After nearly ten years Vandal Hearts is getting a new game. Konami is resurrecting their early PsOne/Saturn tactical RPG series for a downloadable Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network game called Vandal Hearts: Flames of Judgment.
This entry serves as a prequel to the Vandal Hearts series so you won’t have to know who Joshua or Ash are. The story takes place on Sostegaria, the same continent where the first game takes place, with two kingdoms locked into battle. Tobias Martin is the protagonist and in charge of rallying warriors to fight on his side.
Konami has Vandal Hearts: Flames of Judgment slated to come out on Xbox Live Arcade first sometime in August. A month later the game will be available on PlayStation Network. Sounds like this won’t be the only Vandal Hearts game either. Konami says Vandal Hearts: Flames of Judgment is “the first next-generation installment” a hint that more downloadable strategy RPGs could be coming in the future.
