That New 3DS Game By The Creator Of Vagrant Story Is Out December 13

I'm quite interested in Crimson Shroud, a downloadable 3DS game that was just announced for release on December 13.

Mostly because it was designed by Yasumi Matsuno, he of Final Fantasy Tactics and Vagrant Story fame. But also because it sounds kind of awesome.

Here's the official description:

LEVEL-5 and Yasumi Matsuno have brought together the industry's most venerated creators in the world of RPGs to take up the challenge and lend their support to the production of CRIMSON SHROUD. A tribute to the table-top RPG, crucial decisions hinge on the roll of a die. Players roll dice in real time and chain skills together to earn bonus dice of greater and greater face value. Use your dice strategically though, or your foes may yet get the best of you! Follow the tale of a young "Chaser" named Giauque, as he and his team find themselves drawn into the mystery of the Original Gift, the Crimson Shroud. A bold new adventure awaits!

Features:

  • A brand new story from veteran creator, Yasumi Matsuno
  • Roll dice to make crucial choices that alter your fate
  • A classic RPG infused with modern elegance

A classic RPG infused with modern elegance! I've always wanted one of those.
