New information regarding Sony Computer Entertainment's PlayStation 2 RPG Arc The Lad: Seirei no Tasogare (Twilight of Spirits) has surfaced. The game will feature a parameter named tension, which will determine your party members' effectiveness in battle. A high tension value will allow them to effectively fight against the opposing force. Hence you should do anything you can to raise their level of tension (mainly through means of communication), in order to secure victory in the next battle.
Arc The Lad: Seirei no Tasogare is set to be released in Japan sometime this winter.
