Yep, they're making a new Tecmo Bowl for the DS. It's 2D. More info is here, or here:

- Customizable teams: players can select color, emblem, player names, city and abilities
- Super abilities: some players will have special abilities that allow them to pull off big plays
- Wi-Fi and local multiplayer: oh yeah, you can play a friend in the same room or somebody across the country
- Stylus control: no other details on this one, yet
- Over 32 different teams
- Cut scenes: huh?
- Customizable playbook: no idea on how much you can customize it, but it's a nice feature

Anyway, the week's DS releases, which I would refer to as "a whole lot of nothing" except there's not much there:

North America
- Brain Voyage
- Crosswords DS [just get New York Times Crosswords instead]
- Speed Racer

Europe
- Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney
- High School Musical 2: Work This Out!
- Speed Racer

Japan
- nothing

Australia
- Draglade
- Exit DS
- Princess on Ice

Ah, the crude Tecmo Bowl cutscene. So "bare bones" and yet so ahead of its time.

Oh yes, can't wait for this one to come out.

According to many game journalist sites, the XBLA version was almost completed by Rare. However Microsoft and Nintendo were not able to come to an agreement to release the game, so it was cancelled late in development. http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?
