Xseed confirmed they picked up Unchained Blades, a dungeon RPG from the creators of Lunar and Grandia. The story follows Fang, a proud and powerful dragon emperor who loses his powers when the goddess Clunea sees his arrogance. Now a human, Fang befriends a phoenix girl, golem prince, medusa priestess, and an emotionless dryad. (More screenshots here.) Each character in Unchained Blades was drawn by a different artist. Fang was created by Shining series illustrator Pako.
Unchained Blades is played from a first person perspective and the Unchain battle system lets players turn monsters into allies. The four party members you brings have four monsters in their team for a total of 20 characters in a group.
Unchained Blades is slated for release on PSP and Nintendo 3DS as a digital download later this year. Xseed’s release will be fully localized with English voiceovers.
