Nintendo DS News | First Shots of Brothers in Arms, Plus New Info

By Ben 27.02.2007 21

French website Jeux-France has obtained the latest issue of Nintendo Power magazine and inside there is further confirmation of the Brothers in Arms series coming to Nintendo DS. In-game shots have also surfaced, along with some concrete information on the game itself. There will be 3 different campaigns, set over 16 missions, with the scene being initially set in North America and stretching as far as Normandy during the backdrop of World War II.

The top screen is to be used for the 3D action, whilst the touch-screen will allow for weapon changing, aiming at enemies and for the launching of deadly grenades simply by drawing upwards with your stylus! In addition, you will be able to drive Jeeps and Tanks. Sadly, however, nothing has been mentioned about the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection in conjunction with the multiplayer side of the game.

Check out the links below for the first three scans:

  • Scan 1
  • Scan 2
  • Scan 3

    The game is currently set for a Summer 2007 release over in North America, so stayed tuned for further updates in the coming months here on Cubed3...

    better images here

    Cant be sure but I think it looks graphically good. Could be wrong.

    -Have you any idea what it's like to be a Fembot living in a Manbot's Manputer's world?
    -What?

    Looks...special, to say the least. A shame those shots don't really show whether the graphics are super awesome or super mediocre. I can't imagine it looking any worse than Splinter Cell Chaos Theory on the DS though

    Nice one Janet, I reccomend that you replace thos link with Janet's ones Dojo.

    All done. The newer shots show it a lot better, yeah, and just as I though, they seem to be SCCT DS standard. A bit murky, muddy. Ah well.

    Looks pretty good actually. The shots are low quality, but it has potential. It'll look better in motion too.

    I was surprised ... was initially thinking 'you have to be kidding' ... but not bad ...

    The terrible scanning might be hiding horrid pixelation, but from those shots it does look amazing.

    Suddenly high on "look out for" list

    Wow, it looks great. I hope this is done well. Nice one Dojo!

    Enoch Powell was right, and you know it.

    This could be a good multiplayer game. If there is no multiplayer then I am not interested.

    Woooooooo!!!

    True. If there isn't a kick-butt multi-player mode then I don't care.

    Hopefully it will be online. The DS needed another FPS, and at least we are getting one, although I wonder if it will be of any quality?

    That looks pretty damn good for DS as far as I can tell.

    Thinking about it, if Ubisoft managed an online component in the DS version of Open Season, I can't see many excuses for there not being one here.

    It doesnt tickle my fancy... TBH...Smilie

    I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

    Have to be honest them graphics are pretty damn impressive for a DS game, especially a 3D FPS.


    Mike Gee of iZINE said, "...The Verve, as he [Richard Ashcroft] promised, had become the greatest band in the world. Most of the critics agreed with him. Most paid due homage. The Verve were no longer the question mark or the clich. They were the statement and the definition."

    I thought that it looked good, its a shame theres yet ANOTHER lazy usage of the second screen

    This game is looking promising. Add a good multiplayer mode and online play and I'll be buying this.

    ...Meh

    If Metroid can do it graphically then so can this. I dunno if I'll get it, it's not on my list of games to get... they're all Japanese ones >.<; But it does look promising.

    This game actually looks good. I want it.
