Nintendo News | Civilization Revolution Heads to Wii/DS

By Jorge Ba-oh 28.06.2007 5

In an interesting announcement, 2K and Take-Two have announced the release of Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution on next-generation consoles and handhelds including Wii and DS bringing the classic "God Game" genre to Nintendo's consoles.

The latest Civilization game is set to be built from scratch for all next-gen consoles and handhelds, making players attempt to rule the world by creating and leading a civilization from the dawn of man into the futuristic space-age. The game is set to include 16 civilizations to master and lead to victory, an array of famous historical leaders to play as or compete against, and accessible maps and streamlined time scale for quicker games, intense combat, and constant action. Online play, including ranked matches, leaderboards and extra content is set to be included (however it is uncertain if this feature would be available for all versions).

"Civilization Revolution is the game I've always wanted to make! We are excited to take advantage of the power of next generation consoles and the ingenuity of handhelds, to create a great and unique strategy game for newcomers to the series, as well as the millions of fans around the world who enjoy Civilization on the PC."
Sid Meier, Director of Creative Development at Firaxis Games.

"Civilization is one of the world's top selling PC game series with more than 8 million units sold, and continues to be recognized as one of the greatest franchises ever created. We are excited to have Sid Meier getting back to his roots as the game's Lead Designer to carry on its legacy with Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution."
Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K.

Civilization Revolution will be released in spring 2008 for next generation consoles and handhelds.

Fantastic news! I know Sid Meier has previously spoken positively about the Wii and DS, but people presumed that meant Pirates! would come...but Civ is extremely surprising! Smilie

I've never played a Civilization game. It just looks too slow and weird.

The trailer on shows the Xbox 360 and PS3 logos but it does not show the DS or PSP logos either. Hopefully there is a Wii version. The Wii Remote was designed for this. Dual Analog controllers were not.

Brilliant! Smilie

OHHHHH MY GOD~!!!! Remember how I made a thread about how cool it would be for the game to come out on DS! I am glad I got a DS!
