Some exciting news posted at Lik Sang:
This week brought with it the US version of Legend of Heroes: A Tear of Vermillion for PSP, and according to GameSpot it's "just what the doctor ordered for RPG fans". A turn-based role-playing game, the adventure plays out in the fantasy world of El Philden, a place consumed by a bitter war. As its citizens fight to survive, one is taken by the darkness, the sister of lead character Avin, a 17 year old boy. As time passes and light returns, wounds heal and lives move on - except for one. As you fight to find Emilee, the game features hundreds of unique characters to interact with, including 14 playable party members.
Character artwork for the full 100+ characters was drawn especially for this PSP title by the famous Minako Iwasaki, and the game developers are the legendary Nihon Falcom; creators of the "Ys," "Brandish" and "Sorcerian series". The result is a classic style RPG with modern 3D graphics, and over 50 solid hours of gameplay. With the inclusion of a pets system too, you can select a furry friend to assist you in battle and collect items. Finally one upping the Japanese original released this June, the US edition here offers improved load times. Again out now, PSP owning RPG fans can at last gorge themselves on a meaty adventure.
