Ubisoft has a new game coming out for the DS, based on Heroes of Might & Magic. Kinda sorta. It has puzzles.

In fact, the combats in this HOMM will be turn-based puzzles. I don’t know how you can pull off that sort of thing in a strategy game. After all, you’re also running an army. “Put up that blade, Orc! I have to finish this magic square first!”

Should you tire of fighting AI, the game will also have a two-player competitive mode. The game is due out in August 2009, which, when you think of it, isn’t that far off (where is this year going?).

So if you have a DS, you may want to check this out for future reference:
