Revenant Wings flying to Europe

Square Enix's Nintendo DS-exclusive Final Fantasy game confirmed for PAL territories.

All those European Final Fantasy XII fans that were left wanting more after finishing the game will be able to get back to Ivalice in early 2008.

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings, a DS-exclusive game, is set one year after the PlayStation 2 title Final Fantasy XII. The new game will, according to Square Enix, answer all the questions about what happens next to the heroes of FFXII.

Revenant Wings will also introduce new characters and locations within Ivalice and a new adventure story. It will also have more summons than any other Final Fantasy game, and a soundtrack from Hitoshi Sakimoto--also the composer for Final Fantasy XII. The new game will feature an "evolved" version of the Gambit system, which was introduced in Final Fantasy XII, allowing real-time battles for the first time in the series.

Already dated in the US for November 20, the game is set for Europe sometime in early 2008. For more on Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings, check out GameSpot's hands-on preview.

Don't know... if there's no speech, it might be so and so. ... Last time i tried to play something on the handheld and a port of something was Kingdom hearts chain of memory (GBA) and with no speech the characters were mute and dead (lifeless). Couldn't even bring myself to complete it (good thing KH2 explained the story). It's like this once you play the fully integrated version and get used to it, everything else seems like cheap attempts however if it was played by new people and make Squareenix plenty cash so that they may produce a better future product/version etc. then why not? It can only be a healthy thing.

The game is really slow, I'll tell ya. It takes forever for things to happen.

FFXII was good fun and really addictive, I may buy an original ds to play it on... can't stand the ds, 'tis the usual cheap tacky handheld I come to expect from Nintendo... but then again the gameboy wasn't too bad... not as good as the gamegear... or the lynx... so yeah i'll try and get one cheap, this game looks pretty good.

Hmm, this seems like it is big news or something. Do PAL territories usually get left out with Japanese games?

Oh this sounds great. Though Final Fantasy 12 was an impressive looking game, I wasn't that much impressed by it. However, this spin off for the game does intrigue. I think that's more to do with it being on the DS than anything else. Still, I look forward to it.
