Lunar 3 Speculation

With the recent speculation of a brand new installment to the Lunar series, I wanted to post an update about the current thoughts of a Lunar 3.

Most feel that the game will take place after Lunar 2: Eternal Blue, possibly using the Blue Star as its setting. Others feel that Lunar 3 should take place before Lunar: The Silver Star/Silver Star Story and should tell the story of Dyne's adventures with Ghaleon, Lemia, and Mel. My opinion is that it will take place after Lunar 2 with a return of Zophar.

Either way, I have some solid news on the game. Recently people had been asking questions about the game, and Vic Ireland finally spoke out on the Working Designs official board. He mentioned that because of the Grandia projects, Lunar 3 had been unofficially delayed. While Lunar 3 is not even announced, and probably won't be announced for some time, Vic gave a estimate on the timeframe of Lunar 3's release, saying it was at least 2-3 years off(and that would be in Japan). With the game being so far away, both the Playstation 2 and Dreamcast will be a few years old. This makes one wonder what system the game will be released for. By that time, there may even be solid info on the newest generation of systems, considering the lifespan of newer systems is only a few years. I guess we all will just have to wait and see what Gamearts decides in the future about Lunar 3.

For those not familiar with the Lunar series, you can check out our Lunar 2 special. We also have reviews, previews and pics of the whole Lunar series all over the site! After all, we WERE once known as LunarNET!
