More video of the game in action!

The kind folks over at Nintendo were nice enough to send over the official launch trailer for their brand new DS RPG Glory of Heracles.

You can check out the video below along with the official press release information to go along with it. We'll also have a full review of the game up shortly.

For centuries, the mighty heroes and wondrous tales of ancient Greek mythology have mesmerized children and adults around the globe. Now, with the Jan. 18 launch of Nintendo's Glory of Heracles™, U.S. consumers can encounter these legendary characters and fantastical settings in a new video game for the hand-held Nintendo DS™ and Nintendo DSi™ systems. Already popular in Japan, Glory of Heracles marks the North American debut of an engaging, action-filled series that packs boundless appeal for core gamers and casual players alike.

Glory of Heracles immerses players in a rich role-playing adventure written by Kazushige Nojima, known to gaming fans as one of the creative minds behind classic games such as FINAL FANTASY® VII and the original Kingdom Hearts. Combining original storylines with familiar characters and scenarios from Greek mythology, Glory of Heracles invites players to assume the role of a noble hero who washes up on the shores of ancient Crete with no memory of who he is or how he got there. To restore his memory, players must roam the countryside in search of clues, obtain powers from the great gods and battle a slew of monsters and villains along the way. Historic locations such as Athens and Sparta are among the dazzling 3-D environments players can explore as they interact with fascinating characters and work to recover the hero's identity.

"There are many gamers who view role-playing games as the ultimate genre," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "And in Glory of Heracles, they're going to find a new world, a mix of memorable characters, imaginative storytelling and epic battles. New gamers will also find that this title is a great way to get acquainted with RPGs."

Available exclusively for the portable Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi systems, Glory of Heracles lets players choose between the stylus or the control pad and buttons to control the heroic protagonist's movements. The game's turn-based adventure is enhanced by an extensive glossary that provides background details on a wealth of characters and locations. Players can also complete optional mini-game challenges on the touch screen to help power up for intense battles.

I still haven't picked up my copy of the game yet. I hope to have it by the end of this week. The game does look really good.

I'll have this review up by this weekend. Just got a bit bogged down with the digital downloads this week. Sorry about that.

Glory of Heracles is $29.99 CDN.

This is the best $30 I've spent on a Nintendo DS game by Nintendo!
