 Last week XIDER Games announced their intentions to release the next Ankh title, Curse of the Scarab King, on the DS. The game will focus on the young Assil, an adventurer trying to save himself from a Mummy's deadly curse while traveling through ancient Egypt.    


Players will be able to enjoy the game's humor and action RPG gameplay through use of the DS touch screen and stylus. Over the course of the adventure players will encounter a variety of characters including the Pharaoh, the Pharaoh's beautiful daughter Thara, a gossiping Mummy called George, and a practical joker named Thor. Players will also need to watch out for a troublemaker named Seth and Osiris, God of the Underworld.    


Ankh: Curse of the Scarab King will be available for the DS this September.    


ANKH: CURSE OF THE SCARAB KING PROVIDES POCKET SIZED COLOURFUL, ADVENTURE ON THE DUSTY STREETS OF CAIRO    


POPULAR ACTION RPG GAME RETURNS ON NINTENDO DS    


XIDER Games is to release Ankh: Curse of the Scarab King on Nintendo DS. Following the success of the popular PC versions, this fun and colourful adventure will be available to play on DS in September 2008. Travel through ancient Egypt as young Assil, a bold young adventurer trying to save himself from a Mummy's deadly curse.    


Ever the party animal, Assil's wild ways lead him to break into a pyramid to enjoy an all night party with his friends. However, on disturbing a peaceful, sleeping Mummy he was immediately punished with a lethal curse. Enjoy classic gameplay using the stylus to help Assil discover the remedy and break the curse within 24 hours to avoid his fate.    


Feel the sand beneath your feet and the hot sun blazing down from above as your adventures begin in the mysterious land of ancient Egypt. Become immersed in the beautiful and vibrant Egyptian locations, travelling through bustling dusty cities, exotic bazaars and tropical dense undergrowth.    


Ankh: Curse of the Scarab King features many colourful and humorous characters, including the lovable delinquent Assil; the Pharaoh, who would rather party than govern; his beautiful daughter Thara; the gossip loving Mummy, George; and Thor, the practical joker. Not all the characters are good natured though; beware of Seth, who enjoys a good ruckus, and Osiris, God of the Underworld.    


Providing fun and excitement for players of all ages, Ankh: Curse of the Scarab King features many engaging puzzles that must be solved in order to progress. Enjoy and experience the vivid and enchanting surroundings on your adventure, but don't forget the task in hand, Assil's life must be saved before his time is up!

Action RPG? I always thought Ankh was an adventure (as in "point and click") game...

I believe typically they are, but according to the PR this one is an action RPG... Strange I know.
