EA rebuilds SimCity franchise on Wii, DS with SimCity Creator
May 30, 2008
Electronic Arts will be putting together a new project from the bricks of an old and well-loved franchise. SimCity Creator will reintroduce the classic SimCity series on both the Nintendo Wii and DS platforms. Find out the details to both versions in our full article after the jump.
It seems that Electronic Arts will be giving everyone the chance to play mayor for a day once again as it reintroduces the classic SimCity franchise on the Nintendo platforms. SimCity Creator reinvents all the memorable features that made this city building simulator such a popular title.
Old school players will be at home with the Wii version of the game as it brings back familiar game mechanics such as zoning, iconic buildings and even disasters. In addition, players can choose from a variety of building styles which can affect the appearance of your entire city.
The neat thing about SimCity Creator for the Wii is the fact that you can share your creative civil plans with other people throughout the world with the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection network. Through the service, you can give access to the cities you’ve created in mission mode and get feedback and rankings from other players as well.
The DS version will feature the same basic gameplay, but with its own unique spin added to it. Players can get the chance to evolve their cities across different eras – from ancient times to the modern era and all the way into the future.
SimCity Creator is scheduled to be released this September 19 in Europe, with a follow up in North America by September 22. Until then, why not sit back and enjoy the bevy of screenshots we were able to collect from the game.
