Electronic Arts made good on its word first spoken last April by announcing that GoldenEye: Rogue Agent is now available for the Nintendo DS. The game was released on the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and GameCube last November, by EA LA, to fair reviews. The DS version was handled by EA Tiburon in Florida, which is the shop behind EA's Madden NFL franchise.

Rogue Agent puts a different spin on the traditional Bond games. As its name implies, gamers will get to twist their criminal moustaches as a Bond villain after getting the boot from the British Secret Service for recklessness. Famous Bond nemesis Auric Goldfinger takes players under his wing, outfits them with a superpowered robotic "GoldenEye," and teaches them how to be bad.

The first-person shooter features a single-player campaign with six missions, as well as wireless multiplayer support for up to eight players with just one copy of the game. The DS version features an exclusive virtual training mode that pits gamers against classic Bond villains so they can acquire unique weaponry upgrades.

GoldenEye: Rogue Agent is rated T for Teen and sells for $29.95. For more information on the game, take a look at GameSpot's previous coverage.
