2 New DS RPGs from Mistwalker


mistwalker-logo.jpgAs if their latest DS RPG outing wasn't enough, Mistwalker has now announced two new RPGs to be in development for the Nintendo DS. One of the more obvious and expected RPGs is Blue Dragon DS, developed by FeelPlus+. Those of you who are familiar with the Blue Dragon anime should be glad or disappointed (depends on where your likeness of the anime stands) to know that the DS iteration won't be based on the anime. Whether its a sequel, side story, or new entry in the Blue Dragon series is unknown at this point, but the game is expected to see a release in Japan in March 2008.


Mistwalker's other DS RPG offering is titled AWAY: Tsuresarareta Hitobito (Kidnapped People) and is being developed by Artoon with character design being done by Naoto Oshima, the man who designed Sonic the Hedgehog and Dr. Robotnik. Nothing is known about this game either aside from its announcement, so I can't really tell you what the premise of the game is about. Both Blue Dragon and AWAY will retail at 5,890 yen, with AWAY seeing a release on January 31, 2008. 


Once new information is unveiled about both games, we'll be sure to let you know.
