09.13.06 - 6:38 PM
Square Enix today announced three new projects, including Subarashiki kono Sekai: It's a Wonderful World, Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings and Kingdom Hearts II: Final Mix.
Subarashiki kono Sekai for Nintendo's DS is an original Action RPG taking place in a modern world. Screenshots show the infamous crossing in front of Shibuya station in downtown Tokyo. The game's protagonist is capable of reading the hearts of others. Together with the female lead, Siki, he is forced to play a mysterious game in Shinjuku. Since the game's development team is made up of talent that previously worked on Kingdom Hearts, it should come as no surprise that the game features action-oriented battles utilizing the DS's touchpad.
Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings is another DS-based RPG, centering around Final Fantasy XII's protagonist Vaan and his girlfriend Panelo. The duo will embark on a new adventure, taking them to a floating continent.
Last but not least, Kingdom Hearts II: Final Mix for PlayStation 2 follows Square Enix's traditional and successful formula of bringing the US version of a popular game to Japan. This includes English voice acting and the various other enhancements and additions made in the US release. One screenshot also shows the implementation of card battling elements, reminiscent of Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories.
Subarashiki kono Sekai: It's a Wonderful World, Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings and Kingdom Hearts II: Final Mix have yet to receive official release dates.
