This may very well be the most ambitious DS game ever produced. Why do I say this? Let's go over the details- - Developed by Level 5 (Dragon Quest IX) and Studio Ghibli (animators of Spirited Away and other award winning anime films) - Hours of full voice acting and gorgeous hand drawn video animation, and a fully orchestrated soundtrack - The first 4gigabit (512 megabyte) DS game, 256MB was the previous largest DS game size - Classic Dragon Quest-esque RPG turn based gameplay, fueled by a magical story and gorgeous visuals and sound. - Two worlds. One is Oliver's (the playable main character) reality, the other is a fantasy version of reality called Ninokuni The TGS 2009 trailer- The story is about Oliver, a 13 year old boy whose mother dies suddenly due to unexplained reasons (as of yet). A toy he was given by his mother comes alive and reveals itself to be a fairy. The fairy tells Oliver that it may be possible to bring his mother back to life, if he can enter a magical alternate reality world called Ninokuni. The fairy gives Oliver a book that lets him enter Ninokuni, where he meets alternate reality versions of friends and people he knew from his world. This book apparently also serves as a gameplay means to give the player hints about the world and a bestiary which may hold tips for beating monsters. It can also be used to draw runes on the touch screen, at least one of which is drawn in order to make the door between reality and Ninokini. A magical and charming premise indeed. This game is coming to Japan next year sometime (2010). No word of a US release, but I see no reasons it shouldn't. And if it doesn't come, I'll be very ticked off.
