Nintendo DS

Buena Vista Games plans an anime inspired RPG


The success of Kingdom Hearts prompted Buena Vista Games (read: Disney) to go on the RPG track without Square-Enix. Now the company is developing Spectrobes for the Nintendo DS. This is anime inspired action RPG developed by Jupiter who spearheaded Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories. Unlike KH, Spectrobes is an entirely new property. From Buena Vista Games, "Spectrobes introduces two junior Interplanetary Patrol officers named Rallen and Jeena who learn of strange, prehistoric creatures called Spectrobes that possess special powers. These fossilized Spectrobes hold the key to defeating a vicious and merciless force, known only as the Krawl that threatens to destroy the galaxy. The two heroes embark on a mission to save their galaxy – to do so they must excavate, awaken, train and collect all the Spectrobes they can and battle to defeat the Krawl." Will BVG and Jupiter pull of another success without Mickey Mouse, Sora and Cloud? Or was it all of the licensed characters that made Kingdom Hearts a success? We will find out when Spectrobes is released.
