"They've done the handheld versions of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Modern Warfare 2, Black Ops, and World at War, among many other DS games.
The DS version is in expert hands."— Activision social media manager, Dan Amrich
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3: Defiance is the Nintendo DS version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
It was developed by n-Space, and released on November 8, 2011.
It serves as the prequel to Modern Warfare 3.
Defiance takes place in the two or three days leading up to the console version, around the same time as the final missions of MW2.
Defiance opens in Russian-occupied Alaska. A team of National Guard and British special forces are on a mission to claim vital intelligence and defend the oil pipes.
The game then moves to Nevada, near the Hoover Dam, where a different team of National Guard are defending civilian extraction.
The final theater of the game is Baltimore, Maryland. In an airport, an AC-130 codenamed "Hunter" provides cover for a British ground team as they hunt down important Russian personnel.
