Dragon Quest VIII

Ενώ τα ιαπωνικά RPGs έχουν συνδεθεί, στη συνείδηση πολλών gamers, με τα Final Fantasy, η σειρά Dragon Quest, γνωστότερη και πιο επιτυχημένη στην Ιαπωνία, συνεχίζει την πορεία της, κρατώντας τα στοιχεία, που την ξεχωρίζουν, δίχως να μπλέκεται με «μοντερνισμούς» και «καινοτομίες».

Square-Enix worried about DS Lite supplies!

Posted by evans στο Δευτέρα, 26 Ιουνίου, 2006

During a recent shareholder meeting, Square-Enix announced concern over the supplies of DS and DS Lite. Their reason for being concerned? They do not want supplies of the DS or DS Lite to run out when they are coming close to the launch of Final Fantasy III. They believe that if there are significant system shortages, it will slow down the sales of FF III, a title they are very excited to launch, and believe will have strong sales on the portable. Nintendo has reassured Square-Enix that they are shipping as many units as possible, working to meet the 2 million units supplied each month during the summer period.

Valkyrie Profile Lenneth preview!

Valkyrie Profile Lenneth

It's been six years since Enix's original Valkyrie Profile hit the US and introduced players to its rich world based on Norse mythology. You played as Lenneth, a valkyrie (who were handmaidens to Norse god Odin and conducted the souls of the dead to Valhalla) tasked with helping defend the home of the gods in a time of unrest by raising an army of souls to fight the forces of evil. The gameplay featured a mix of the expected role-playing game elements–2D graphics, real-time action, turn-based combat, and platforming–but wound up offering a unique experience that stood out from its contemporaries at the time. The polished title found a loyal audience in the States, but due to a modest production run, didn't sell through the roof and joined the ranks of PlayStation titles such as SquareSoft's Final Fantasy Tactics as being almost impossible to get hold of. Fast forward to today and Square Enix's upcoming Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth, a PlayStation Portable conversion of an old-school gem that promises to give players a second chance to experience the rich adventure. While we already checked out the import that hit Japan earlier this year, we've since been able to land a preview of the US version of the game.
