Xbox fans have long been starving for Japanese RPGs. Through the history of Microsoft's two consoles, few JRPGs have been released and none of the caliber seen so often on PlayStation 2. So when the father of Final Fantasy, Hironobu Sakaguchi, started Mistwalker studio with backing from Microsoft, the RPG-starved Xbox masses began to salivate. So far, Mistwalker has given us the disappointing Blue Dragon. But there's a chance at salvation with the more traditional Lost Odyssey, set to arrive in North America on February 12. Ten hours in and one disc (of four) down, there's reason to hold out hope for Mistwalker's latest.
