Happy Happy Joy Joy!
EA announced today the first details for their new games, My Sims Kingdom, which will be coming to the Nintendo Wii and DS systems exclusively in Autumn 2008.
MySims Kingdom will set you on a story of adventure, discovery and exploration to help King Roland and his subjects revitalize the Kingdom. Gamers will be tasked to bring the Kingdom back to its former glory, and to help new and old friends alike, discover new lands and build to the limit of your imagination.
You'll be able to explore the Capital City, meet new friends, including King Roland, Princess Butter, and the Wizard Marlon and finally after a while, set sail to other lands to explore the world further.
Throughout your journey, new characters, lands, and clever new contraptions will be revealed. You'll construct and do everything from tending your pigs to finding treasure chests. Newly-added building options will help you accomplish the tasks you're challenged with along the way, including building broken bridges. Everything is customizable, allowing every creation within your world to have a signature look.
My Sims Kingdom on Nintendo DS will allow gamers to add a new chapter to the saga, challenging them to help the King thwart the plans of evil in a far flung corner of the Kingdom. Many new activities and mini-games will be included to help you persuade the King that your island is the ultimate royal destination.
"MySims has been met with such enthusiasm by players and families everywhere, we are excited to make MySims its own franchise within The Sims Label," said Rod Humble, Head of Studio for The Sims Label. "MySims Kingdom has players helping King Roland and his subjects make the MySims world a better place by completing rewarding quests, building houses, bridges or even making contraptions powered by electricity or water. And MySims Kingdom on Nintendo DS, adds many new activities such as kayaking, ski jumping, populating the town zoo and many others!"
Expect to see more on this game before its release in the Fall of 2008.
