    A new RPG for DS was officially announced today named Cross Treasures. Apparently its existence may have been known, but now we have the title, details, and some screens. It's a collaboration between Square Enix and V Jump. Features as follows-

    - collaboration between Square-Enix and V-Jump
    - and RPG with the concepts of 'play together' and 'connect together'
    - 4 player with customizable characters
    - create/customize game world
    - connect your world to other user-created worlds
    - hunt enemies and collect treasures
    - single player mode included
    - Illustrations by Shinya Suzuki
    - developed alongside ideas that readers of V-Jump have submitted
    - due to release this year in Japan

    Clearly this is an action RPG and intended for multiplayer

    There's no mention of wifi being present or not. And it was just announced for Japan without a date, so don't expect a US date any time soon. Not to be morbid, but I'm kind of skeptical that the game WILL come out over here. Vjump is a Japanese magazine I believe. This is a collab game between SE and Vjump. It's possible that the game won't come to the US just due to the lack of Vjump over here. Pure speculation of course, but don't get your hopes up in this case.

    It's funny how they make these games with the idea that 4 friends are going to buy this game. What are the chances of that? Luckily though, we've got flashcarts. [​IMG]

    if it's a turn based RPG I'm not buying it, there's already 9 million of those on the DS and it's time they made something new

    Screens don't show up. I've seen them at another site, though, and it looks kinda crappy.

    If it has Wi-Fi then this concept and game is an automatic success however if no then it practically fails at default. I think it does because of the connect together, play together concept.

    If the concept is what I think it is (anime characters + RPG), then there's no way in the deepest depths of hell I'll play this game. I'll wait for PS0 (which may have anime-like characters but it's bearable). If it doesn't have anime characters, it sounds interesting.

    Yay! Looks quite good IMO and has a bit of a KH/FFCC/Gauntlet feeling to it. I'll keep my eyes on this.

    Looks a lot like dq9 to me, which is good because I really wanted the multiplayer aspect to be real time, like a legend of zelda. When they changed it to turnbased, i was really pissed. I'm hoping this will get released in America, but even if it is, i'm guessing it won't get released till mid to late 2010.

    About time this game got a name. That makes two SE RPG games to look forward to at the end of the year. Looks like they're on a roll with this.

    That boss health bar looks a lot like the boss health bar in Soma Bringer IMO.

    Hopefully, a character from Digimon V-Tamer Adventure 01 or even Digimon Next will be in it, cuz that would be awesome

    This is an action RPG. Not turn-based.
