Korean developer Softmax is bringing the Magna Carta role-playing game series to the Xbox 360. And we're bringing you Magna Carta II artwork, which if you're a fan of designer Hyung-tae Kim, you'll probably adore.

While Magna Carta II has only been announced for the Xbox 360 in Japan at this point, that doesn't stop us from posting trailers or high-res character designs—even if some of us are on the fence about Kim's style. I didn't happen to play the PlayStation 2 version, Magna Carta: Tears of Blood, that Atlus brought stateside, so I'll plead ignorance to the game's quality.

But we promised more artwork. And we intend to make good on that promise.

DISCUSSION

If they could clean up their art aesthetic that would be great. Though a more pressing concern is whether or not they use the same localization team. Which I might add could not have done their jobs to save their lives. I mean the sheer ineptitude of the work was almost criminal. Criminal enough to condone torture and execution. How the EFF does one record and listen to such horrible voice acting and not know it is offensively bad. How does anyone think it was alright for them to link the audio tracks to the general sound effects? As much as I liked the game, those things were simply terrible. I'm hoping they make up for it in the sequel. Of course, I wouldn't mind if they added some depth and reasonable reward to their socializing system. More variety in gameplay would be welcomed as well. A less linear progression could help too... Okay so the original game was D+ at best, but all these listed things could make it so much more.
