Brothers in Arms on Xbox 360

Starting this summer, Gearbox’s Brothers in Arms series will be available on Nintendo systems. Brothers in Arms DS and Brothers in Arms: Double Time, which debuts in the fall, will both allow players to relive World War II through epic, Band of Brothers-style battles.

Players will follow the stories of American paratrooper squads during the Normandy invasion, fighting through 31 levels of kraut baddies in Double Time and 16 in DS. All enemies will make use of an enhanced A.I. system so players can expect a challenge as no Brothers in Arms game is ever easy. Additionally, the DS version will also feature drivable vehicles like the Sherman Tank.

“Brothers In Arms really lends itself to both the Wii and DS interfaces. Imagine using the Wii Remote to give actual hand signals or aiming with the DS stylus from a covered position,” says Randy Pitchford, president of Gearbox Software.

Unique control schemes will accompany each game of course, making full use of the Wii Remote and DS' stylus.  The DS version will also sport a multiplayer mode supporting deathmatch and team deathmatch games.  It’s not known if Double Time will also have multiplayer, so check back for frequent updates as they become available.
