SCEI announced no sooner than today, a PlayStation 2 installment of their RPG series Wild Arms. If Wild Arms: Advanced 3rd is to follow in the series' footsteps, it is likely that it will feature a new story unrelated to the previous Wild Arms games, as the four new characters seem to hint at. Wild Arms: Advanced 3rd has yet to receive an official release date.
The first picture available is an illustration of the new characters. Sony's official site has a flash introduction and a message board for the game, but no hint on the game's story or development staff. We'll be sure to keep you informed as new info emerges!
