'The Settlers' (NDS) - 8 New Screens

by Rainier on Jan. 29, 2007 @ 12:29 a.m. PST

For the first time in 13 years, Blue Byte will be bringing The Settlers franchise to a new platform, the NDS. You are stranded on a deserted island after your ship sunk, now you and your crew need to build your settlement as efficient as possible, mine ore, provide food, and raise an army to protect it from invaders.

Features :

  • 2 campaigns (Roman and World campaign)
  • 4 races (Romans, Vikings, Asian, Nubian)
  • 30 professions
  • 6 military units
  • 7 continents with varying landscapes (snow, lava, swamps, forrest)

You do not control your units directly, but instead build structures, and connect them with roads so your settlers can, as efficiently as possible, do their job. The top screens shows your world, while the touchscreen will be used to manage your settlement.

The Settlers is scheduled for release on the Nintendo DS in Q1 2007.
