    Nope. World Destruction is a SEGA RPG created by Masato Kato with music by Yasunori Mitsuda (who also worked together on the Chrono series, Xenogears, and the mixed-media album Kirite), along with a number of members of the Xenogears staff.

    There's also an anime adaptation; I caught the first episode and it was awful crap, but I still have high hopes for the game.

    Anime is horrid. Simply awful.

    The game got decent scores. So, I'll be looking forward to it.

    The anime really killed my hype for the game. The trailers still looked awesome. Hopefully the plot isn't the same as the anime.

    I got so much to play this weekend. I've barely even started Dragon Quest IV and Dragon Ball DS yet.

    I've been waiting for this game for few months.....I'll try the Japan version, because I'm really excited about old-school RPG, and it's 256 MB in size!
    Must be a huge game.....

    I like the game icon too.. [​IMG]

    This is really a top notch RPG, heads and shoulders above what we've been seeing on the DS to date.

    Which of course, probably means it will never be localized outside of Japan. Because its become routine to cheat foreign regions out of the best games around for the handheld. For some reason, these game companies still employ the same decades old (and often failed) business models despite all that has gone on in terms of globalization in that time.

    What little I've played so far, after just stumbling past the first boss, is that it has high production values, an excellent engine (Dragon Quest IV manages to suffer slowdown, yet this game boasts superior graphics and runs smooth), music and sound effects are all top notch, interfaces and menus are clean and stylish. Best of all the battle system looks like it will end up engaging and fun.

    I'm still trying to work out the mechanics, but you can alternate attacks attached to individual buttons. In this respect, it raises Valkyrie Profile to my mind. Maybe its on a timer, or perhaps there are stats involved in the calculations thereof, but sometimes you can chain at least three attacks. And then there's a queue similar to FFTA showing turn order to assist in planning your battle strategy.

    You can even skip dialogue and entire scenes at a time. This is a rare boon from a country where even the worst game scripts consider themselves worthy of your undivided attention, and Japanese writers apparently judge the quality of their own work merely in terms of word count.

    I just hope they didn't piss away _too_ many megabytes on FMVs. Otherwise, it looks to be a lengthy and excellent game without too many anime stereotypes (although I spotted some kind of Pooh bear with an eye patch? Japan never ceases to mystify)

    The game itself looks pretty good and I am a big fan of Asunori Mitsuda myself.

    In the anime the girl is translated like "Morute" but I think is wrong.

    The complete name is "Morte Asshera" and can be (rudely) translated from italian in "Death To Evening" , counting her position in the story I think is right.

    I hope this game reach Or USA or EUR, the anime is slow and Kirye too faggot but I think the game can repair that.

    It's probably just a fansubbing error. The name sounds exactly the same in the game.

    Loving the game so far. The plot is nothing like the anime. Morte is practically the opposite of her anime counterpart, and is much more likeable. There's quite a bit of voiced dialogue, which is the only way for me to understand what's going on.

    Any one know how to get higher combos in a battle. I'm not sure of the controls in battle.
