Another day at Nintendo Life HQ

The Sims is quite popular, apparently. Popular enough for Electronic Arts to bring the nonsense-speaking humanoids back to Wii and DS in the form of The Sims 3.

Both consoles will receive bespoke versions of the virtual life simulator, each with its own modes, challenges and objectives. The Wii version is set to include the series' first ever multiplayer mode, pitting players against each other in so-called "Life Moment" challenges, whereas the DS release will let players create their own houses using the stylus and touchscreen.

Here's two trailers to get your excitement meter suitably high.
