Shortly prior to the release of 10TACLE STUDIOS' round-based strategy-title Panzer Tactics DS in April 2007, the mobile version will be released worldwide. Developer HandyGames thereby has focussed on a highly detailed conversion of the popular handheld-version.
"We appreciate the close cooperation with 10TACLE STUDIOS very much and we all are sure that both versions, the mobile as well as the NDS version, will set the benchmark very high in the sector of strategic games.", says Markus Kassulke, CEO of HandyGames.
"With the brand Panzer Tactics, we want to revive the popular genre of round-based strategy games with fresh elements and establish it on new platforms. These include the NDS as well as the mobile phone! With HandyGames, we have found an expert production partner who helps us greatly with the realization of this strategy.", says Chris Schmitz, Executive Producer, 10TACLE STUDIOS AG.
