Sony Computer Entertainment has released some new information on another of their upcoming Playstation 2 RPGs, Popolocrois Story III. The game will use a new 'cell shading' technology, which displays 3D CG somewhat like a hand-drawn, animated cartoon. Popolocrois Story III is a direct sequel to Popolocrois II; the main character, a young prince, is the son of the hero of the earlier game, and the storyline takes place some fifteen years after the events of Popolocrois II.
Promising a story based on romance, friendship, and adventure, and boasting new graphics technology, Popolocrois Story III is a game that should be worth looking at. It is currently scheduled for Japanese release in Spring 2001, but there has been no North American release announced at this point.
