, the newest member of the MySims brand, is being stealthily shipped to your local stores as we speak. Set to release next week on September 29th, MySims Agents
will be available on Nintendo Wii and DS.
You'll play an agent solving mysteries in an adventure game that challenges you to stop a sinister plot before an entire city is destroyed by Morcubus, evil CEO of MorcuCorp. You'll recruit different Sims with different skill sets, and decide how best to put them to use, whether lockpicking, following footprints, hacking computers, and more. You'll return from missions with goodies you can use to personalize your five-story agent headquarters.
"We are thrilled to bring a new take on the original MySims franchise to players with MySims Agents,” said Tim LeTourneau, General Manager of MySims. “MySims Agents appeals to gamers of all ages—whether you enjoy a good adventure or a challenging mystery to solve—the game lends itself to an experience the whole family can enjoy whether they hold the Wii-mote or are there to help.”
The real mystery here is how a kids' title can look so cool. Just goes to show that we need to keep an open mind as gamers about different genres--I actually really enjoyed MySims Racing, and I'll probably enjoy this too. Fun is fun.

Jump aboard a private jet to reach an ancient temple, a spooky mansion, a seedy industrial section of the city, a sunshine filled beach boardwalk, or an icy mountaintop chalet. Each clue you uncover will lead you closer to the sinister Morcubus. Return from their adventures with cool treasures that can be used to construct and customize your five story headquarters.
