    Nostalgia was quite a good turn based RPG based on ideas from Final Fantasy (basic turn based gameplay) and Skies of Arcadia (airship battles). It released last year in Japan, developed by Matrix (same engine as FF3 and FF4 DS) and published by Tecmo. Later on, Ignition Entertainment announced that they would be localizing the game. It was originally going to be released in the US in September, but has now been pushed back to a new date- October 27, 2009.

    Today, Ignition Entertainment Ltd., a worldwide publisher and developer of videogames, and Tecmo are proud to announce that October 27th, 2009 will be the official release date for Nostalgia on the Nintendo DS.

    From the developers who brought Final Fantasy III and Final Fantasy IV to the Nintendo DS, this new epic handheld role-playing game will capture the imaginations of gamers by immersing them into a world filled with treacherous airship battles, elusive treasure hunts, and action-packed dungeon combat.

    Set in the 19th century, Nostalgia will take players on a quest through a variety of real-world locations including Tokyo, London, New York, Cairo, South Africa and Russia as players explore and discover a world yet unknown…

    Mark your calendars and prepare for an epic journey as Nostalgia becomes available at retail outlets nationwide on October 27th, 2009.

    For more information you can also visit the official Nostalgia website or follow the game on Twitter at https://twitter.com/nostalgiaDS and/or Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Nostalgia/86920918692.


    Apparently, the game is releasing simultaneously in both US and Europe. And if you've missed the trailer or wanted to see what the game looked like, here's a video-

    Lets hope it stays at that date. It's been pushed back too many times.

    Sweet, once the plane left from Tokyo, I was saying to myself, "Please land in Brazil next..."
    Then it landed in Easter Island and I was a bit discouraged... Then it landed in Rio! I gotta play this game

    I wish them the best of luck. It will be a hard time to compete, but the game sure looks deserving of attention.
