Falcom aiming to ship new RPG at NGP launch

JRPG specialist Falcom has announced it intends to join the ranks of launch NGP publishers.

Andriasang reports a Dengeki PlayStation leak stating Falcom hopes to have a new RPG ready in time for the NGP’s launch.

Falcom’s third party support for Sony’s new handheld was confirmed in January.

The venerable Japanese developer is behind a number of seminal JPRG series including Dragon Slayer and the eternal Ys. These are things you may not have heard of, but someone is very excited. Trust me.

Falcom’s newest PSP title has just been announced as a new The Legend of Heroes game with the Japanese title of Eiyuu Densetsu Ao no Kiseki and the tagline “the story that begins with Zero goes to a deeper blue”. Right.

Sony’s NGP is expected to launch at the end of the year.

Thanks, Destructoid.
