Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Mobilized uncovered for DS

If this surprises you, then you’re either a moron or you’ve never heard of evil publisher Activision. It has today been revealed that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Mobilized is heading to the DS as part of Activision’s plan to saturate the market with everything released everywhere. The game also uses too many colons for my liking.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Mobilized will bring the epic Call of Duty intensity of Modern Warfare to Nintendo DS fans through a unique storyline and companion narrative,” claims Activision, evilly. “The title will also serve up a bevy of features, including a six-player online multiplayer mode that allows friends to host their own server, as well as the brand new Survival Mode, giving players a variety of weapons to hold off waves of oncoming enemy forces and an expanded six-player online multiplayer mode. Also, Arcade Mode will allow gamers to replay the game’s single-player with a time limit and running score, with extra points awarded for specific achievements.”

The last time I tried to play an FPS on the DS, it was that Metroid Prime one. I swiftly concluded that I needed at least two extra hands in order to play it comfortably, and gave up. Still, I’m all for second chances, so I might check this out. Never did try the first one. 

Hit the jump for the full press release.
