Idea Factory Announces Spectral Force Chronicle
01.29.05 - 1:40 AM

Idea Factory has announced the first title to commemorate the 10th anniversary of its foundation. Spectral Force Chronicle is the newest PlayStation 2 simulation RPG taking place in the fantasy world known as Neverland. Ruled by three gods, the world used to be in balance. After countless battles had been fought between the three factions, the Evil King James succeeded in uniting the land under his command. Using his demon tribe, he restored peace in Neverland. However there were still forces who did not consider this a good thing. We are writing the year 996, as a group of three humans wielding the powerful Demon Sword break into Janes' castle and end his reign. This sets the stage for the return of chaos and the triggers off the largest and worst war in Neverland's history, the Neverland War. A total of seven playable factions will take part in this war.

Compared to the Spectral Souls games, Idea Factory is implementing a different battle system in Spectral Force Chronicle. After selecting which characters they want to use in battle, players can let those characters move freely over the battle map. The only limitation to this movement is the amount of AP (action points). Both movement and actions such as attacks require a certain amount of APs. Each characters can hold up to three different death blows. If certain requirements are met, players can also unleash powerful chain attacks on their enemies. Last but not least, combination attacks also make a return in this game.

Those who pre-order the game will receive a DVD containing trailers, anime sequences and character illustrations from the first Spectral Force as well as Spectral Force Chronicle.

Spectral Force Chronicle will be released in Japan on April 28th. The standard version will be available for 6,800 yen ($65.96 US), while the limited edition will cost 8,800 yen ($85.36 US). The latter will come with a 10th Anniversary Commemoration Soundtrack CD, nine trading cards, and two artbooks.
