Orphen Preview Plus Media

With PlayStation 2's launch a mere nine days away, we look at Orphen: Scion of Sorcery, one of the RPGs that shall help usher this console's American debut. Shiguma gives us a taste of what we can expect from Kadokawa Shoten's latest creation in his preview:

"Orphen: Scion of Sorcery, known as Sorcerous Stabber Orphen in Japan, is an RPG based on a popular anime series of the same title. While the game has been available in the Land of the Rising Sun for some time now, it's currently slated as a domestic PlayStation 2 launch title, one of the first RPGs on the system. Utilizing the DVD-ROM format, it should deliver a truly awesome experience. The game's fantasy elements, deep story and action-oriented gameplay make it a must-play PS2 game."

The entire preview can be found here.

For a better look at this game, we have 24 screen shots, 9 pieces of artwork, 3 wallpaper designs, and the U.S. packaging. To provide a quick audio sampling, we have 2 real audio clips. One is the opening and the other is the ending song.

According to Activison, Orphen: Scion of Sorcery will ship on October 24th. However, given the fact that a few PS2 launch titles have already begun to trickle into stores, it's likely that it could arrive sooner.
