Oregon Trail coming to DSiWare

(Insert witty comment about dysentery here).

The iPhone remake of The Oregon Trail is coming to DSiWare, the ESRB has revealed today with one of its bean-spilling ratings. The original game is fondly remembered by many gamers who learned about the pioneer way of life thanks to the venerable old title. 

“Bears may attack, snakes can bite, robbers will loot, and diseases do come (“You have died of . . .”), but the hardened traveler is expected to overcome these unfavorable events to reach the promised Pacific Northwest,” explains the ESRB. “If disease or injury is left untreated, family members will fall to the ground and die, leaving headstone icons in their wake.”

I like it when DSiWare gets something vaguely interesting.
