Majesco Entertainment Company has announced Air Traffic Chaos for the Nintendo DS. The game is developed by Sonic Powered Co.

The Air Traffic Chaos game allows users to be in the shoe of an air traffic controller, whose job is to safely manage a myriad of takeoffs and landings at busy airports around the world.

The player uses the touchscreen to safely manage takeoffs, gate assignments and landings for all incoming and outgoing airport traffic for 14 different airlines in varying weather conditions.

Excellent performance will lead players to earn 16 different merit badges, including “Veteran ATC” and “ATC Legend.”

“Air Traffic Chaos means fun is taking off from Terminal A,” said Gui Karyo, Executive Vice President of Operations, Majesco. “The game’s frantic pace set against the backdrop of an already high-stress job will challenge fast-fingered Touch Screen gamers in an entirely new way.”

An in-depth tutorial teaches players the basics of managing the busy skies. There are three difficulty levels with five stages, each stage offering plenty of challenges to the players.

Players can also share their high scores with up to 7 friends. While Rumble Pack support makes the experience more realistic for aspiring air traffic controllers.

The Air Traffic Chaos for Nintendo DS is expected to be available in summer 2008. no pricing details have been released.
