A short article on Famitsu.com has revealed a new Lufia title for an unannounced console. The Japanese title is Estpolis: The Lands Cursed by the Gods. It will be published by Square Enix and made by the development team of the original titles.

It has been over six years since the last Lufia game was released on the Game Boy Advance, although fond memories of Lufia 2 endure for many fans. More details on the new title will be revealed in next week's Famitsu, which will be in stores Nov. 19th.

New Lufia Is A DS-Based Action RPG

One week ago, we reported that Square Enix was working on a revival of the vaunted Lufia (Estpolis) series. Today, the company gave away a batch of initial tidbits concerning the highly anticipated game. Fittingly titled Estpolis Denki: Yomigaeru Densetsu (Lufia: A Legend Resurrected), the new game will be a DS-based 3D action RPG. Neverland Company, the studio behind the Rune Factory games as well as Shining Force EXA, and Neo has been tasked with developing Yomigaeru Densetsu. Hajime Kojima, who previously worked on Valkyrie Profile 2 and Infinite Undiscovery, is serving as the producer.

The developers are apparently aiming for balancing act between classic features (map gimmicks and solving riddles) and new ones, e.g. a very action-oriented battle system that will allow for intra-party combination attacks.

Lufia: Yomigaeru Densetsu will be available in Japan on February 25th for 5,980 yen ($67.09 USD).

and this is from rpgamer~

Last week, Square Enix announced that it was developing a new game in the Lufia series, known as the Estpolis series in Japan, for the Nintendo DS. According to this week's Famitsu, Estpolis: The Lands Cursed by the Gods will be a remake of the classic Taito RPG, Lufia II. Square Enix will be making some major changes to the original, the most prominent being that Estpolis will be an action RPG, while the original was turn-based. Estpolis will also feature 3D graphics and voice acting.

The majority of gameplay will take place on the top screen of the DS, with the bottom screen showing a map of the area and party information. Players will be able to tap party members during battle to execute combos. During boss battles, the action will expand to take place on both screens, with characters controlled on the bottom screen. Dungeons will still feature puzzles, which were a popular feature of the original Lufia series.

So this is going to be a remake of Lufia 2 it seems, but in an action-rpg setting.

I like!
