    So, Matt Casamassina finally has shown proof of the legendary Halo DS which was in development from a large name publisher and is sadly now canceled.

    Proof here:

    Now, people here may know that Im no fan of the Halo games, but I gotta say that I definitely would have bought this. It was looking pretty damn awesome for a DS game. Shame that some dumbass had to go and pull the plug on this! :(  Hopefully though somebody with sense comes in and decides to continue production. I really would love to see this.

    This would've been fantastic to play - I can already see, from the gameplay videos, that they had included an option on the touch screen to change your control type. Dual wielding looks like it was really nicely done too - I bet you just set whether you want dual or single wield on the touch screen, and go to town.

    Hoping they canceled Halo DS with plans to release the engine in a different game later...Marathon DS, maybe? ;)

    I want this, but I think Halo is best for it's online, and Halo's online doesn't mix with Nintendo Friend Codes

    Wow. Any speculation on who pulled the plug? Did MS stomp its feet?

    Its obviously using the same basic engine the Goldeneye DS game used. The voices for the guys getting shot, and even the font used for scoring is exactly the same.

    Still, one can dream that somebody might reignite it :(

    Neat! Would I have bought it? Hell no. Has that "crappy" vibe.

    I wouldve been all over that. I love playing on the Halo games, but I havent been able to since my buddy sold his X-box.

    Still, it proves the same as Metroid Prime Hunters did, the DS can handle 1st person shooters. Come on Timesplitters DS!

    (I can neither afford an X-box360, or the games for it)

    he said he was doing 2-player mode. notice that it jumped RIGHT into the game, without having to connect to the other DS? every time you do multiplayer on the DS, it has to actually connect to the other DS. the shortest I've ever seen it take was about 30 seconds. but in this, it's instant. that is not even remotely possible with the DS.

    and why does this say "cancelled"? it was a pitch, just a mod of goldeneye for DS. to be cancelled, it would actually have had to enter official development.
