Myst, the popular adventure-based video game, will be released on the Nintendo DS it was announced today.
Empire Interactive confirmed that the title will be recreated and enhanced to fit the platform. The worlds and environments will be better and the original soundtrack will also complete the Rime Age, the Age that was never included in the original Myst.
"As one of the strongest video game franchises in history, with more than 12 million games sold, we felt it was only natural to partner with Hoplite Research and Cyan Worlds to bring MYST to an innovative system like the DS," said Karim Farghaly, vice president of sales, Empire Interactive. "The DS addition to the MYST game library allows players to take advantage of the new features created exclusively for the DS, while still maintaining the integrity of this classic game, creating a refreshed, on-the-go adventure experience for players of all ages."
The game will use the DS’s stylus system and both screens will be used to display more information, as well as enhancing the method of interaction.
The game is due to be out in North America for March 2008.
