Several years after we first told you about Mythri and its quest for a publisher, a publisher has indeed been found. Variant Interactive, an relatively new face to the world of gaming, has scooped up Mythri and intends to publish the game in December of 2003. Meanwhile, the game will now published on the Game Boy Advance rather than the Game Boy Color. No word on whether or not this will in turn mean upgraded graphics for the game, but Team XKalibur, Mythri's developers, told us that new media would be available soon.
For those of you who may have forgotten, or are just too lazy to click the above links, here's the skinny on Mythri. It's an epic RPG in the Japanese tradition, concerning a manic depressive farmer named Kageru and his quest to save both the worlds of Luna and Gaia from obliteration. The game utilizes manga-style cut scenes, and features an impressive 40 hours of gameplay. Mythri will use a standard turn-based battle system, but where the game stands apart from the pack is its magic system. Now that Mythri has a publisher, it looks like everyone will have the opportunity to try this homegrown RPG for themselves. We'll be bringing you more Mythri coverage as soon as it's available to us, so be sure to check back with us soon.
