    From DSfanboy:
    "This gameplay trailer for Matrix Software's Avalon Code provides a nice representation of the ARPG's gameplay, as far as we can tell: fast-paced battles against big hobgoblins in silly hats, with menu controls in the lovely book-like interface on the bottom screen. Here, we can see a player switching out characters in the middle of this hobgoblin battle.

    Interestingly, data about the hobgoblin doesn't appear in the book until the hero has pulled off a combo attack against the creature. It appears that the basic attacks still caused damage, but that there's some kind of prerequisite for obtaining monster information."

    Nice. I can't wait to see what Matrix does with this. They have done a remarkable job with the FF remakes on DS, but an action RPG -- an original IP, at that -- should be very interesting. Of course, who knows when and if we'll see an English localization of the game. I'd say, in this day and age, it's more a question of "when," but still....
