London (1st July 2010) – Square Enix Ltd., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX ® interactive entertainment products in Europe and other PAL territories, today announces LORD of ARCANA ® , a new action game exclusively for the PSP ® (PlayStation ® Portable) system. The timing of the release will be announced at a future date.
In LORD of ARCANA players are plunged into the dark depths of the underworld to fight vast and powerful creatures of legend in their quest to obtain the power of Arcana. Combat is simple yet rewarding, brutal moves can be performed simply and swiftly as you take on a huge variety of stunning and fantastical monsters. A host of gaming design legends have let their imaginations run wild with a bestiary of thrilling creature designs that will prove a fearsome challenge for brave players.
There is a strong emphasis on multiplayer, up to four players can team-up to slay the darkest demons. Doing so can reward you with new items and skills.
