The action RPG Ex-Chaser, one of Idea Factory's upcoming titles for the X-Box, has been confirmed as a launch title for that system. The game, featuring a world that changes depending upon the actions of the player, will hit shelves along with the X-Box on February 22nd, 2002. Multiplayer of up to four players is also supported, which adds a dimension seen in very few RPGs.
The greatest initial challenge for the X-Box will be to establish itself in the Japanese market, a task that has thus far proven to be somewhat daunting. Hopefully, for Microsoft, Ex-Chaser will be one of the titles that enables them to make that sort of breakthrough. No pricing information has been revealed thus far, and no word on a North American release has been forthcoming.
