Enix recently has delivered new details on Samurai Evolution, its most recent Game Boy Advance RPG. As mentioned in the title, the game is to have a major Japanese samurai atmosphere to it.
Samurai Evolution takes place in a region known as Sakura Country where the heroine Yuki, a mercenary, is assigned to save a kidnapped VIP from an underground association. Other characters include Shenya, Yuki's twin brother, Linsai, the leader of the Sakura Country's secret agents, Fei, a powerful maiden warrior, and Yugi, Yuki's nemesis.
The battle system sets Yuki and other characters in a "Star Battle" formation reminiscent of Star Ocean. Wielding a creature known only as "X", battling characters can transform the living weapon into many different kinds of weapons. As a kind of magic, each character also utilizes an arsenal of the usual elemental attacks: fire, ice, wind, and thunder.
Samurai Evolution is slated for release sometime this September in Japan. A North American release date has not been confirmed.
