A little over a year after the original first hit Japan, Blue Dragon is in the news again, this time with a first look at a portable spinoff. First announced in early October, Blue Dragon DS has at long last shown its true form in the latest issue of Japan's Shounen Jump.
Blue Dragon DS appears to be a totally different type of game from the Xbox 360 original. Instead of a turn-based Japanese RPG, DS owners can look forward to a 2D realtime party-based strategy game. Details are scarce, but the game appears to put a party of ally characters on the battle field against an army of enemies commanded by a large boss.
