It’s no secret that BioWare is making their first foray into the handheld market with the upcoming release of Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood for the DS, due out at the end of September. The company is best known for their epic RPG’s for both PC and consoles, such as Neverwinter Nights, Baldur’s Gate and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.
What you may not know is that the Sonic title may open the gates for BioWare to move more of their big name franchises over to the DS as well, namely Jade Empire, Dragon Age and Mass Effect. This is by no means an announcement of upcoming games, but Miles Holmes (lead designer for Sonic Chronicles) has indicated that if their first attempt sells well, they may make the move to supplement their major console and PC titles with handheld versions.
We have a lot of big plans for Mass Effect. Having a DS version would be an awesome way to keep interest alive and keep it going in addition to the next one [Mass Effect 2],” said Holmes.
With all of the huge RPG titles that BioWare has under their belt, which would you like to see make the jump to handheld?
