First Seiken Densetsu 4 Details Revealed
12.16.05 - 2:10 PM

In the newest issue of Shounen JUMP magazine, Square Enix has finally taken the wraps off Seiken Densetsu 4. While Famitsuu, in an apparent slip, had already revealed the game's target platform before removing said reference, the JUMP article confirms that the newest addition to Kouichi Ishii's series is indeed PlayStation 2-bound. The game is described as a 3D action adventure. Nao Ikeda, who has already worked on the 1999 PlayStation title Seiken Densetsu: Legend of Mana and the upcoming action RPG Seiken Densetsu DS: Children of Mana for Nintendo DS, is also responsible for Seiken Densetsu 4's character designs.

System-wise, the game will feature real-time battles heavy on action elements and situation changes. So far three characters have been revealed. The game's protagonist is a 16-year by the name of Eldi. His past is shrouded in mystery because the villagers found him when he was a young child. Lichia is also 16 years old and lives in the same village as Eldi. The two are childhood friends. Lichia is a priestress capable of listening to the voices of the planet and nature. Puck has become her pet, after he got seperated from his family. The adventure of the Eldi and Lichia begins in the aftermath of a sudden invasion at the hands of a foreign country's army.

Seiken Densetsu 4 will be available in Japan sometime next year.
