SoftMax is working on a Dreamcast version of a Korean PC RPG, Rhapsody of Zephyr. The game was originally released for the PC in March '98, and sold over 130,000 copies in Korea. The Dreamcast version should be released in January of 2001 for 5,800 yen.

The third game in the second WonderSwan SRT saga, Super Robot Taisen Compact 2 Part 3: Chapter of the Decisive Battle of the Milky Way will be released on January 18th for 4,500 yen. Playable on both the WonderSwan Color and regular WonderSwan, this installment continues (and reunites) the storylines of Part 1 and 2. The main character of Part 2, Excellen (who was the girlfriend of Kyousuke from Part 1), disappeared at the end of Part 2 and will appear again in Part 3, but on the enemy's side! We have some screen shots and artwork for the game.

In other Super Robot Taisen news, according to one of the voice actors, a SRT game featuring characters from Turn A Gundam is in the works, and should be released next Spring. The platform is unknown for now.

Lastly, here are the RPG sales for October 23rd to 29th. The figures do not include the @barai version of Eternal Arcadia that came with a Weekly Famitsu.
