Orcs & Elves for DS

Carmack spills beans.

Reports suggest that id Software's mobile phone game Orcs & Elves will be appearing on the Nintendo DS.

"We're hoping to do a DS game version of Orcs and Elves," id guru John Carmack told Game|Life. "Moving over and enhancing the cell phone game on there would be our first real direct entry back into the Nintendo world."

Orcs & Elves is a first-person turn-based fantasy RPG, published by EA, which is due for release on mobile phones this February.

It's built on the engine from DOOM RPG, id's first venture into the world of Java, which we talked exclusively to John Carmack about last year.

There's currently no scheduled release date for the DS version.
