Four party members? Magic footwear? Flying monkey creatures? Why didn’t the Wizard of Oz get turned into a JRPG sooner? Well, at least XSeed and D3 Publisher have teamed up to finally realize author L. Frank Baum’s true vision.
Titled The Wizard of Oz: Beyond the Yellow Brick Road, the game’s a fairly straightforward JRPG with one twist: everything is stylus-controlled — even movement, which is controlled via a virtual trackball.
The game’s coming to North America this fall. Unfortunately, XSeed doesn’t publish outside North America, so Beyond the Yellow Brick Road’s release elsewhere is still up in the air.

The “RPG Title Announcement Media Event” will take place between 4-5:15pm Japanese time, or 8-9:15pm BST. The announcements – yes, plural – are for Japanese eyes only but as we all know, “you can’t beat the internet”.
