Level 5 Announces Jeanne d' Arc
A new SRPG for the PSP
Developers Level 5 (of Dark Cloud, Dragon Quest VIII, and Rogue Galaxy fame) have just announced its first foray into the realm of handheld gaming with a new PSP title called Jeanne d' Arc, according to the latest Famitsu.
The game is set to be published in Japan by Sony Computer Entertainment, and is apparently of the turn-based strategy genre, looking similar to something along the lines of Disgaea on the PS2.
Players will take control of Jeanne, a 17 year old girl, who finds herself in a situation similar to the real Joan of Arc, with a heavenly voice one day commanding her to start out on a journey eventually leading to the victory of France over England in the 100 Years' War.
Jeanne d' Arc for the PSP is reported to be 70% complete and should arrive in Japan later this winter. A North American release is likely to follow, so be sure to check back for more details.
