With just under a week left before the Electronics Entertainment Expo opens its doors to gaming industry press the world over, the house that Sonic built has announced the titles that it will be showing off on the floor. RPGs, along with their respective official descriptions, are as follows:
Phantasy Star Universe
This enormous game offers two complete RPG experiences - a single-player action-adventure spanning multiple planets, and a robust online multi-player component. In offline mode, this action-RPG offers more than 40 hours of gameplay, an emotionally engaging story, traditional cut scenes, and strong character development. In online mode, players are given the opportunity to travel with a squad of other adventurers, enter urban sprawls teeming with hundreds of players, and build their unique avatars into powerful warriors.
Shining Force Neo
Moving away from the methodical gameplay of prior Shining Force strategy-RPGs, Shining Force Neo is a fast-paced action-adventure. Real-time combat creates a deeper sense of personal involvement in battles, and the presence of more than 90 enemies on screen at once ratchets up the grand scale that the Shining Force games are known for.
RPGamer will be on hand at this year's E3 to bring you all the latest news, developer comments, and impressions of the above games and more.
