Enchanted Arms screenshots to scoff at?

Let's not deny it -- Sony's last two consoles have been great mediums for the role-playing enthusiasts. Has been for this guy. Anyway, one of the few traditional JRPG's to grace the XBox 360, Enchanted Arms, has been ported over to the PS3... or... it's still in the process of being so ported. Honestly... not too excited about it. Perhaps a rental. Just to get an RPG that's not PS2-i-fied.

In any case, there are some nice screenshots of the game on the PlayStation website. Looks nice, looks neat. Speaking of games that looked nice but played like a pile of poo, anyone out there give that Magna Carta game a try? Still have a 33 hour save on my PS3, but I sold that thing without much hesitation. See... the battle system was good in concept, but it was pretty unforgiving. And when you needed magic to fight enemies, all your magic users were conveniently rendered unplayable via the surprisingly decent story. Damn... now I want to play it again. Er, check out the Enchanted Arms screens!

Ubisoft releases first quarter game line-up

Aren't you curious to see what Ubisoft has planned this first quarter? While we'd love to just copy and paste the list in its entirety, it's probably best if we just list the games coming out for the PS3. It's more honest and, well, it makes the list much smaller.

  • Enchanted Arms
  • Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas
  • Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Double Agent

Again with your monopolization... damn you, Tom Clancy! Now keep in mind some of the games listed should be coming out on the PS3 -- they just have a different release date from the other systems and fall outside of the first quarter. Well, Ubisoft, hopefully these three games (along with the other March releases) will wholly satisfy us.

Enchanted Arms slated and priced for the PS3 market

As with many "exclusives", developers change their minds pretty quick. Enchanted Arms is no exception, quickly moving onto the PS3 to face off against the multitude of other RPG's on Sony's consoles (the PS3 might not have many yet, but I'm still trying to get through the PS2 library). From Software has dubbed the release date January 25th, 2007 at a hefty price tag of 8190 yen (over $70). The game has a ho-hum story we've come to expect from many RPG's -- a hero with powers has to save the world for some reason, forms a ragtag group of heroes, battles some evil. Good stuff, even if most RPG's come in the same general flavors, not unlike beer. Mmm, JRPG-brew. Anywho, the game will be a welcome addition to the PS3 library but there has been no word on an American release, officially. It's safe to expect it sometime soon, though. I'm guessing March, to coincide with Europe's release. A little optimistic? Maybe.

Enchanted Arms rumored to approach the PS3

If this rumor turns out to be true, Sony fanboy's wait to see their first true next-gen RPG will be shortened. The game's developer, From Software (our buddies from the Armored Core series), recently had a talk with Famitsu magazine and implied there was a Sony version of the game already planned. This shouldn't come as much of a surprise since From Software's Armored Core games are a staple of the Sony gaming experience (this guy is still searching for a copy of Armored Core 2, actually).

Any extra content? So far, nothing has been noted. We can safely assume that it will, at the very least, be a direct port of the 360 game. Although, with all that extra space thanks to Blu-ray, we can not-as-safely assume there will be something added. This is pretty good news, then. Sony isn't one to miss out on many RPGs and From Software isn't one to readily toss Sony aside (we assume). Those two things add up to a port of Enchanted Arms. More on this as rumor becomes fact.
