Summoner Lands on the PS2
Volition's Summoner, a role playing game that is currently not available for any console, will soon be ported over to the Playstation 2. According to THQ, Summoner is slated for a fall release. While Summoner may not have as much graphic shock as Eternal Ring or EverGrace, the gameplay itself is deep enough to keep a person busy for a very long while. Looks like FromSoftware finally has some competition on the platform.
According to EB World, Time Stalkers(the renamed version of the japanese Dreamcast title, Climax Landers), will go on sale on February 21. Even though this isn't an official announcement of when Time Stalkers will be released, it makes sense given the previous time frame that was given. Time Stalkers combines several characters from the old Climax universe with a few new heroes exclusive to this adventure.
Lastly Lufia: Ruins Chaser, the new title in the ongoing series that has now found its way to the Gameboy Color, has met with a delay all the way to the third quarter of 2000. With the exception of Dragon Quest VII, this has to be one of the most delayed games of all time.
While Natsume continues to work on Lufia, this gives everyone a chance to try out their other incredibly unique RPG, Harvest Moon 64. What does this have to do with anything? Nothing at all, but it sure did make this paragraph long enough to round out this story, didn't it? :)
