Official Monster Kingdom Site Goes Live
09.09.05 - 2:42 PM

Sony Computer Entertainment has opened the official website of its PlayStation Portable RPG Monster Kingdom: Jewel Summoner. While the site doesn't contain any new information regarding the game's story and characters at this point, it features a message by the game's producer, Shin Megami Tensei mastermind Kouji Okada. According to Okada, the driving force behind the creation of his company Gaia was the creation of original games. Just at that point Sony Computer Entertainment approached the 20-year industry veteran and asked him about developing games for its new handheld platform PlayStation Portable. Okada describes the concept behind Monster Kingdom as making use of the easiness and convenience of a handheld system.

The game's soundtrack is composed by the following ten well-known composers:

Hitoshi Sakimoto (Final Fantasy XII, Final Fantasy Tactics, Vagrant Story, Breath of Fire V, Ogre Battle series)
Yasunori Mitsuda (Chrono Trigger, Xenogears, Chrono Cross, Xenosaga Episode I: Der Wille zur Macht)
Kenji Itou (SaGa series, Sword of Mana)
Youko Shimomura (Parasite Eve, Seiken Densetsu: Legend of Mana, Kingdom Hearts series)
Shinji Hosoe (Ridge Racer series, Xenosaga Episode II: Jenseits von Gut und Boese)
Masaharu Iwata (Ogre Battle series, Shadow Hearts, Treasure Hunter G)
Tsukasa Masuko (Shin Megami Tensei series)
Yasuyuki Suzuki (Kyojin no Doshin, Taiyou no Shippo)
Ayako Sasou (Ridge Racer series, Beatmania series, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance)
Takahiro Ogata (Maken series, Shin Megami Tensei NINE)

Monster Kingdom: Jewel Summoner will be available in Japan sometime this winter.
