Following the success of Ankh and Ankh: Heart of Osiris on PC, XIDER Games and Daedalic Entertainment have launched the next offering in the Ankh Empire - Ankh: Curse of the Scarab King on Nintendo DS. There isn't a lot of details ono the game for DS just yet, but here is the info from the announcment:
"If you enjoyed the previous Ankh titles then prepare yourself for more laugh-a-minute humour as you join Assil, the courageous young adventurer in a pocket sized journey through the dusty streets of Cairo.
Sun yourself in the sweltering Egyptian heat as you try to keep up with Assil, Thara, Pharaoh and Osiris: God of the Underworld in numerous exotic locations that include the beautiful bazaars and heady undergrowth of the Egyptian landscape. Solve the puzzles, guard the Ankh and become enthralled in the mysterious storyline whilst guiding Assil and his loveable friends along their way.
If you are brave enough to accompany Assil as he continues his quest for the Ankh, then look out for Ankh DS, set to hit stores in Q4 2007."
