In Japan, the Culdcept series has seen several iterations, but North America has only seen the light of the self-titled Culdcept for the PlayStation 2 in 2003. Traditionally more strategy/card/board game than RPG, the Culdcept series has rarely included many, if any, RPG elements. Culdcept Saga is the second title in the series to come to North America and is an attempt to modify its already-established strategy board-game gameplay with some basic RPG elements.
