EA takes their tiny blocked-headed MySims and thrusts them deep into the heart of a sinister plot that could determine the fate of an entire city in MySims Agents for the Nintendo Wii and DS.
The MySims are everywhere now. They're partying, racing, defending fantasy kingdoms, and now taking on the role of secret agents embroiled in a web of mystery and intrigue. In the Wii version, players recruit a dream team of MySims investigators in order to foil the sinister plot of Morcubus, lord of the criminal underworld. In the DS version, players are helping the Mayor prevent the theft of an ancient artifact by a notorious thief. Both games feature tons of problem solving, clue analyzing, and computer hacking, all in convenient mini-game format.
"We're thrilled to bring you MySims Agents, the next game from MySims, something completely different than any MySims game before," said Tim LeTourneau, General Manager of the MySims franchise. "Its mystery-meets-adventure theme allows players to hone their problem-solving skills while still enjoying all of the beloved MySims charm; characters, customisation and humour."
So basically, EA is trying to turn the MySims brand into their own personal Lego property, only without the Lego. Cute little customizable block people for the win. I eagerly await the announcement of MySims Batman.
MySims Agents is scheduled for release this fall.
