When Luminous Arc came out it had the luxury of trudging new territory as one of the few tactical RPGs on the Nintendo DS. Now there is a strategy RPG flood with Final Fantasy Tactics A2, Disgaea DS, and Drone Tactics. The niche genre blew up on the DS which is great for strategy RPG […]

By Spencer . September 18, 2008 . 12:54pm

Japan doesn’t always get the best pre-order swag. We’re getting art books as pre-order gifts with Luminous Arc 2, Eternal Poison, and Persona 4. These aren’t thin art pamphlets either. The 7″ x 10″ Persona 4 Visual Data art book is color 100 pages. Persona 4 also comes standard with a soundtrack CD and it’s […]

Luminous Arc 2 brightens North America in November

By Spencer . July 11, 2008 . 2:28am

Funny story about Luminous Arc 2, I specifically asked Atlus if they were localizing this and Mugen no Frontier: Super Robot Wars Original Generations Saga last weekend. We talked a little about the blatant boob jokes in Mugen no Frontier, but the quote from Luminous Arc 2 was a disheartening reference to the Xseed/Marvelous partnership. […]

Luminous Arc 2 announced with a branching story

By Spencer . September 3, 2007 . 1:04pm

It looks like Luminous Arc isn’t going to be a shot deal. Marvelous Interactive is making it a series with a Nintendo DS sequel. And already Luminous Arc 2 has a few attractive features. The most notable one is a story line that changes depending on how you play the game. Another change is you […]
