- The folks at FromSoftware have announced the official release date for the PlayStation 3 version of [eM] -eNCHANT arM- in Japan. It's currently scheduled for a January 25, 2007 appearance with a retail price of 8190 Yen ($71 US).
Originally developed as an Xbox 360 exclusive, Enchant Arm tells the story of young enchanter-in-training, Atsuma -- a boy destined to become the world's most powerful magician and the guy who is supposed to save the world. On the Xbox, its features included more than 100 different playable and non-playable characters, turn-based combat mechanics, and special unlockable creatures that could be used to assist the party. The PS3 edition will include all of these options and more, including additional cutscenes and story elements.
We contacted Ubisoft, publisher of the American version of the Xbox 360 game (http://ps3.ign.com/objects/852/852004.html) to see if it would be releasing the PS3 installment on our shores as well. Unfortunately, the company had no official comment.
