Crime spree to hit DS

DS has made stars out of lawyers and doctors recently with Phoenix Wright and Trauma Center, but soon the Nintendo handheld will be demonstrating the work of a much less respectable professional in Rousseau the Thief.

The Namco-developed game has a similar anime style to Phoenix Wright and Trauma Center, and makes similarly innovative use of the stylus and the touch-screen; in order to keep Rousseau hidden from the law, gamers will have to draw patterns on his face in order to make him blend in with the background.

So as long as Rousseau stands in front of plain brickwork he should be fine, but if he attempts to blend in with something a little more complicated, like a map of Norway, he might be in trouble.

Rousseau the Thief will be released for DS, with a UK release date to be announced.
