    According to Black Sigil's publisher Graffiti, the game is due for a March 17 release date:

    This game has been delayed for well over a year now, and originally was intended as a GBA game. It's resemblance to SNES RPG's is uncanny, especially Chrono Trigger in which the battle system seems to be based directly off. There seems to be more strategy in combat though.

    Have a look at the trailer:

    Saw that today looking for the info for another game. To be honest there is enough to play in Feb so no biggy, though when this comes out I'll be on to China Wars.

    It should have come out this month where there was less competition, March there are other RPG's that'll steal the limelight, though this one is the one I am more interested in.

    We'll see if they actually keep that date and don't delay it again. I guess they didn't release it at the end of last year because they didn't want to compete with Chrono Trigger. That still didn't give them a good excuse not to release it at the BEGINNING of last year though.

    I'm always up for classic SNES-style RPG goodness. I'll definitely play this.

    I'm curious about the storyline. This game does look promising but I won't see it making into good score since it will be overshadow by FFCC:EoT, GTA: Chinatown Wars, and other RPG's. Hopefully this one doesn't fail.

    This was gonna come out on the GBA more than 2 years ago, and the DS version has been delayed SO OFTEN. I'm sure Studio Archcraft did a wonderful job, but Graffiti is not. I gave up hope when it didn't get the release of Q1 2008, as promised...Push, push, push, well I'd like to see if it releases on March 17th.

    Graffiti can't market a game for shit and they hardly ever release a game without delaying many many times. See Mazes of Fate DS/GBA & C.O.R.E.
