Blue Dragon DS has been confirmed and a new DS RPG (Kidnapped People i.e. “AWAY Tsuresarareta Hitobito”) has been announced by Mistwalker! Mistwalker is the company headed up by Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi. His company has so far only focused on creating RPGs for Microsoft’s Xbox 360, among them the traditional kid-friendly RPG Blue Dragon and the futuristic epic Lost Odyssey, both games of which we have covered extensively since their announcements and subsequent showing at various game expos. Mistwalker is also developing the Blue Dragon 2 sequel as well as an unnamed Xbox 360 Mistwalker MMORPG.
Nothing about these new DS games is known yet so we’ll have to wait and see how they turn out, but it’s always nice to see new RPGs heading to Nintendo’s extremely popular portable system. Now let’s hope that Mistwalker eventually heads out of Microsoft-land and announces some RPGs for the Nintendo Wii, which could use them more than the DS. — Via Go Nintendo
