Companies both big and small publish loads of RPG goodies and Aksys is no exception. The publisher gained fame for releasing the critically acclaimed fighter, Blazblue, but they want to expand their horizons in other genres. Their previous RPG releases were less than stellar, but they are giving it another shot by releasing Hero's Saga: Laevatein Tactics, a DS Strategy RPG by GungHo works. What does Hero's Saga have to stand out amongst the increasing amount of handheld SRPGs around? Nada. Hero's Saga had some potential, but many things went wrong, and steered this game to mediocrity."
