Ubisoft isn't saying much about the DS game, but it'll obviously use the stylus to allow you a similar level of control to that of the PC original. Other details are sparse, but we do know that you'll get to settle down as Romans, Vikings, Nubians or Asians, and there'll be campaign and Free Mode.

Not due for release until Q4 2006, we've got a few months to wait before we get our Settlers fix on the DS, but you can always try out the demo for the swanky 3D Settlers II remake that's just hit reputable download sites.
