    Details - Square-Enix has created "Estopolis - Land Cursed By Gods" for the Nintendo DS, which came out in Japan about 3 weeks ago. It's a 3D remake of Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals for the Super Nintendo from like 1996.

    Many tout that Lufia II was the best game in the series, with the best music, etc. Seeing that Square-Enix took the rights and have re-released the game in 3D makes my penis tingle in ways that I haven't felt since Super_Megatron dry humped me in 2008.

    The music is second maybe to the days of Final Fantasy IV - VI ... just load that Square-Enix Japan page of the game and listen to "track 2" which is a remake of the popular song "For the Savior".

    First, I was excited, then after that initial second was over, I thought to myself "oh its probably for the DS". All excitement was gone. I have abou 6 square-enix RPGs on my DS, and all of them are unfinished. I just don't put that kind of time into portables. Unfortunately, SE makes too much money on them to ever stop.

    I can't wait until FF13's spinoff DS game about Hope and Vanille's wacky strategy RPG.

    Not even you can ruin my OMGWTFBBQ moment, Valkysas.

    I always joked that Square-Enix should get the rights to Lufia. And when Neverland Company was absorbed by Square-Enix, I thought there could be a chance. The fact that they have done just that blows my mind. This was, you don't understand, *MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE RPG GAME EVER MADE*. This is my remake of Final Fantasy VII that so many of you wish Square-Enix would do.

    And no, I didn't know about it, I've been doing this thing called "dating girls" and "working full time" and "going out with friends" ... that whole Transformers message board thing is slowly slipping past me :p

    If not for that really shitty thing happening in politics yesterday, Sunday would be considered one of the best days of my life what with this game, the girlfriend, and all the plans made with friends for the summer.

    The fact that this is a remake instead of a new game makes me simultaneously joyous and disappointed.

    Was Neverland absorbed as part of Square's acquisition of Taito, or separate?

    Because of my craftyness, I've already downloaded the DS soundtrack which includes the newly re-created tracks by the God of music himself, Yasunori Shiono. That one fool, what's his name, Nobo, he's got nothing on Shiono-san.

    For what it's worth, Natsume announced not long ago that Estpolis, aka "Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals" is going to be released in the United States in Q3 2010 for $29.99 for the Nintendo DS, and will be playable at E3 in a week and a half.
