Much-loved publishers Codemasters have announced that Overlord is to have new games on the Wii and DS.
Overlord started life on the Xbox 360 last year and was generally well received, reviewers likened it to Pikmin. The game's director Lennart Sas spoke:
"We used Pikmin as inspiration, of course - but also games such as Sacrifice; which involved a central character who controls hordes of followers. However, I feel our core mechanics and setting are substantially different and the games differ much more than typical shooters strategy titles. So I say to anyone claiming Overlord is a Pikmin clone - check yourself before you wreck yourself, fool".
That last line may have been tampered with. The DS handheld version of Overlord will be called "Overlord Minions", said to be more of an action-puzzle spinoff. Neither game is expected until 2009.
