Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, and ASH all getting U.S. release.
When Final Fantasy father Hironobu Sakaguchi left Square Co. and founded Mistwalker, many wondered what he would work on next, and the answer it seemed was a resounding, “role-playing games, biotch!” With backing from Microsoft, the company went right to work developing RPGs for the embattled (at least in Japan) Xbox 360. Among them, the company recently released Blue Dragon, with Lost Odyssey waiting in the wings, and Nintendo DS game ASH: Archaic Sealed Heat also in development.
Speaking at GDC, Sakaguchi revealed that even though his latest games haven’t all hit stores in Japan yet, Mistwalker does have plans to release them in the United States, and he even tossed out a few rough dates. Blue Dragon might be released for the Xbox 360 in the U.S. this August (with some downloadable content waiting in the wings, to boot), Lost Odyssey should see a worldwide simultaneous release on the Xbox 360 this holiday season, around the same time ASH for the DS is also expected.
As always, these dates are subject to change, so we’ll be sure to keep an eye on this story. If we learn anything else, you’ll see it right here, so check back at VGGEN often!
