Fullmetal Alchemist DS-bound

Square Enix's anime action franchise reportedly debuting on the DS this summer.


Launched in 2003, Square Enix's manga and anime series, Fullmetal Alchemist, has already been turned into titles for the PlayStation 2 and Game Boy Advance. DS owners don't fret--it appears that the series is coming to Nintendo's new portable this summer.

According to reports from early purchasers of Square Enix's monthly Shonen Gangan magazine, a new Fullmetal Alchemist action game will be coming to the dual-screen handheld this summer. Details on the new title are unknown, but as was the case with the past two releases on the GBA, the game will be created under license by Bandai.

In the Full Metal Alchemist universe, a select group of powerful people, known as Alchemists, have the ability to manipulate objects and transform them into new items. GameSpot will have more on the title as details are released.
