In good news for Dreamcast owners, game publisher Atlus has announced its plans to release a new RPG for the Sega console. Despiria is an RPG with an interesting premise: the gameplay will revolve around mind-reading. Using a technique called "Mind Dive," the player will engage against enemies in "Mind Battles." Other gameplay and plot details remain unknown at this point.
Despiria will hit Japan sometime later this year, although a North American release has not yet been announced. Considering the fact that Atlus has published numerous RPGs on our side of the globe, including such popular titles as Kartia, Thousand Arms, and the Ogre Battle series, this writer would not be at all surprised to hear word of a North American launch very soon. Check back with RPGamer for all the details as they unfold.
