A Familiar Myst Surrounds You
Fog before Silent Hill made it fashionable.
Yes, after appearing on just about every other console imaginable -- including the reviled Jaguar and Jaguar CD platforms -- Myst is finally coming to the DS on May 13, courtesy of Empire Interactive, with new stylus/touch-screen functionality and additional gameplay segments that didn't make in the original.
"Nintendo DS has provided us an amazing, yet challenging opportunity to bring the MYST franchise to a huge and diverse audience - more than 65 million units have sold since the system's launch in 2004," said Karim Farghaly, vice president of sales, Empire Interactive. "MYST has been around over a decade, and it is an absolute pleasure to reintroduce the game to long-time fans and first-time adventure seekers."
"MYST is one of the greatest interactive casual games ever created and we are proud to work closely with the creators of the original to bring this experience to all Nintendo DS players of all ages." said Manny Granillo, president and chief designer, Hoplite Research, LLC.
We've also got a batch of new screens up, so feel free to take a gander -- you know, in case you've managed to miss seeing it for the last 13 years.
