05.10.05 - 9:26 PM
Namco has updated the official Tales of Legendia website. The newest installment of the company's flagship RPG series will feature a so-called Climax mode. In battle mode, a long gauge stretching across the entire screen is visible. Once this gauge is filled up, enemies will become defenseless, allowing the player to go on an offensive rampage until the gauge has emptied again. During climax mode it will also be possible to unleash certain special techniques which can only be used while in climax mode.
Another new feature is the so-called passing through system. Utilizing this system will allow the player's party to attack an enemy from both sides or confront an enemy standing in the rear guard. Enemies however will from time to time block your attempt to do so.
Tales of Legendia will be available in Japan on August 25th for 6,800 yen ($64.38 US). The game will be released in North America sometime in winter 2006.
