TOKYO--Sony Computer Entertainment has announced that the fifth installment of its popular Wild Arms role-playing game series is currently in development by Media Vision Entertainment for the PlayStation 2. The game will be titled Wild Arms: The Vth Vanguard. A teaser is currently available for viewing at the Wild Arms series' 10th-anniversary commemoration Web site. No release date or details have been announced yet. However, considering that the game is slated for release as a 10th-anniversary title, it will most likely come out during 2006, as the original Wild Arms was released in Japan in December 1996.

4th Detonator won't be out, unless some local retailer has insanely fast shipping. It'll be in store within the next 48 hours, not 24 most likely. Anyways, I can't wait. I just hope they'll release it stateside relative to the JP release, unlike with 4th Dt....

I've never played the first one and i can't find afc, but I've played number 2 and that was a great rpg but the third one was just to complicated story wise.

The original Wild Arms was good. But the series has been going downhill since ever since then. Maybe Vth will bring it back...but probably not.

Yeah the first Wild Arms was good. At least until other role playing games came out for the PS1. up until that point the only other RPG for the PS1 was Beyond the Beyond LOL.

Remake of the first Wild Arms is already done; it's called Wild Arms: Alter Code F. I think GS already has a review posted, not sure though.

wild arms 1 had the best plot twist ever, and a great story. wild arms 2 had great characters, and an okay story...and wild arms 3 was just plain bad....but the series was once right at the top of the rpg genre
