Don't let him near your DS.

Legacy Interactive and Universal Pictures Digital Platforms Group have joined forces to bring DS owners the chance to play everybody's favourite cantankerous physician (that's the only way House can be described: it's the law) with their upcoming game House, M.D., announced today.

The Legacy Interactive press release goes like this:

Legacy is transforming the successful medical mystery series House M.D., into a compelling game for both the PC and Nintendo DS™ where players make life and death decisions in the role of their favorite physicians from Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital. In the game, players will take turns stepping into the shoes of the skillful staff of the Diagnostic Medicine department which includes Dr. Taub, Dr. Hadley (AKA Thirteen) and, of course, the maverick medical genius himself, Dr. Gregory House. Players are part of the diagnostic team that attempts to diagnose and treat a variety of patients with complex illnesses. The game consists of five unique cases that represent the rare and fascinating types of maladies that viewers have come to expect from the popular medical drama.

No screenshots or videos yet, but it's early days yet. Rumours the game will require a walking cane add-on are not yet confirmed.
