And the award for fastest PlayStation 2 to Nintendo DS port goes to… Elminage! In March the game was released as a PlayStation 2 dungeon RPG. This fall Elminage will be sold as a Nintendo DS dungeon RPG under the name Elminage DS Remix. The interface has changed to pull menus on the bottom screen, but it isn’t clear if Starfish is significantly “remixing” the core game. While this probably doesn’t mean much to Japan since they already have Elminage, news of a Nintendo DS port means it’s likely we will see this version of Elminage localized in English. UFO Interactive who typically localizes Starfish stuff is the primary candidate to take care of Elminage Remix. Atlus is second since they have experience with the genre.
