Sega’s World Destruction project is more than a Nintendo DS RPG. It’s a media explosion similar to .hack. This July TV Tokyo will broadcast an anime focused on six characters with the intention of destroying the world. Production I.G., the studio behind Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, will take care of the animation. On July 27, the World Destruction universe expands with a manga with a running in Dengeki Ou.

The Nintendo DS game, World Destruction: Michibi Kareshi Ishi, is scheduled for release on September 19 in Japan. Right now Sega’s US branch has not announced any plans about an international release, but the size of the project makes it likely World Destruction is coming to North America. Here’s a look at what we might see in English sometime in the future.

    I am not too fond of the idea of the story being presented via different media if they’re half baked. I hope the game’s story is good as a standalone, w/o having the need to read the manga or watch the anime to fully enjoy the game.

    The char design (Xenogears/Saga ep I) looks good as well. Kind of sick of Miyano Mamoru (Light in Death Note) voicing the main char in every new game though, Lux Pain, Star Ocean First Departure, this..

    Other than that, can’t wait except my wallet is crying (importing Metal Gear Solid 4 since the Eng. version doesn’t have Jpn track).

    @ Aoshi00

    Each version will have a different take on the story. So if your a fan of one media over the other, that its fine as a standalone. If you like all three media types, than I would wait till all are available and wait for reviews of each and see which version you might enjoy better.

    it looks great. deffinately want to play this.

    @Aoshi00: as long as he voices his roles well, and in my opinion he does, I’m fine with it. I like his voice.
