Luminous Arc
« on: August 28, 2006, 06:57:27 am »
Well, coming out this fall I think it deserves it's own topic  ;D

It's an SRPG for the Nintendo DS with... just read the details below.

Famitsu scans:


First screenshots:
 

Some details:

- SRPG developed by Image Epoch (http://imageepoch.co.jp)
- Music and sound production by Yasunori Mitsuda
- Character design by Shibano Kaito (http://kr3.oops.jp/)
- Published by Marvelous, 70% complete
- Standard fantasy SRPG with ADV parts where characters talk, and then SLG parts where you fight the battles
- Touchpen control can be set to be right or left handed
- SLG parts use the standard top down view
- Deathblows can be used when you fill up the Drive Guage
- Characters all seem to have voices, but no voice actors have been mentioned

So Mitsuda decided to do some VG music work again. Let's ope this turn out better then Deep Labyrinth  :-\

The latest news can always be found at http://www.mmv-i.net/game/ds/Luminous/
Aside from a character and a story section it also has a developers blog. Anyone care to translate?  ;)

Ah well, looking forward to this  :)

Btw, website majorly updated. Also now has a very nice piano piece as background music... definitely reminded me of Mistuda's work, could be by him  :)

Mitsuda is doing the music. Thanks for the info. Buying this now.
Damn it, I cannot afford more games coming out. I need all new games to suck.
