Square has opened up the website for its second GameBoy Advance title, the Brownie Brown-developed Shinyaku Seiken Densetsu. While the game's story will be based on the original Seiken Densetsu, the GBA title will feature a new system, visuals and direction. New weapons, magic and deathblows will also be added. To make battles easier, the ring command will be improved. The game's hero is a 17-year old fencer, whose parents were killed by Shadow Night five years ago. His female counterpart is of the same age and a member of the Mana tribe. Only two supporting characters have been revealed so far: The 23-year old beast man Nikita and Li'l Cactus (known as Saboten-kun in Japanese).
While the game has yet to receive a definite release date, Square is already offering Shinyaku Seiken Densetsu-related merchandise: A 2003 calendar for 1,000 yen (8.53USD) and a Saboten-kun strap for 1,300 yen (11.09USD) can be ordered via the official PlayOnline store.
Shinyaku Seiken Densetsu is still set for a summer 2003 release.
