Myst coming to the DS

The Myst franchise is either great or incredibly boring, depending on who to talk to on the subject (we've enjoyed every Myst game we've played, to tell the truth). But, regardless of that, there are plenty of reasons why the franchise has been around for so long. It practically invented a gaming genre.

And while we'd like to say that Myst on the DS is going to be a brand new game, instead Midway is looking to bring the game that started it all to Nintendo's handheld platform. No worries though, as the game's code has been re-written, specifically with the DS in mind. New sound clips, new touch-screen controls and a new age to explore (the Rime Age) should help ensure both fans of the series and newcomers find something to enjoy come time for the game's release this November in Europe.
