Sony has released today new information on Wild ARMs Alter Code: F through the official website. As previously explained, Wild ARMs Alter Code: F will feature an entirely revamped story with more playable characters. Zack, Rody and Cecilia will of course be back and playable but secondary characters from the original game will now newly be playable: Ema, Jane and Magdalen, familiar names if you've played the first game. Here's a summary if the character description of these characters, from the official site:
- Ema Hetfield is a 39 year old scientist who is focusing her research work on ARMs and loves old techniques.
- Jane Maxwell is a 14 year-old resourceful, money-loving wild bird better known as Calamity Jane.
- Magdalen Harts is 51, and the butler of the Maxwell family. Highly qualified, he can handle any job from the house chores to the battles. He helps and supports Calamity Jane from behind the scene.
Captain Bartholomew, while apparently not playable, also had his description added in the characters section. Captain of the merchant ship Sweet Candy, sailing the interior sea of Fargaia, Bartholomew is known to hate ghosts.
Wild ARMs Alter Code: F will ship on November 27th, and there is no word a possible US or European localization.
