- Yesterday Ushiro
for PSP was announced by Level-5, and today they have unveiled another four titles as well.
For those who didn't know, Level-5 is the independent Japanese developer who was worked on everything from early PlayStation 2 RPG Dark Cloud to the world-beating, epic Dragon Quest VIII.
The games set to be unveiled, as profiled by this week's issue of Weekly Famitsu magazine, are as follows:
Ninokuni: The Another World
(Nintendo DS, with an port to an unspecified console also planned) is an RPG starring a 13-year-old boy who's invited into a magical fantasy land by a spirit, a world eerily close to Earth that's under the rule of a dark sorcerer.
There he hopes to deal with the issues that haunt his life, not the least of which being that he was responsible for his mother's passing not long ago. This project is no doubt the biggest announcement of the day, mainly thanks to one small detail: Studio Ghibli, Japan's most famous animation studio, is working on Ninokuni's animated sequences, the first time the company has ever provided original work for a video game.
(PSP) is a build-and-fight RPG with more than a passing resemblance...
