Black Sigil: Blade of the Exiled's long development history has come to an end. Partially prolonged by a switch from the Game Boy Advance to the Nintendo DS, the much anticipated RPG has finally gone gold.
Graffiti Entertainment boasts that Black Sigil: Blade of the Exiled will have 40-50+ hours of gameplay, along with a deep turn-based combat system. Players will form a party of three from up to eight unique characters, with over 100 physical and magical skills and combos at their disposal. Characters will be able to equip over 100 different weapons and over 200 pieces of armor. Black Sigil's graphics are reminiscent of games such as Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy VI.
The game's story takes place in Bel Lenora, a world filled with born magic users. Fifteen years ago, a man without the power of magic brought destruction throughout the land and was banished with great cost. Today, a young knight named Kairu is also found to be without the power of magic. Players should be able to join Kairu on his cursed journey soon, as the game is scheduled for release on March 17, 2009.
