It wasn't enough that Age of Mythology sold over a million copies. Now THQ aims to bring the popular rts to the Nintendo DS.

Gameplay is set to feature the factions from the original Age of Mythology -the Greeks, Norse, and Egyptians- while also incorporating traditional mythical heroes. Multiplayer capabilities are also said to be in the works. While it's hard to imagine the popular rts game in a turn-based setting, the 2006 port of Age of Kings to the DS generally received positive reviews. The same developer, Blackbone, is being used.
