Proving once and for all that virgin sacrifices to a multitude of shadowy deities does in fact yield results, a rather confused EA finally announced a stateside version of SimCity DS (based off of SimCity 3000), that lovable juego de ciudad from our long-forgotten youths.
Some extra features that you may or may not have known about? It turns out you can put out fires by blowing into the mic of the DS (hardly a substitute for proper fire fighters, we think). You can "sign off" on various deeds and proclaimations with a whip of the stylus, and there will apparently be some form of wireless data exchange. Our guess is that players will able to "neighborize", by which one another's cities will become adjacent in the game's geography.
City-snatching UFOs, here we come!
Finally confirmed: SimCity DS to America
