The game bore a striking resemblance to Nintendo's 1985 NES classic Super Mario Bros., with Nintendo legal action allegedly forcing Giana's quick removal from retailers.
Along with "all the great features of the original home computer version," the DS release will sport some new functionality, such as microphone and touch screen use.
Developed by Spellbound Entertainment and Bitfield, The Great Giana Sisters is due for a June 2009 release in Europe. North American release plans have not been detailed.
So that's what that Machinae Supremacy song is named after...
Its a cover of the main theme iirc.
Hrm do you know anywhere that I can hear the GGS theme song?
