Lots of Lunar News!
First off, I want to apologize. I would have had this up earlier today, but I have been away from my computer quite a bit due to personal reasons over the past week. Anyways, on to the update.
Working Designs officially announced the Lunar SSSC demo that we have reported on in the past. In case you have missed our past reports, WD is releasing a demo that should be available in early April for those that either pre-purchase Lunar SSSC from Electronic Boutique, Software Etc., Babbages or Working Designs themselves. For those, like myself, who have local EB stores saying they know nothing about the demo, Working Designs states to tell the employee to look under "premiums". Next week WD will announce information about direct orders from the company itself.
The demo should be available in the first week of April, as it is in the final stage of testing at Sony, and is scheduled to be shipped for manufacturing on the 29th of March. Save data from the demo will be compatible with the final product, so those worried about having to repeat what was in the demo need not worry. The game contains 4-6 hours of gameplay, containing 7 anime scenes. It also ends with a teaser video of the rest of the game. I'm not certain but I think I remember Vic mentioning on the Working Designs website message board that the game would play up to the VERY impressive Boat Song from Saith to Meribia(for those that are familiar with the Sega CD Lunar TSS). Don't qoute me on that though. This will be one of the top 3(if not the very top) RPGs of this year. Below are pictures of the demo CD packaging!
