It looks like Myst
isn't the only oldschool PC adventure game to be ported to the DS. According to Mindscape, Syberia
is on its way, too. Since it's only a port, it won't contain any new content. Yet, we're glad to know that the game will feature touch-screen functionality, since that's always a plus in adventure titles. You can also expect an improved interface and menu system, to make inventories easier to navigate.
, you take control of businesswomen Kate Walker, who's looking for the long-lost heir of a toy-making family. One of Syberia's
best aspects, though, is its surreal, steampunk-esque setting, which we hope translates well onto the DS.
The game is scheduled to release in Europe this October, but there's no word yet of a North American localization.
