Activision has announced that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be coming to the Nintendo DS this fall. The game is called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2: Mobilised and the game is so big it has two colon's in the title.
The game is set to feature building to building combat, UAV control, tank control and the ability to man the AC-130 gunship. It's unclear if the game has co-op play, but apparently the six player multiplayer mode was so awesome they named it twice in the press release.
We only mention the game because of this:
...as well as the brand new Survival Mode, giving players a variety of weapons to hold off waves of oncoming enemy forces
Sounds a lot like the ever popular growing Horde-style modes we are seeing in games. Ones that are traditionally co-op. We'll be keeping an eye on this one and let you know as soon as we have official word on the co-op mode.
