We were recently fortunate enough to sit down with the producer of Square Enix’s upcoming PSP actioner Lord of Arcana, Takamasa Shiba, at the firm’s PSP Showcase in Tokyo.
The game – which is completely different to card-based predecessor, Lord of Vermillion – is much like Capcom’s Japanese super-smash, Monster Hunter; Shiba-san looked as though he’d been getting a good Monster Hunter grilling from the assembled press on the day.
Shiba talked about about the rivalry with Monster Hunter, the game’s lack of online co-op, Zombie Dragons, what he wants from the PSP2 and the rise of portable gaming.
Lord of Arcana launches in Europe on February 4 and the US on January 25. It released in Japan last October.
