    A friend of mine told me about a Nintendo DS game about 1 or 2 years ago... I cannot remember the name for the life of me! Can anyone help me find it?

    All the information I can remember:
    -- Innovative use of the touch screen and buttons together
    -- Bright, quirky graphics with a mix of 2D and 3D
    -- Was story-driven
    -- Story was generic 'orphan who becomes a hero' stuff
    -- Was highly based in fantasy

    It's too late to call him, and if I cannot remember then he probably won't remember either.

    I don't think a game exists with all of this. I don't know of a single game that swaps between 2D and 3D with a generic story and innovative all mixed into one package. You may be looking for the impossible.

    Please more details.
    There are a bunch of RPG's with the use of 2d and 3d.

    At the same time? And with a generic story? And with innovative controls? And all of the graphics being bright and quirky? Are you SURE there are many games like the one I attempt to describe?

    Nintendo Power = rumor mill when it comes to new games.

    I learned to stop reading their articles about upcoming games, as most of it was false speculation that ultimately left me disappointed at the time of arrival for the game.

    TWEWY fits pretty much everything except for the whole orphan, generic story thing (as far as I'm aware). I didn't get too terribly far in, but it seemed like the main character was just really emo and generic.

    If it does not fit everything, it is not the game I am looking for. The World Ends With You does not have the generic story and is not an orphan. The game does not have any 3D graphics at any point.

    The World Ends With You is NOT what I am searching for. In fact, I am playing it right now. If TWEWY was the game I was looking for, then why would I ask if I already had it?

    Ninokuni: Shikkoku no Madoushi is the only game I can even think of that fits this description

    That looks to be it, but I cannot find an english version that does not require the book.

    Well that's not good. Oh well!

    Is there a version of the game that doesn't require the book? There's only one computer in the house and I'm not supposed to be on it if I'm using my Nintendo DS at the same time, so I cannot simply download the book....

    No, but you could always print out a copy of the book

    That is WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too many pages to be printing out for a game that may not even be playable due to the language barrier!

    Also, I forgot to ask, but... Is there a translation going on of the book and the game? I heard the book has required information, and with it being in Japanese I cannot read it... The game is.. well, you get the gist of it.
