Majesty 2: Pocket Kingdom Announced for Nintendo DSiWare™

NEW YORK– June 17, 2010– Paradox Interactive is proud to announce that the much-loved fantasy kingdom building series Majesty, is set to make its handheld debut on Nintendo DSiWare TM this year as Majesty 2: Pocket Kingdom. The game is set to release in autumn 2010.

Developed by KranX Productions, Majesty 2: Pocket Kingdom is a real-time strategy game loosely based on the PC version of Majesty 2 but featuring a completely original and brand new campaign. Set in the mythical realm of Ardania, you begin as the ruler of a solitary town which is under attack by creatures from a nearby forest. Your mission is to defeat them, rebuild the town, and gradually increase your influence over the land until you are ruler of the entire kingdom. Aiding you in your quest (or obstructing you, depending on your point of view), are your‘loyal’ and somewhat obnoxious subordinates who have their own minds about how things should be done.

FEATURES:

    <*>Real-Time Strategy with indirect control– your heroes have a will of their own! Place a high enough reward as incentive however, and they will go hunting monsters or discovering new lands at your command <*>12 mission campaign <*>Cast magic spells using the Nintendo DS stylus
