From Software has held a special event in Tokyo to promote the upcoming release of its Xbox 360 RPG eM - eNCHANTarM. Originally scheduled for a release alongside the system earlier this month, From Software had to delay the game's release until mid-January.
At the event the company announced that Mai Kudou will perform the game's main theme. The vocalist of the J-Pop band Ruppina, Kudou has decided to become a solo artist. Her debut single "Reborn" will go on sale in Japan on December 28th. This debut single will double as eM - eNCHANTarM's opening theme. Kudou also also perform the ending theme "Squair". In total, sound producer Yuuki Ichiki has composed 50 tracks for the game.
Producer Takauchi explained that while the game could be completed in about 45 hours, it will take more than 100 hours, if one decides to tackle all the additional content. Director Miyasaki commented that in the end about 150 developers were working on the game. A total of 120 Golems will make an appearance in eM - enCHANTarM, including one modelled after Mai Kudou.
eM - eNCHANTarM will be available in Japan on January 12th for 7,300 yen ($62.80 US).
