Aksys Games Associate Producer, Michael Manzanares, was and said the following quote about the game, “This is one of those titles where morbid curiosity really hits you once see some screenshots. Instead of being nothing but cheesecake, Record of Agarest War turns out to have some length and girth to it. Color us surprised.”
The length part refers to a 100+ hours of gameplay and the multi-generation Soul Breed system where you procreate the next hero. Seems like a lot for a downloadable game, but Record of Agarest War was originally a retail title. Aksys has not announced pricing for the downloadable version at this time.
We do have some screenshots from the English version too and, thanks to Joystiq, trailers with Japanese voice acting. And yes, Record of Agarest War will only have Japanese voiceovers, which is becoming more common these days.
