Kung Zhu for Nintendo DSLast month I let you know about the new Kung Zhu game for Nintendo DS that’s planned for release this fall (October 19, 2010). Today, Activision made the official announcement concerning the game and released a few screenshots.

Zhu Zhu Pets: Kung Zhu will feature all the familiar hamsters from both the Special Forces and Ninja Warriors tribes. You’ll find soldiers Stonewall, Sergeant Serge, Rock’O and Rivet and ninjas Yama, Azer, Drayko and Thorn. There may even be a few new hamsters from different tribes, too! You’ll be able to outfit your hamsters with battle gear and unleash them to fight in 35 levels with authentic sounds and motions.
