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.
