Quake Arena, possibly coming to a DS near you

Quake Arena, the game that originally released in 1999, but than re-released a couple of times after 1999, is reportedly heading to the DS.

The news comes from John Carmack, the Director at id Software, at ComicCon 2007, where he said that the controls will not be touch-based “like Metroid Prime Hunters” is. He wishes all shooting and movement and such done with the D-Pad and other buttons. There’s no word as to whether or not the game will take advantage of Nintendo’s Wi-Fi Connection service.

However, Carmack did say that the game would be a concept game. One that will probably not release to the public, it’s just id Software testing the DS. Hopefully if they like it they might release it to stores.
