Nippon Ichi Software Opens Phantom Kingdom Website
11.13.04 - 3:09 AM

One day after the game was announced in major Japanese publications, Nippon Ichi Software has opened the official website for its newest project Phantom Kingdom. The PlayStation 2 title will be another of the company's trademark light-hearted strategy RPGs. In the castle of the demon king protagonist Xeta, players will prepare their parties for battles. During the battles, it will be possible to summon entire buildings and bring in characters and weapons by using the new invite system. Players will have to defend those buildings, though, since they serve as entrance and exit for party members. Sometimes enemies will also use buildings to bring in new troops. To cut off their support, party members can enter the buildings and take out enemies as soon as they enter the battle field. In addition to Xeta, which was turned into an omnipotent scripture and is now trying to regain his original form, two other main character has been revealed. Plum is a female demon capable of seeing the future. Despite being very proud, she also has a nice side to her. Valvolga is an evil god who consists of a demon king, a fallen angel and a dragon.

Phantom Kingdom will be available in Japan sometime next year. A limited edition release has already been confirmed, but no details have been announced so far.
