In a move likely expected by many North American gamers, Xenosaga Episode III: Also Sprach Zarathustra, the third game in the Xenosaga series, will be crossing the Pacific sometime this fall. As with the previous installments, Namco Bandai will be releasing Xenosaga III for Playstation 2.
"We are very excited to bring this conclusion of the Xenosaga series to the fans who have been anxiously waiting to see how this epic adventure will conclude," Namco Bandai product group director Yoshi Niki said. Some gamers may remember that Xenosaga was originally intended to last through six installments, but the series appears to be downsized from six games to three, reportedly due to poor sales.
Xenosaga III will feature three hours of cutscenes, great customization and specialization options through an enhanced battle system, and a bonus 50-level Xeno Bible minigame.
