Namco announced today that it has signed a publishing deal with WayForward to bring its GBA exclusive action RPG Sigma Star Saga to retail in June 2005.
"Sigma Star Saga is an action-packed adventure that continues Namco's tradition of delivering the highest quality RPG experience, but now in the palm of your hand," said Jeff Lujan, the Handheld Business Unit Director at Namco Hometek Inc. "This game's great storyline, intense action, amazing sound and vibrant graphics all come together to create an original experience that's not to be missed."
An epic space battle RPG, Sigma Star Saga combines the exploration of an RPG with an action-packed shooter battle system, and best of all, a branching storyline with multiple endings.
Humanity is struggling to survive against the Krill onslaught. Sent in as a double agent, players must discover the mystery of six planets singled out in an intercepted message as important to the enemy's efforts, and help defeat the Krill from within before humanity's time runs out! By exploring the galaxy of Sigma Star Saga on foot, players can discover new parasitic Krill weaponry and gadgets in order to equip themselves and their spaceship. Additionally, you can collect up to 50 kinds of "Gun Data" and then combine them in simple combinations to customize and create their own unique weapon.
See? It's stuff like THIS which is why I bought the GBA. An original game by an established company.
There just needs to be about 90% more of it.
