The latest issue of Japanese video game magazine Famitsu has revealed the first information on a second SimCity title for the Nintendo DS.

In development at EA Japan, the new title will follow a similar premise to Civilization, enabling players to build settlements through the ages, beginning with the humble caveman.

The first SimCity title for DS was released last summer and we felt it was an excellent handheld version of the classic franchise, despite a few shortcomings. Hopefully we'll hear news of a European release for the second title shortly.
