Lordy lord, would I love Planescape on my DS.
I'd also like to derail the thread slightly to say that I still drool over the simple thought of a Diablo hack'n'slash game on the DS. It'd be a stylus tap-fest of heaven.
I don't think it has any hope of working on a DS.
This news is great though, a Bioware RPG could easily push me into the DS corner.
What wouldn't work, a DS hack n slash? It'd be perfect! You have the upper screen to cycle through map, skills, inventory, and the bottom screen as your action view. Whenever you'd need to muck around with the map/skill tree/inventory, you pause the games and you swap the top and bottom screens so that you could use the stylus for the non-action elements.
I'm pretty sure that the new DS Zelda game works very similarly.
And Kevin, I forgot/never knew that Bioware didn't make Planescape. I know it used the infinity engine, but I didn't realize that it was through a different group of developers. What kind of resolution does the DS pull anyway? 320?
