Sands Of Destruction Flow This Fall

image World Destruction… ahem… I mean Sands of Destruction is scheduled to come out in North America this fall care of Sega USA. The news of that Sega is localizing the game shouldn’t be much a surprise now since English screenshots leaked out last week. We know a talented team is working on Sands of Destruction, but what is the story about?


In Sands of Destruction, a race of powerful beastmen known as the Ferals rule over the human population with tyranny and prejudice.  A group of warriors, the World Annihilation Front, believe their only option for ending the corruption of the Ferals is to end the world as they know it.


This intense game puts gamers in control of an intriguing cast of characters including the crusading Morte Ashera as well as Kyrie Illunis, who unknowingly holds the key to global destruction.  Gamers will explore a fantastic world, traveling across oceans of sand, battling colossal enemy monsters and unraveling the mystery of the creation of the world.


Sands of Destruction sounds dark, but intriguing. We’ll hear what Imageepoch’s President Ryoei Mikage thinks of the story tomorrow. Speaking of Imageepoch fall 2009 is a long way away for Sands of Destruction. There are plenty of Nintendo DS RPGs to keep us busy until it comes out so the wait won’t feel long. However, the Japanese version is done and Imageepoch told us back in October they were already working on a US version. Perhaps, Imageepoch is using this extra time to rebalance the game.

    This Fall Ugh man is that a long wait. Official announcement was expected after imageepoch confirmed it and when those screen shots surfaced. I wonder why they didnt keep “World Destruction” Japanese titles sound so much better with more meaning, example: “The World Ends With You” NA and EU “It’s A Wonderful World” for Japan. I mean less people would buy it but I think the name has more meaning and draws you in more.

    I disagree, as I heard alot sand does play a part of it in the game. Not to mention Sands of Destruction sounds less cheesy.

    I think Sands of Destruction sounds way better than the Jpn counterpart, sometimes NA makes a better title since Jpn’s usage of Eng. words is pretty random at times.. If you play Last Remnant, Deadlock is Lockup in Jpn, Rear Assault was Back Attack. So while some Eng. words may sound good or sufficient in Jpn, it’s off at times and should be modified. I actually thought “Infinite Undiscovery” was rather unique, I was surprised they didn’t change that, and I like “Archaic Sealed Heat”.

    Now let’s see if World of Destruction would go on sale after the Eng. version is announced.

    I must say I regret watching some of the anime series, it dampens my interest in this title drastically.

    I’m still amused that the news part of their site has it as December 10th, but the PR says December 4th. :p

    But yes, quite a long wait!

    Does this mean I have to wait until 2010 for Seventh Dragon? :/

    I doubt it, unless that has balance issues as well.
