    I was just looking at some of the new screenshots that came out today, and they look incredible. The game does not have a release date, but IGN says it is 1-4 players. After watching some of the videos on youtube, it appears that it has a real time battle system. It looks like a combination of Final Fantasy and Shadow of the Colosus. If anyone has anymore information or is just psyched about this game like I am, then post some screens or new info.

    2 Nice screens

    Generic male swordfighter.
    Generic female mage.
    What-the-fuck-is-that-thing by the name of KAMOS OGREKIN.
    Elderly dogman called SANTIAGO.

    Awesome names like that tend to make up for a lot.
    So does wifi co-op.
    Really curious what happens between the whole giant-enemy-weakpoint-bashing parts, I mean, it can't ALL be bossrushan. Can it?

    It looks mighty ambitious.

    For some reason I'm not buying into it though. I have been wrong before, however.

    Yes it is by Square-Enix™ And was though to be some kind of sequel or has a connection with the SNES console's "Bahamut Lagoon" game, but kinda of farout from it.... Anyway I'm really hoping for the release of this game!

    My sentiments exactly. [​IMG]

    Sure, anyone could flub up a game, but SE is a like an amazing lover, and I won't question her desire to try something different. I'll just close my eyes and let her do her thing. (Did I say that aloud? [​IMG] )

    But if folks are expecting Shadow of the Colossus, then yeah, I think there's going to be some confusion, if not disappointment. There is the obvious visual and thematic comparison, but I believe you're just going to remain on the platform fighting the entire time. There's been no mention of a grab mechanic like the one in SotC.

    That said, I'm sure there will be more than just one boss fight after the next. Square Enix loves to give their fans a good story, so I'm confident there will be plenty of substance to the game's presentation.

    P.S. -- Love the trademark symbol there, Noraxu67. [​IMG]

    Looks really good (like every Square Enix game). It seems a little bit like Shadow of the Colossus... which is a good thing. Can't wait to try it out.

    Looks freaking awesome. SOTC is one of my top 10 games of all time. I always appreciate it when Squeenix tries to make a new series, as opposed to constant remakes and spinoffs (which I do like BTW). Looks damn good.

    This looks like a lot of fun! However, I'm betting it will have the piracy protection and to be honest. I still can't get ChronoTrigger to work so I'm kinda sad.

    Thanks I always pay Square-Enix some respect to their name, anyway instead of being a sequel to Bahamut Lagoon, how bout thinking that this is somehow connected with Shadow of Colossus?

    I hope it's not too much like SOTC, couldn't even get past the first 3 minutes of the game!! (Are you supposed to ride the horse up those circular stairs or what? I can't do it!!)
