Call of Duty Black Ops coming to the Nintendo DS in vaguely similar to console form

We all love Call of Duty, and we all love playing it. If only there was some way to take the awesomeness of Call of Duty: Black Ops with us on some sort of handheld device. What’s that, developer n-Space? We can?

“Call of Duty: Black Ops for the Nintendo DS is going to take the handheld Call of Duty experience to a new level,” Dan O’Leary, n-Space Studio Head said in a prepared statement that doesn't sound at all like puffed-up ad copy. “From taking the controls of an attack helicopter to flying an experimental stealth fighter jet, players will have a wealth of new features to [utilize].”

Call of Duty: Black Ops for the DS will also feature 6 player multiplayer (complete with a perk system), and 2 player co-op, as well as arcade and challenge modes.

The developer promises that Co-op mode will boast a campaign that is totally separate from the single player campaign, and offers many more opportunities for players to utilize specific weapons in single player; specifically sniper rifles and shotguns.

With CoD:BODS be able to buck the hand cramping interface or the performance issues of the other Call of Duty titles on the DS? n-Space feels confident that it will. In addiction to the classic stylus aiming controls, the developer is adding an alternate button-only interface to those who found the original interface uncomfortable.

Call of Duty: Black Ops for the DS will release November 9th, 2010.

    reCAPTCHA: problem sardine This might be the most accurate description we will ever see. The essence of Call of Duty will never be captured in devices as big as a sardine can. There's the problem. That is all.

    The COD ds games are actually very fun. Sure they aren't on the same level as the console versions but they are still fun portable diversions.

    In addition maybe? Rather than in addiction? *spell check probably did this. Having not played other FPS games on the DS I am wondering how well the controls would work although the multiplayer does sound interesting.
