Nostalgia Coming to Nintendo DS in September

Posted by Corbie Dillard

Tecmo and Ignition Entertainment bring some new JRPG goodness to Nintendo's DS.

Tecmo and Ignition Entertainment will be bringing a brand new Japanese RPG experience to Nintendo's DS system in September called Nostalgia and they were kind enough to send us over some brand new screenshots of the game in action.

As you can see, the game has quite a few obvious Final Fantasy influences in its presentation and looks to be a solid addition to the DS RPG library when it's released this September.

Below is a snippet taken from the press release that accompanied the screenshots that gives a bit more information about the upcoming game.

From the developers who brought Final Fantasy III and Final Fantasy IV to the Nintendo DS, this new epic handheld role-playing game will capture the imaginations of gamers by immersing them into a world filled with treacherous airship battles, elusive treasure hunts, and action-packed dungeon combat.

Set in the 19th century, Nostalgia will take players on a quest through a variety of real-world locations including Tokyo, London, New York, Cairo, South Africa and Russia as players explore and discover a world yet unknown…

Nostalgia also includes a robust mapping system and handy notebook feature that will help players keep track of all the people, monsters, customizable airships, quests, and other items encountered while adventuring.

With high quality 3D graphics that push the envelope of the Nintendo DS’ visual capabilities, briskly-paced gameplay and a multitude of trap-filled dungeons to explore, Nostalgia is set to become the new handheld RPG experience that DS owners won’t want to miss!

We'll have more information on Nostalgia as it becomes available, as well as a full review when the game is released. Until then you can take a look at the round of new screenshots we got our hands on this morning below.

Mrrrf. When is Tecmo going to make a new Deception game? Preferably one with Splinter Cell-esque online play?

I loved Skies of Arcadia! Ramirez kicked my butt though. I need to go back and finish that...

I'll keep this one on radar, since Ignition picked up Muramasa and I love Mercury Meltdown: Revolution, but I'm more interested in Sands of Destruction. Hopefully SoD doesn't have to compete with Nostalgia.

I know I'm a bit late, but this game looks pretty sweet. Any attempt to regain some of that old-school magic is fine in my book. Plus, the title is awesome.
