I honestly cannot wait to play this titan on the PSP.Agito XIII looks like the exact type of flagship game the PSP needs in 2009.The online multi-player sounds great but the meat of the project will be another great RPG from Nomura.

Well, even though Google's translation isn't that far off, it's still not 100%, so I hope the text below helps those who are interested.

"Final Fantasy Agito XIII" is part of the project "Fabula Nova Crystallis", which contains a series of themes and plots to place not only this game, but also "Final Fantasy Versus XIII" and the main game "Final Fantasy XIII" as if they were all part of the same universe. The game also comes in response to Square-Enix's recent guideline of developing products focused on universal themes, in order to better penetrate the western market.

The script has been safely kept secret, but it revolves around a large conflict between the four major nations of planet Orience. The war nation Milites breaks the truce and conquers all other three until it finds a small kingdom, isolated in a remote island, protected by a magic crystal which prevents the entry of intruders. But when said crystal explodes and its defenses fall, 12 students from the local magic academy are chosen to expel the invaders - by using katanas (swords), bows, shotguns, spears and even magic flutes and tarot cards.

The game's mechanics are very alike "Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core", consisted of an action game with a few touches of RPG, since the game reuses its graphic engine and other features, such as the ATB combat system and control of various characters. There's support for online multiplayer, including cooperative, allowing players to change avatars during gameplay, according to the creature they wish to evoke.
