Potentially incorrect online
retailer listing news now, as GameStop has put up a page for a MechAssault
game on the DS. Apparently,
MechAssault: Shadow War
will be released by Majesco this coming May. Now, there's at least a vaguely
believable element here, as Majesco is also publishing a portable version one of Microsoft's other big franchises,
Age of Empires
, on the DS.
Naturally, we're drawn to any game that features gigantic robots
wreaking havoc, so we'd be quite pleased to see this one adapted to a stylus driven blast-a-thon in the vein of
Metroid Prime: Hunters
. But then again, Majesco may just decide to go with recent silly trends and make it a
tactical card battle game instead.
