EA's latest MySims game tasks players with not just customizing King Roland's magical kingdom, but rebuilding it too.
Electronic Arts recently announced the release of two new MySims games, one for Wii and one for DS. Both titled MySims Kingdom, the new games revolve around King Roland and his subjects as they try to revitalize the Kingdom.
The Wii version spans multiple mystical lands as the player must rebuild the Kingdom alongside King Roland, Princess Butter, Buddy, and Lyndsay. Players interact with the world by herding pigs, chopping wood, finding treasure, and more, gaining new materials all the while. Then they build up and customize their surroundings, providing new buildings, furniture, plants, and more to the people around them.
The DS version takes place in a distant land where Mayor Ellen, with the player's help, rebuilds the one-time vacation paradise and get King Roland to visit again. In addition to completing activities like kayaking and tennis, players are given the job of capturing essences and mixing them together to unlock new items and structures used to rebuild the land.
