New Arc the Lad III Gameplay Info

Arc the Lad is one of those RPG series that never found its way unto the U.S. Playstation. The first game was released too early in the system's life, before RPGs were popular here, and the sequel, while rumored to be released here, never made it either. Chances are that Arc the Lad III will meet a similar fate.

However, those who plan on importing this title will find some new features thrown into the gameplay. The most obvious addition is the new battle card system. In Arc the Lad III there are a couple of characters called cardists. These characters have the ability to use battle cards, which can capture monsters that can later be summoned and unleashed on future foes. These characters can only carry 5 cards at a time though. Remaining cards are stored in a card house, where they can be organized and exchanged with other players.

Monsters will also now be encountered in the map mode, as well as dungeons. Characters who will participate in battle can be chosen beforehand, and the order of the characters will vary depending on their speed.

Those who played the first two prequels will also be glad to hear that many of the old cast have returned for this game.

Arc the Lad III should be released on October 28.
