Rumiko Takahashi's popular medieval Japan comic Inu Yasha has already generated game adaptations (including a RPG for the WonderSwan) and is now headed to the PlayStation with a new RPG scheduled for December 27th and developed by Bandai - who else? The game will adapt the comic's story but will also have some original elements.
Another upcoming RPG based off an anime/manga is Rave. Groove Adventure: Rave - Eternal Bond is an PS action RPG by Konami featuring SD characters in a 3D isometric view. The player will have to interact with the other characters on order to maintain their Trust level high. Groove Adventure: Rave is scheduled for January.
