German Publisher Confirms Black&White, Otto and Sims
11:35 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

An IMG reader from overseas has some interesting news for those of you in Western Europe -- Application Systems of Germany has updated their web site with the details that they are working on localized versions of Black and White, Pangea Software's title in development Otto Matic, and a German version of The Sims expansion packs based the ports already published by Aspyr Media.

All the pages are in German, of course, but rough Altavista translations have made it clear that most of the information on these pages is just the standard details previously released for each title. Two items of note: The page on Lionhead's god-game Black and White features the logo of Feral, long suspected to be the future publisher of this title but never officially confirmed. Also, the Sims page indicates that not only will a German version of The Sims be published, but also the two expansion packs as well. The page lists Black and White as due for Fall, though this is doubtful considering the progress report we noted earlier today in news.

Our thanks to "Stephan" for pointing out these updates, which were revealed in a chat-room conversation. This publisher is also working on versions of Tomb Raider Chronicles, Sheep, Summoner, Monkey Island 3, Tony Hawk II and Alice.
