Avalon Code is possibly joining the already long list of Nintendo DS RPGs slated for February 2009. This isn’t definite, but two retailers plan to ship Avalon Code in North America then. When XSEED announced Avalon Code for North America it was scheduled to arrive in “Q1 2009” so these listings correlate with XSEED’s original plan.
Matrix Software developed Avalon Code and it looks great for a DS game. The book system sounds pretty neat since you can scan and reconfigure monster attributes after whacking them with a magic book. However, if Avalon Code comes out then it’s going to face fierce competition from established franchises like Dragon Quest and Fire Emblem. XSEED might be better off releasing Avalon Code two or three weeks later to push it into March the February DS RPG wave is a memory.
