Today, Two Tribes and Team17 announce they have teamed up for the creation of Worms: Open Warfare 2 for Nintendo DS. The game, which has been released on the 31st of August, is the latest entry into the popular Worms franchise.
Early 2006, Team17 approached Two Tribes to collaborate on the creation of a new Worms title for Nintendo DS. One year on, Worms: Open Warfare 2 has been completed. The game offers Nintendo DS owners countless hours of turn-based battle action. It is chockfull of features, including double screen gameplay, tons of customization options and full wireless support including online play.
We are very pleased with how the game turned out., says Collin van Ginkel, Creative Director at Two Tribes. After a year of hard work, we really enjoy playing against Worms players from all over the world!
Martijn Reuvers, Managing Director at Two Tribes, continues: We have been huge fans of the Worms franchise since the very first game was released back in 1994 and strongly felt it was our mission to provide the best possible Worms experience for Nintendo DS owners. We are confident that players will have a blast playing this game. Literally.
Martyn Brown, Studio Director at Team17 agrees: We believe that the quality of the title, as shown in glowing reviews at major sites like IGN.com, 1UP.com and GamePro.com, proves that in a games industry flooded with disappointing sequels, there are still companies striving for perfection where possible ? and this time, alongside a fine PSP edition, they’ve helped us deliver a simply fantastic DS version ? the very reason why we believed in them in the first place.
The cooperation between the two companies will not end here though. It’s been a real pleasure for Team17 to work with Two Tribes on the recent ‘Worms Open Warfare 2’ and we would expect our co-development relationship to continue to blossom over the coming years on further titles., Brown continues. It’s rare to find an external team with so much commitment to the cause and who are real fans of the game you’re trying to make ? rarer still to strike a great working partnership with a great set of people.
Worms: Open Warfare 2 is now available at your local store and at various online stores.
