Konami Digital Entertainment has announced that they will be releasing the Kojima Productions-develeoped Action-RPG Lunar Knights for the Nintendo DS on this side of the Pacific. Featuring a unique "night and day" system, players will be able to hunt undead in both realms with elemental-style attacks. Animation will be done by Studio 4 Degrees, who also worked on The Animatrix.
The characters are also able to command a pet called the Terranial that will learn elemental attacks throughout the game and will learn new commands that are administered through the DS's touch screen and microphone.
"Kojima Productions has combined fast-paced action with groundbreaking real-time environment effects to create Lunar Knights, an original action role-playing game for the Nintendo DS," said Colin Ferris, Associate Product Manager with Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. "With its innovative day and night cycle, two playable characters and extensive touch screen support, the game takes full advantage of the Nintendo DS's unique features to deliver one of the most immersive and entertaining experiences available on any system."
