First screens of Soul Nomad

First screens of Soul Nomad

Koei sends the first screenshots of its tactical role-playing videogame Soul Nomad (Soul Cradle Sekai o Kurau Mono in Japan), another child from the Nippon Ichi family. You will be in command of a powerful character, Gig, but will have to build an army because relying to much on his powers would destroy the world. Available in June (America) on the Playstation 2.


About SOUL NOMAD

When an enemy emerges that is far too powerful for the good guys to defeat you do the only decent thing and sell your soul to the devil. Well, actually to someone worse than the devil. You strike a deal with your old arch enemy. And in return for some truly awesome power you’re giving your soul away to him one little piece at a time. How much power you wield and how much of your own body you give up to the ultimate incarnation of evil is totally up to you.

With a full army at your disposal battles are now an exciting combination of vast grid based battlefields and nerve shredding real time combat. By making the best use of your battlefield recon reports you have complete freedom to place your squads and take advantage of the terrain and ultimately inflict embarrassing defeat upon anyone who stands in your way.

You have total freedom to create your own army of terror and bestow each unit with their own unique talents and abilities. You can even try to press gang innocent townsfolk into your army. The entire world is your playground and you can be as good or as bad as you like.

Soul Nomad is the latest Strategy RPG spectacular from Nippon Ichi and follows in the footsteps of hugely popular titles Makai Kingdom, Phantom Brave, and the critically acclaimed Disgaea series.

Wait, what? Are you talking about the Euro version or a sequel, because this game's been out in the US for months now. I own it.

Yeah this is the same game as you own Synce. This is the reality of european RPG publishing.

We're just happy if we don't get a squashed PAL50 port that is slow and jerky.

Proverbial "we" of course, I import mine. :)

Actually, quite a few of us do. I really want Bandai or Atlus to man up and bring SRW Original Generations to the US (Atlus brought over SRWOG1 and 2). Licencing shouldn't be an issue since they are all original designs.

Well, I want 'em!!
This game looks very interesting, and being able to do anything you want makes it even sweeter! I think this one will sooner or later land into my collection... still have to finish valkyre profile... which is a tough game *doh*...

    Nietzsche @docLEXfisti: I also enjoyed Justice League. The CGI is poor at times like the villain but the character chemistry is very well done. Very funny too! (10 Hours ago)

    docLEXfisti We have Overwatch, watch my son play it sometimes... it just doesn't appeal to me. Rainbow 6 might be worth a look... (13 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Free weekends in OW and R6 if you want to play some good shooters. (13 Hours ago)
  • docLEXfisti
    docLEXfisti Got to play a bit today: you appreciate how shooting feels in Halo 5 even more if you try out SWBF2, mediocre at best - this is made by D.I.C.E.? (13 Hours ago)
  • docLEXfisti
    docLEXfisti It was fluent and over quickly (like GotG2), which is a good sign... (not like Civil War i.E., where I wanted to turn off after 40 mins). Different ppl, different tastes I guess ;) (14 Hours ago)
