SimCity DS 2 revealed

Goes back in time.

EA Japan has whipped the festive wrappers off of plans for a second SimCity DS game.

The sequel was spotted in the latest issue of Famitsu, handily scanned by DS-x2, and features a couple of shots and some words we cannot understand.

However, according to Kotaku the premise will be similar to Civilization, and let you build settlements through the ages, from cavemen to the industrial revolution.

We are still waiting to hear back from EA UK whether it will be available here, but will let you know when we do.

SimCity DS was released in July last year but failed to really live up to its obvious potential, preferring wacky mini-games and puzzles to the franchise's familiar strategical depth.

Still, it was far from awful and clearly demonstrated it can and does work on the handheld. Pop over to our SimCity DS review to find out more.
