http://www.gamekyo.com/video12618_riz-zoawd-first-video.html The first video and gameplay footage of the GORGEOUS Wizard of Oz RPG for the Nintendo DS. The game looks spectacular with vivid, detailed, and colorful 3D graphics. The game is in full 3D and is one of the best looking DS game I've ever seen. You play as Dorothy (unless they changed her name in this game) and you control the game using just the stylus. You move by spinning a track-ball on the touch screen. It works similarly to Pac n Roll. The faster you spin it, the faster Dorothy runs. It works like any RPG except enemy encounters aren't random. You can see them on screen and choose to enter battle. Battle is like Dragon Quest with a first-person perspective. You don't seem to see your characters as they conduct the battle. You use the touch screen to select commands. You seem to be able to employ the help of the Scarecrow, Tinman, Cowardly Lion, and possibly Toto. There's said to be a seasonal change system in the game. We've had screenshots where the game shows Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter sections of the game. I don't know how it works. It would be awesome if the game detects your system's date to show the current seasons! But probably not. We'll see. RIZ-ZOAWD is being developed by Media Vision and published by D3. It's set for a Winter release date in Japan. That could mean either late 2008 or early 2009 (the Gamefaqs profile has it Q4 2008).
