From the New World to stores

Xseed ships Great Depression-era Shadow Hearts sequel for PlayStation 2; role-playing game set in real-world locations from Chicago to Rio de Janeiro.

Upstart publisher Xseed Games formed last year with the announcement that it was bringing a pair of Japanese role-playing games to market. The first, Wild Arms 4, shipped earlier this year. Today the company announced that it will soon be joined by the recently shipped Shadow Hearts: From the New World.

The third entry in the Shadow Hearts series, From the New World starts off in New York City at the start of the Great Depression, and it brings the Judgment Ring battle system to a variety of real-world cities. The plot follows 16-year-old amnesiac and detective Johnny Garland as he tracks down an escaped criminal, only to have a monster swallow up his mark at the last minute. It's part of a series of horrific incidents across the nation, leading Garland to team with a bounty hunter named Shania and go off in search of answers.

Shadow Hearts: From the New World is rated T for Teen and retails for $39.99. Check back soon for GameSpot's full review.

Yea, I recently acquired the first two games. I'll be picking this up too. Sadly I won't be playing them until after I'm done with KH2, which could be a long while.
