World Destruction… ahem… I mean Sands of Destruction is scheduled to come out in North America this fall care of Sega USA. The news of that Sega is localizing the game shouldn’t be much a surprise now since English screenshots leaked out last week. We know a talented team is working on Sands of Destruction, but what is the story about?
In Sands of Destruction, a race of powerful beastmen known as the Ferals rule over the human population with tyranny and prejudice. A group of warriors, the World Annihilation Front, believe their only option for ending the corruption of the Ferals is to end the world as they know it.
This intense game puts gamers in control of an intriguing cast of characters including the crusading Morte Ashera as well as Kyrie Illunis, who unknowingly holds the key to global destruction. Gamers will explore a fantastic world, traveling across oceans of sand, battling colossal enemy monsters and unraveling the mystery of the creation of the world.
Sands of Destruction sounds dark, but intriguing. We’ll hear what Imageepoch’s President Ryoei Mikage thinks of the story tomorrow. Speaking of Imageepoch fall 2009 is a long way away for Sands of Destruction. There are plenty of Nintendo DS RPGs to keep us busy until it comes out so the wait won’t feel long. However, the Japanese version is done and Imageepoch told us back in October they were already working on a US version. Perhaps, Imageepoch is using this extra time to rebalance the game.
