Strategy First and Glyphic Entertainment announce the signing of Warlords Nintendo DS. This classic turn-base strategy title compliments Disciples II DS, Jagged Alliance 2 which are also under development.

"It is with great pleasure that we are teaming up with Glyphic Entertainment to bring famed Warlords to the DS platform. This great classic is a perfect fit for the unique Nintendo DS system, a great combination to give fantasy strategic goodness right in the hands of the player, all this under the competent care of Glyphic Entertainment." -- Richard Therrien, Strategy First's Vice President of Development.

"The Warlords turn-based strategy series is a natural fit for the intuitive stylus-based interface of the Nintendo DS. We are very excited to be working with Glyphic Entertainment and Strategy First as they bring the series to an entirely new generation of gamers who will undoubtedly grow to love Warlords equally as much as the millions of others who have over the past 16 years." -- Steve Fawkner, founder of Infinite Interactive and creator of the Warlords universe.

"Glyphic Entertainment will be bringing one of the world's best-selling strategy franchises to the Nintendo DS platform, providing a compelling gaming experience to a rapidly growing gaming audience. The Warlords series has already captivated millions of turn-based strategy game players on both desktop and Pocket PC platforms, and we are very eager to expand the franchise to the Nintendo DS." -- G.R. Moore, founder of Glyphic Entertainment.

``With this new agreement Strategy First becomes a multi platform company with quality titles not only for the PC market, but also for the wildly popular Nintendo DS platform. We have worked diligently to expand the company's business onto new platforms and it is now well positioned to see further growth in these areas. With DS versions of Disciples II and Warlords scheduled for release in the first half of this year and the DS version of Jagged Alliance 2 due for release shortly thereafter, we anticipate significant additional revenue to be generated from these new products,'' said Clive Kabatznik, CEO of Silverstar Holdings.

``We are confident that these products will be well received in Europe and internationally through Empire's well established distribution network. This is further evidence of the operational and marketing synergies we are working toward as we seek to build on the mutual strengths of both businesses,'' said Ian Higgins, CEO of Empire Interactive.

Disciples II DS

Disciples DS is the much anticipated debut of the award winning Disciples Franchise on the Nintendo DS. With over two million copies of the Disciples franchises having been sold over the past ten years, Disciples DS is poised to meet strong market demand and become a name synonymous with great strategy/RPG action.

Warlords DS

Warlords DS is an eight player turn-based game of conquest and empire. Different worlds provide a stage for the player to excel in combat. In the quest for final victory, gamers can assemble vast armies, conquer and loot mighty cities, undertake perilous quests, make and break alliances, and wield magical artifacts of great power. Although economics, diplomacy, and exploration weigh heavily in the outcome of each game, the primary emphasis is placed on combat.
