New Estpolis Game Turns Out To Be Remake

Remember when we said that there is a new Estpolis game in development? It’s actually a remake of the 1995 SNES game Estpolis Denki II, also known as Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals. This time, it will be for the Nintendo DS and it’s a 3D action RPG with full voice acting. At least they left in the puzzle-driven dungeons.

The bottom screen of the DS will show the map and face panels for party members. Players can change characters by tapping a face panel with the stylus. The top screen shows the action. Players can execute attack combos by switching between characters during battle.

Estpolis will be released in Japan on February 25. There has been no word whether the game will make it to other regions. If it comes stateside, who wants to bet that Johnny Yong Bosch will voice Dekar?

Square Enix Revives Lufia, Still No Hope for Aerith

Square Enix has announced via Famitsu that it will be reviving Taito’s Estpolis series, also known as the Lufia series in North America. The new game, known only as Estpolis, is being developed by the same team that created the first game in the series back in 1993. The game’s logo includes the words “The Lands Cursed by the Gods,” which may or may not be a subtitle for the game.

The release date and the platform haven’t been announced, but more information will be available in next week’s issue of Famitsu.
