The return of Sim City

I love that ticker.
That's right. The game that sucked up hundreds of your precious hours as you lovingly crafted your commercial zones and coal-based power plants is coming to a DS near long as you live slightly east of the Asian mainland, that is. The latest issue of Famitsu has confirmed a special DS version of the classic Sim City 3000 (considered by many to be the best in the series) coming to Japan, complete with full stylus control. And that's not all! They've even thrown in some extras: mini-games and a special advisor to help you fend off those alien invasions. Sweet.

Sim City does nothing but bring back ever-so-fond memories for a very, very large group of people. Though a North American release has not been confirmed, it would be absolute lunacy for EA to ignore such a guaranteed and obvious profit. With any luck, you'll be giving those silly college-trained civil engineers a run for their money soon enough.
