Orcs & Elves DS goes gold, gets pre-order stylus wand thingy

When John Carmack isn’t building rocket ships or modifying cars into planes, he’s making some decent games with id Software and Fountainhead Entertainment. Once home to cell phones, Carmack’s Orcs & Elves is now coming to the Nintendo DS … and it’s gone gold!

The DS game features a new 3D engine, full 3D sound, new monsters, and new levels. Pre-order the game at certain retailers, and you’ll get yourself a limited edition wand stylus, which you can use to cast spells. But only in the game while using the Nintendo DS touch screen; chill out, Potter.

Orcs & Elves will be available in stores on November 16.
