Aruze has launched a cell-phone based fan club site for its upcoming PlayStation 2 RPG Shadow Hearts II. The site, which is accessible via all three major cell-phone service providers in Japan (NTT DoCoMo, KDDI and Vodafone) offers the download of original ring tones and wallpapers as well as an option to purchase Shadow Hearts merchandise.
Shadow Hearts II will be available in Japan on February 19th. The standard version will retail for 6,800 yen ($64.04 US), wheras the limited edition DX Bag will be available for 9,800 yen ($92.30 US). The latter will come with a special DVD, Ann's cross on a strap as well as two special judgement ring coasters in black and white respectively. Players who pre-order either version of the game will be treated to a post card, which if sent in might be the key to a nice present as well as a free cell-phone strap.
