Hi everyone. I’ve got some exciting news for you all: after recent discussions with Nintendo I can now tell you that we’re officially licensed Nintendo 3DS publishers :). While at this point you can only speculate over what tasty Japanese gaming treats we’ve got lined up for you, I hope you’re as excited as we are about Ghostlight coming to the current generation of handhelds :).
That’s not to say we’ve forgotten about the other consoles either and we’re still hard at work on Agarest: Generations of War 2, a new build of which showed up earlier this week. I know I’ve spoken briefly about this before, but I really am impressed with how big a step forward this Agarest game is. While it still retains the same sense of humour as its predecessors, the rest of the game has been given a rather radical overhaul most notably in the graphics department. The combat is far slicker too and faster than in the previous two games and many of the systems are more closely integrated into the main game this time around.
I’m also very impressed with the increased flexibility that Agarest 2 offers. Tying progress to commissions has opened the game up somewhat and it’s nice to have a world map you can wander :). Agarest fans are definitely going to love this new version, and even if you’re new to the series, I’m sure you’re going to love it too :).
And of course, Agarest 2 will be available as yet another classic Ghostlight Collector’s Edition and while the contents are still labelled as ‘top secret’ :) I expect to be announcing details shortly.
Also coming soon will be details of how to pre-order the much anticipated Collector’s Edition of the mighty Fate/EXTRA so that you can ensure you receive all your sweet exclusive goodies.
Finally, in a bit of a departure from Japanese gaming and to celebrate the upcoming Olympics, I can reveal that our hugely popular International Athletics game is soon to be re-launched as a free-to-play game on the iPhone with online leaderboards and a host of other improvements.
That’s all for now. I’ll be back next week but until then why not follow us on our Twitter and Facebook pages, our Youtube Channel and our Google + account, where we’ll be posting all the latest news from Ghostlight? You can also follow me on Twitter for a more personal take on all things Ghostlight.
