Destiny's Soldier is an exciting and innovative gaming experience that stays true to its collectable miniature gaming roots. With the use of the touch screen controls on the Nintendo DS, players can virtually pick up units, deploy them, issue commands and roll dice just like they would in the tabletop game. Players will have a variety of different ways to experience and enjoy Mage Knight on their Nintendo DS.

Players will take destiny into their own hands in Spring 2006.
