Wooo!  Atlus is localizing Contact for the DS.  It's by the makers of Killer 7.  In related news  Atlus is also localizing Super Robot Taisen: Original Generation for the GBA.  Anyways, back to Contact:


Here is a link to IGN's little write up and some pictures.  http://ds.ign.com/objects/761/761628.html

For those of you too lazy to click the link here is what is written there:

A fantasy RPG for the DS. The story of Contact begins when an elderly professor, making use of a strange item called "element," crash lands his space ship on a strange planet, and with the elements now scattered across the planet, he can no longer get his ship off the ground. So, the professor enlists the help of a young local boy called Cherry in collecting the elements, as helping the professor is the only way that Cherry will be able to get home.

Cherry can stick multiple seals to himself, resulting in added powers. Seals can also be used to attack enemies who get in the way of your travels. Come across an elemental, and you'll want to use a seal to suck it up. Also, a costume system earns Cherry new skills with seven outfits (a fisherman, a cook, a pilot, etc.) along the way. Cherry also has magic and weapon-based skills which you also gather as you work through the game.


Here is the official press release:

I've seen some English screenshots of this game and I have to say it looks really great.  It looks very quirky and fun.  But I still can't get over how similar the scientist looks to Dr. Andonuts from Earthbound!
