    Could a Mod. please put a NFO-Data and Icon from the game in?
    I did find this ony my usual ROM-Sites, but I was too lazy to download just to put nfo data in the thread, so I posted it without, but would be awesome if a mod could edit this and put both icon and nfo-data in it ;D

    well the japanese could be romanised either way, and since the url for the official site is "nostalgeo" that is probably the correct one

    This game is pretty fun judging from the first 5 minutes.

    Story spoilers from the intro:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Standard RPG stuff here, but it's well done! If you've played Final Fantasy 3 DS, the gameplay seems to be a carbon copy. And I use FF3 instead of 4 due to the lack of the ATB system. Take as long as you want inputting battle commands. The battles play just like FF3DS without the job system. The game even looks just like the FFDS games (and it's logical since this uses the same graphical engine and is developed by Matrix). The story and setting is what sets it apart. It takes place in the mid to late 1800's and in our world. There are even real world locations like New York, London, and Tokyo! I hope this gets a US release as it seems to be an excellent RPG!

    Touch controls seem to be nonexistent. I couldn't even move the character around using the touch screen. There's a map screen on the bottom screen most of the time. The intro scene had cutscenes and the characters' mouths move, but I have yet to hear any voice acting. It's kind of weird seeing the mouths moves and text, but no voices. Not much of a complaint, but certainly weird. But props go to Matrix! They know the DS and really try to push it's capabilities! [​IMG]

    By the way, this game has a level up system with a grid-based skill allocation system. It's a bit like Final Fantasy 10........yeah, I said that. But don't fret! This is a GOOD game! [​IMG]

    Man, totally overlooked this one. Been keeping track of it, but I didn't recognize the Japanese title. Definitely looks like another beautiful DS RPG. Was this one also developed by Matrix?

    Yes I believe so. The skill grid system isn't what I expected, and not being able to get S on weak monsters (relative to your level) sucks.
    Those two cons were significant enough for me to agree with 30/40.
