239w ago - It appears Trinity Universe isn't the only RPG on the way from Nippon Ichi Software.
NIS America also revealed at their press event that the long-rumored RPG, Last Rebellion, will be coming exclusively to the PlayStation 3.
The game is in development at Hitmaker, the same guys behind the Crazy Taxi games.
Players can roam around the world field and make action movements like in an action game, but once you enter battle, you engage the enemy using a turn-based system. The game features the ability to target different body parts on an enemy to weaken that area (such as hitting their legs to slow them down).
The game revolves around the characters Nine and Aisha. Nine is a Blade, whose specialty is physical attacks, and Aisha is a Sealer, who uses magic spells to attack & seal enemies. Players will be able to switch between the two in battle, strategically choosing which attacks to unleash first.
Last Rebellion is due to release in Fall 2009.

253w ago - Electronic Arts has confirmed plans for a sequel to the critically acclaimed Wii exclusive Boom Blox, which will again be created with input from movie director and producer Steven Spielberg.
Though the publisher says the original release's sales met expectations, analysts were disappointed with the title's performance, and a sequel had been in some doubt.
Rumors, however, emerged of a follow-up last November. The original game was created by EA Los Angeles, as a result of work initiated by the secretive, now-defunct Blueprint division.
Originally intended as the first of three games created with input from Steven Spielberg, the status of the other unannounced titles is unclear. The new game will be developed by EA Casual Studios and is due for release in North America and Europe in spring 2009.
The sequel is called Boom Blox Bash Party, and will focus on multiplayer features, as well as include 400 new levels. As before, the key mechanics of the game are inspired by party game favorite Jenga, as players manipulate and knock down bricks using a realistic physics engine.
The game will also feature downloadable content, including the ability to create and share levels between users. It is also implied that users will be able to play and compete in levels online.
