Great RPG's Coming to the DS This Year!
« on: July 27, 2006, 10:05:37 pm »
Has anyone else noticed there are lots of great RPG's coming to the DS? Here's a few that have caught my attention:

Final Fantasy III (11/06)- Looks to be a great addition to the Final Fantasy series. New 3D graphics and gameplay looks great.- http://www.gamespot.com/ds/rpg/finalfantasyiii/index.html

Contact (9/19/06)- From the maker of Killer7. Looks great. Rumor is that Contact 2 is being developed for DS or Wii as well, according to the games creator.- http://www.gamespot.com/ds/rpg/contact/index.html

Children of Mana
(10/30/06)- Looking like another great RPG by Square Enix. The most recent issue of Nintendo Power has a great preview on it.- http://www.gamespot.com/ds/rpg/childrenofmana/index.html

Deep Labyrinth (8/15/06)- This game lookes like an amazing RPG for the DS. It has a great story, and Oblivion-like gameplay. The touch screen looks to really enhance the gameplay as well. Plus, it's out in less than 3 weeks!- http://www.gamespot.com/ds/rpg/deeplabyrinth/index.html

Perhaps the best part is that all of these are coming out within the next 3-4 months. Definently keep an eye on these.

What about Tales of the Tempest? Is that this year or 07'?

The only one I'm interested in is Final Fantasy III, and I don't see it being released this year.

These all interest me. Deep Labyrinth is too ... ambiguous at this point to get really excited about. But you never know...

Can't wait to see the next installment from Squenix. 
Also, the Contact graphics kind of remind me of Mother (not my mum; the game)
