Like the look of Mana Khemia? Then keep an eye out for Mimana Iyar Chronicle. GungHo Works, the company that brought Ragnarok Online to the DS last month, is the developer.
Similar to Gust’s games Mimana Iyar Chronicle uses detailed sprite graphics and has anime cutscenes. Mimana Iyar Chronicle is a fantasy RPG too, but it’s story probably won’t be a fantasy epic. Kogado Studio, a company know for making bishojo games (girl’s games) is helping with the story.
