ASH: Archaic Sealed Heat spreads to North America

By Spencer . May 21, 2008 . 6:59am

I thought all hope was lost for Archaic Sealed Heat (aka ASH, aka that Mistwalker game on the Nintendo DS) since it didn’t fare well in Japan. The ESRB says otherwise with an update listing ASH: Archaic Sealed Heat with an “E 10+” rating.   So we’re probably getting the Nintendo DS strategy RPG. Nintendo […]

A look at ASH’s battle system

By Spencer . August 13, 2007 . 5:42am

Refreshingly different, Archaic Sealed Heat (ASH) goes for hybrid combat system that blends tactics from strategy RPGs with your run-of-the-mill, turn based RPG combat. You begin on the field where your team of three characters share action points (AP). Since action points are split between the team you have to choose if you want to […]
