Paradox Interactive is working with Pocket PC Studios to adapt Europa Universalis II to handheld formats including Nintendo DS, according to a release on the developer's website, and will release the adaptation later this year.

"Europa Universalis II is one of our most appreciated titles. As a leading force in the pocket PC entertainment business, Pocket PC Studios are the perfect partners to continue its legacy on a new platform," said Fredrik Lindgren, VP of sales and marketing for Paradox. "This additional accessibility is something that will suit the current fan base as well as attract new curious gamers."

The game involves leading a nation of the player's choice to world supremacy over a timespan of more than 400 years (1419-1820) by directing domestic and foreign policies, engaging in religious struggles and setting up expeditions to lay claim to the New World, according to Paradox.

Europa Universalis 2, Victoria and Hearts of Iron 2 are quite frankly the best games I've ever played...

They (and the prequels - I started way back when EU 1 was released) have sucked up more time than any other games, and that includes Civ 1/2 (and to a lesser extent 3)...*

The best location to read about them is the excellent official Paradox Entertainment forums....

*To clarify, Civ 1/2 where my previous holders of most played games on any format...

I've always fancied playing the EU games (especially after Lum the Mad raved about them ). But I'm wondering, is the DS the ideal platform for this game or is the PC better? How suited is it to the DS hardware? If its a perfect match then I just might be excited about this.
