Shipping today: Heroes of Mana, Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles - Ring of Fates, Dragoneer's Aria & more


Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates is the sequel to Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles for Gamecube™. The game takes advantage of both the local wireless and Wi-Fi capabilities of the system.

The new installment of Crystal Chronicles uses a similar control scheme to the Gamecube™ version, with A to use Commands; Y to pick up items (and allegedly enemies); and the B button to jump (which adds a layer to strategy, with multitiered levels in the 3D environment).

Most of the gameplay takes place on the top screen. The touch screen shows maps, as well as stylus access for different weapon attacks. Special attacks are performed by pressing the right trigger button, the screens will swap allowing enemies to be attacked just by touching them with the stylus. If done correctly, chained attacks can be performed.

In multiplayer mode, the player's class greatly influences lifespan. Five character classes can be picked including Warrior, Archer, White Mage, Black Mage, and a support class. Each has specific roles to be fulfilled in the multiplayer mode.


Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles - Ring of Fates for Nintendo DS™ is available today, shipping at US$ 48.90 only. Also in stock is Hori's Accessory Set. The Limited Gemini Edition (with NDS™ Lite Console) is expected later this week. Also on preorder is the Original Soundtrack album.

Last but not least, you may want to pick up the original Gamecube™ edition, currently discounted at US$ 24.90 only.



From the publisher: Heroes of Mana breathes new life into the vaunted Mana franchise, taking the beloved series into an entirely new dimension. Generals plan, plot, and strategize their way to victory on the battlefield. Command an army of heroes, creatures, and rabites with the Nintendo DS touch screen and experience an all-new perspective on the ever-evolving battle for the Mana Tree.

Heroes of Mana goes much farther than a traditional RTS with incredibly rich and detailed characters on the battlefied, each with histories and a relationship to the overall story of the Mana franchise that is deep and complex. In fact, there's a story recap feature to help you get to know everyone and their place in the story.
