Swords & Soldiers Screenshots Depict Toonish RTS

Dutch studio Ronimo Games has announced Swords & Soldiers, a side-view RTS title bound for the Nintendo Wii's WiiWare downloadable gaming platform. Alongside the announcement were a trio of screenshots showing off the game's look and feel.

The title comes by way of the original developers of de Blob, a property later purchased by publisher THQ. Ronimo co-founder Fabian Akker cited de Blob as a strong foundation for the company's formation.

"de Blob was the eye opener for us, that we can make cool games and function as a good team," Akker said in a press release. "The game definitely gave us the opportunity to start our own company. We always dreamed of designing an RTS and when WiiWare came out we immediately figured that this was our chance."

Swords & Soldiers allows players to take control of one of three factions battling it out for the powers of the gods. In addition to a single player campaign, Swords & Soldiers also supports competitive splitscreen multiplayer and several other game modes.

The game is currently scheduled to arrive on the Wii's digital storefront this fall.

      Holy crap I haven't thought about that game in years! That was easily the best use of the SNES mouse.
