From the publisher: Famed game producer Hironobu Sakaguchi of Mistwalker and developer Artoon present the highly anticipated Xbox 360™ exclusive Blue Dragon. Featuring the character design of Akira Toriyama of Dragon Ball Z and music by Nobuo Uematsu of Final Fantasy, Blue Dragon is an epic role-playing game that centers on a young boy named Shu and several of his friends.

These unlikely heroes possess the power to control phantom shadows that mirror the actions of their masters, giving Shu and his comrades miraculous strength and magical powers.

The warriors can create and develop their combat styles by utilizing different types of Shadow Change, including Sword, Assassin, and Power Magic. Shu and his friends must use the shadows as weapons and wield their skills to save their world from impending doom.

Encountering various people on a planet where numerous ancient ruins remain, the characters and their shadows travel through a world full of mysteries and illusions, where the slightest touch can cause reactions of unparalleled magnitude.


Mistwalker's popular Japanese RPG hit Blue Dragon is now available as a multi lingual Asia release version at US$ 44.90 only. This version contains selectable Japanese or Korean voices, combined with selectable English or traditional Chinese subtitles and menus. Please be reminded that this release version is NTSC/J encoded and only suitable for Xbox360™ consoles sold in Asian territories.

Update (May 23rd): We can confirm that this Asia release version is compatible to Japanese version save games. In other words, if you already own the Japanese version of Blue Dragon, you can now continue playing at the point you have previously saved and maintain your entire inventory, now in English (or Chinese) language.

Blue Dragon is also available as full Japanese language Asia release at US$ 19.90 only. Also make sure to check out the Original Soundtrack album with music composed by mastermind Nobuo Uematsu.
