Now, CDV is preparing to bring it's City Life franchise to the Nintendo DS, albeit with several changes. First, since the game is being ported to the tiny DS hardware, the graphics have undergone a significant overhaul. The new title will feature a newer, kid-friendly look to it that seems more in line with your average DS title.
Despite the weaker hardware, City Life DS still allows the player to zoom in and out to various levels, and view the city any way they please, right down to a detailed street level. The game will feature over 150 different structures upon which to populate your city, including special buildings like the mayor's mansion.
