Blue Dragon: Awakened Shadow has been confirmed for a US release in Spring of 2010 on the DS, brought to you in part by Namco-Bandai subsidiary D3Publisher. Occurring two years after the original Blue Dragon, Awakened Shadow will allow players to customize the main character, and will feature recurring characters from the 360 installment.
There is no word on whether the Awakened Shadow‘s boss fight music will be as out-of-left-field as Blue Dragon‘s was.

There’s a Warhammer joke in there somewhere, but somebody already used it on the space elf dudes from Star Ocean 4.
