During the final day of Comic Con, Rare held a Viva Piñata
panel discussion and made a surpeise announcement that Viva Piñata
will be heading to the Nintendo DS. So, it looks like Shane Kim
's talk of bringing the franchise to the DS making sense ended up being one of those sly hints of things to come. Viva Piñata
on the DS is being developed by Rare and will be very similar to its lovably fun Xbox 360 version featuring the same core gameplay elements. Nothing more about the DS version was mentioned other than it'll be teh awesomeness, but we'd like to hear when the DS version will hit retail, if it'll incorporate the DS's wireless features and how pretty it is.
So, there you have it fanboys. Viva Piñata
will be on the Nintendo DS and Horstachio will have a new condo to call home. Touch screen and all!
