IL-2 Sturmovik handheld details emerge

Planes! Missions! War! Etc.

New details of the handheld versions of IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey have been revealed,

The DS game will let you draw notes on the touch screen, recording information such as enemy positions and bombing co-ordinates. The rest of the time the bottom screen will display flight instruments, while the action takes place on the top screen.

More than 40 missions and 25 planes have been crammed onto the cartridge, along with maps that can be as big as 100km square.

The PSP version sounds a bit more similar to the Xbox 360 and PS3 games. It'll feature 30 missions, 30 aircraft and six major WWII battlefields. You can complete missions in any old order you like and there's a multiplayer mode for two-player dogfights.

Il-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey is being released for Xbox 360, PS3, DS and PSP on 4th September. You'll find plenty more info and some shiny videos over on the gamepage.
