The second game, titled Agarest Senki, is the product of a cooperation between RED Entertainment (Sakura Taisen), Idea Factory (Spectral Force, Spectral Souls) and Compile Heart (Astonishia Story, Rogue Heart Dungeon). Agarest Senki lets you explore five continents over five generations. During each generation the player has to travel through all five continents, defeating bosses and aiming for a seal pillar.

Agarest Senki will be available in Japan on September 27th.
In further PlayStation 3-related news, Bethesda Softworks' The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion will see a release in Japan sometime this fall.
