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.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
