Fledgling publisher Xseed has announced details for its next release, Shadow Hearts: From the New World. The game is rated T for Teen, should see a March 7 release in the US, and will retail for $39.99.

nothing to do with the last two, and yes it's gonna be worth it. an unorthodox turn-based rpg, and if this is as good as the last one, one of the best ones I've played.
