Square Enix continues PSP support with new multiplayer RPG

Handheld gamers to get another dose of JRPG action

Square Enix has announced Lord of Arcana, an action-role playing game in which players can team up with three of their friends wirelessly to defeat giant creatures and seek out a legendary treasure.

Square Enix's official announcement promises customization for characters and weapons, ad-hoc multiplayer, a large spectrum of mission choices, and DLC add-ons. While the game should have a few unique tricks up its sleeve (particularly with Square Enix's talented artists and musicians hard at work on the game) the initial feature list and crop of screenshots suggest a style very similar to Capcom's PSP phenomenon Monster Hunter series.

Square Enix has yet to set a date for the game's release, which gives us reason to believe that we'll have plenty of time (and hopefully, opportunities) to determine whether Lords of Arcana can stay ahead from the monster-hunting pack. In the meantime, please check out the game's official website and weigh in here with your thoughts on this new Square Enix franchise.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
