    About a month back i noticed on gamefaqs and gamespot a very peculiar game
    Legend of Kay, a game that was released on the Playstation 2 a few years back is getting a port, how good of a port? I cannot answer that as no screens indicate the DS Version.

    The game is releasing in Europe on the 30th of October and will arrive in the States at the beginning of December

    There are no clear DS screen shots.... the ones ive seen look like the PS2 version, odds are this game will have a graphical decrease due to the processing power, still even if the graphics are a little decreased, if it doesnt lag, we may well have a winning Legend of Kay on the Nintendo DS

    I'm looking at this game myself. IGN had the idiocy to post screens they took from the PS2 version, and then scaled down to DS resolution. But don't believe them, the same screens are on Gamespot in full PS2 resolution. I just want a real screen of the DS version.

    I wouldn't get your hopes up though at all. The two versions are developed by totally different people-

    Legend of Kay PS2:
    Developer- Neon Studios
    Publisher- Capcom

    Legend of Kay DS:
    Developer- JoWooD Entertainment AG
    Publisher- Dreamcatcher

    I looked at JoWooD Entertainment AG's game list, and saw very little i'm familiar with. They apparently did a fairly popular game called Panzer Elite, but the also did a lot of other stuff I don't know about.

    So basically, this could turn out completely different from the original, which was a platform adventure game. We might get some sort of 2D platformer instead, and judging from most DS games, we'll probably get that. Not that 2D is bad, but the DS gets the short end of the stick often. Anyways, hits Europe today, hope we get a dump soon to see if it's as good as the PS2 game, or even close to the same. If anyone finds some screens of the DS game, post them up.

    Uhmmmm, they're both publisher and jowood is the parent company of dreamcatcher. Can it be that you got something wrong?

    On another note: Both publisher published average to very good games. But jowood is known for pressing on release dates.

    I don't really get into the details about the publisher, all that matters with the game is the developer. And I just checked Amazon.co.uk. Their page for the game claims it is out of stock. And I can't imagine why, seeing as almost no one knew about this game's existence. Makes me think the date was fake.

    Well, jowood doesn't develop games so who's the developer?

    The game is listened on the official site so it is coming, http://www.jowood.com/?lang=de&site=10

    I try to find out who's the developer, will edit my post or post a new if I find out.

    Until we see an official screen from the game then all we say now is speculation

    By the way....
    For Europe

    Legend of Kay PS2
    Developer: Neon Studios - As indicated on the box
    Publisher: Big Ben Interactive - I havent heard of this company and JoWood appears on the box

    For Europe
    Legend of Kay DS
    Developer: JoWood Entertainment AG
    Publisher: JoWood Entertainment AG

    I find this odd ...

    But like i said until we see an actual screen we will have to wait and see...
    If anyone finds a screen just like granville said, post it up we'd like to see what we're dealing with, and even if it doesnt look as good as the original im still getting it, its Legend of Kay on DS and ill be happy either way, but i wont be happy if they butcher all the gameplay mechanics...

    Bigben published it. [​IMG] They're also an hardware manafacturar. But, they aren't a subsidiary of Jowood. Maybe they co-published it? [​IMG]

    It's a mystery....
