The Nintendo DS has one more thing to look forward to in 2011 with the release of Atlus' Radiant Historia, which brings an all-new 16-bit style, time-traveling "steampunk" adventure to the handheld next February.

Radiant Historia offers owners more of what the Nintendo DS excels at, namely old-school style Japanese role-playing games that involve saving the world, this time with a unique position-based battle system, magical time-hopping gameplay and a blend of lovingly hand-drawn 2D graphics with 3D environments. Developer and publisher Atlus also seems quite proud of the game's soundtrack, enough to include a CD of the game's original score with every copy of Radiant Historia.

Take control of the heroic Stocke in a battle that bounces through time when Radiant Historia ships in North America in February 2011. Or, knowing Atlus, any time after that.
