Last Rebellion Enters 2010 RPG Fray
It was a fairly dry year for RPGs but with the role-playing lineup scheduled for 2010, fans of the genre should be overloaded with potential goodness.
We've already got White Knight Chronicles, Final Fantasy XIII, Resonance of Fate and Star Ocean: The Last Hope International coming to the PlayStation 3 and now, we can add another exclusive RPG for Q1 2010: Last Rebellion. According to PlayStation LifeStyle, NIS America has just given the game an estimated February 2010 launch date in North America. You'll be looking at a unique combat mechanic that lets you control two main characters and slash at various parts of an enemy's body, plus a mature storyline with presumably older characters (NIS is often known for the "kiddie"-like RPGs, with teenagers and kids as characters). The interesting part about this is February for the US is only about a month after it releases in Japan...how the localization process goes so quickly for these guys and so much slower for other studios is a mystery. White Knight Chronicles has been out for how long in Japan? Well, long enough to know Level 5 is already planning a sequel. Of course, this only means yet another RPG will have to be taken into consideration early next year, so RPG followers will have their hands full.
Maybe NIS will give us a demo on the PSN some time in January. We'd like to get a better idea of how this one is going to play.
