Anyone read Japanese?

The latest issue of Japanese videogame magazine Famistu carries an interesting news story regarding the next instalment of the Sim City franchise.

Dubbed Sim City DS 2, the game appears to be heavily tailored towards younger gamers with some cute looking townspeople not a million miles away from those seen in MySims.

Not much else is known about the game as we don’t speak Japanese here at NintendoLife, but judging from the magazine scan it would seem this particular Sim City title will take place in several different time periods, which could prove to be very interesting.
