EA to bring Sims franchise to Nintendo DS

Electronic Arts has announced that the next console evolution of the hugely popular Sims franchise, The Urbz: Sims in the City, is set to appear on the Nintendo DS around the time of the platform's launch in the USA this November.

The game, which is being co-developed for the DS by Griptonite Games, is the second title to be announced for the new Nintendo handheld by EA; the company's Need for Speed franchise was featured in the list of forthcoming titles for the system back at E3. Reports from retailers earlier this week suggested that Nintendo will launch the DS in North America on November 11th at a price point of around $179.99, which would place The Urbz as a launch title for the new console - or as close as makes no difference.
