Majesco's high-tension airport-management sim joins sequel to Atlus' challenging dungeon crawler on Nintendo's portable this summer.
With nearly 65 million units sold globally as of the end of last year, the Nintendo DS has a wide and diverse audience that needs to be catered to. Luckily, publishers are lining up to meet that demand with games that touch all ends of the gaming-audience spectrum.
To wit, Majesco has announced that Air Traffic Chaos will touch down on Nintendo's portable this summer. Air-traffic control is considered to be one of the most stressful real-world jobs, and Majesco hopes to replicate the high degree of tension while removing the life-and-death implications with Air Traffic Chaos.
Players will be charged with managing takeoffs, gate assignments, and landings for 14 different airlines, and noteworthy performances will yield awards that include 16 different merit badges. Play spans across three difficulty levels containing five stages each, and the game also features rumble-pack support.
Also catering toward fans of challenging gameplay, Atlus has announced a sequel to last year's dungeon crawler Izuna: Legend of the Unemployed Ninja. The Unemployed Ninja Returns takes its cues from traditional roguelike dungeon crawlers, with a backdrop of randomly generated environments and chance-item collection.
This time out, the titular jobless ninja heads to a wedding, where she attempts to track down her missing sidekick Shino. Along the way, Izuna manages to once again anger a pantheon of gods, who will work to thwart her efforts. Atlus expects to release Izuna 2 for the DS on July 22.
Coincidentially, i was just playing Izuna1. I'm glad to see the sequel is being released soon. Once again, thank you Atlus.
Wow, Air Traffic Chaos is right up my alley since ATC is what I went to school for, I'll definitely be getting this one!
Air Traffic Chaos actually sounds pretty good - just the kind of quirky game that can shine on the DS. If it turns out well I'll buy it.
I've watched the video of Izuna 2 and it's looks great. It's a title that most DS users should take a look at this summer.
