Winds of Nostalgia Lifts Off For North America

image We always have our eyes on Ignition Entertainment. Why? Out of left field they release games like Boing: Docomodake that don’t seem like they have any chance of coming over. Today, they picked up Winds of Nostalgia, you know that airship RPG for the Nintendo DS.


Winds of Nostalgia plays like a classic RPG with 3D graphics. Set in an alternate version of 19th century Earth, players visit locations like Cairo, London, and New York. However, in the game these locales have airships and random encounters. Winds of Nostalgia has two kinds of combat: ground fights with monsters and airship battles where you skewer other airships with a giant sword.


Red Entertainment, Matrix Software (the studio known for the Final Fantasy DS remakes), and Tecmo teamed up to publish Winds of Nostalgia in Japan last year. A domestic release is scheduled for September 2009.

  • Taking cues from Skies of Arcadia much? Not that it’s a bad thing.

      Battles look just as slow too imo… which I kinda wish they hadn’t taken cues from. :/

      Still, looks it looks really good. Depending on reviews, I might take the plunge.

  • Anti Smile

    The MANGOD strikes again! (lol) Oh Shane…

    • Hero of Legend

      Why is Shane considered mangod? I obviously missed something.

  • Faux

    If this is anything like SoA, which it seems to be, this is a release day buy.

  • Pichi

    So glad to hear!! I thought it was out of the radar.

  • CleruTesh

    I thought I read somewhere that this was coming to the US quite awhile ago…. but then nothing. Thought it was a lost cause at this point. A definite must buy for me.

  • Mazen

    I always expect this to come over its a high quality RPG it should sell well.

  • jarrodand

    Nintendo Power has a good story on the game… sounds like it actually started life as a Saturn title!

  • ryukyus

    really glad they picked this up so quick awesome game
