Looks like Softmax's Korean PS2 RPG "Magna Carta" will be getting a sequel on the Xbox 360 sometime this year and the Japanese might get their hands on it first. One more "next gen" title for Microsoft's console and the PS3 remains in the dust with a tiny library.
I've still to finish the first game "Tears of Blood" yet on the PSP. Probably because I was working for a site as one of two game reviewers at the time and had so many samples I had to get through and review at the time. Then again, there was just something about the game that wasn't very compelling. Maybe it was the plain battle system and very generic dialogue.
Don't really like Kim Hyung Tae's character designs. The females look a bit too masculine and the poses look very unnatural. The in-game character models look worse in this sequel... But if you like his art, check out the official Japanese site for some wallpapers.
So for those of you interested, the story this time is based around your typical hero with amnesia in the land of Rantlzheim, Juto who ends up spending peaceful days living together with Melissa, captain of the local defence team. However, when the northern army invades, those days are at an end and Jute makes the decision he will join Queen Luzephilda (voiced by Aya Hirano) in the south to fight.
