    Media Vision (responsible for Wild Arms) announced a new adventure/RPG game for the DS.
    Looks like it's based on the Wizard of Oz story. The graphics are pretty impresive for a DS game..

    It's coming out in Japan by the end of the year.

    The letters RIZ-ZOAWD makes Wizard Oz,so I guess that name is somehow fine.

    This is the most impressive and awesome looking DS game yet. It's just beautiful! How they get graphics like that out of the DS is beyond me. Looks like a friggin PSP game! Maybe the frame rate will be crap. We need to see this in action along with some clean pics of the game (not from a scan).

    Looks great. Despite the name sounding awkward, when you sound it out the right way it sounds like "Rizowd" or "Wizard"

    The DS needs more good RPGs.

    Any questions? [​IMG]
    I doubt they'd make such a detailed artwork if it was just the name of the project


    Anyway, the game looks AMAZING
    I totally hate turn-based RPGs, but I'll still play this [​IMG]

    Apparently you move by touching the green ball on the touch screen..which is pretty dumb.
    Couldn't they put a normal D-Pad control?
