Popular XBLA title goes mobile

Just last week, Microsoft revealed six new games that would be coming to the Windows Phone in the near future. Among those games was http://www.trueachievements.com/Carcassonne-WP-xbox-360.htm, the board game-turned-XBLA title.

Now, we have some details and a few screens to show you. A couple of these screens were posted before, but we're reposting them so you can enlarge them if you'd like.

Also, here's a list of features that will be found in the game:

• Includes the official expansion “The River II”
• Local and online multiplayer mode
• Clever AI opponents with individual strategies
• Expansive tutorial for beginners
• XBOX Live Achievements and Leaderboards
Caracssonne will be released later this year.

wonder how multiplayer will work? If it is all live, or if it is log in - take a turn - log out.

Nice! I remember playing this game years ago when they gave it away for free on the marketplace hopefully this is as easy as the xbla version.

Should be a day one buy for me ... wish it was free like the XBLA version, but it will probably be $2.99. Hoping for less, but expecting more.

The xbla game was alright. I hope this one differentiates itself well enough to make it play good and stay carcasonne but different enough so it isn't exactly like the xbla title. The screens seem promising right now, and online multiplayer is a huge plus. Definitely a maybe only tho, as I never play the xbla game anymore, just a bit boring now. The 2 last achievements were a bit of a grind too lol

This is going to be a great fit for the WP7. The first ever day one purchase for me.

Too bad Carcassonne isn't on Android, I would buy it day one. Windows Phone has some interesting games, too bad it has weak apps otherwise.

was tempted by the xbla version but i'd rather play it on the phone. It all comes down to the price I guess
