'Yggdra Union' (GBA) Announced

by Rainier on Feb. 3, 2006 @ 10:18 a.m. PST

Yggdra Union is a card-based strategy RPG for the PSP. For years, strategy RPG fans have accepted repetitive, non-interactive battle sequences as the genre standard; few games have dared to break the mold. Yggdra Union blows through, shattering the mold into tiny, unrecognizable bits.

"Riviera: The Promised Land was one of last year's best-selling handheld RPGs, and we expect Yggdra Union to build on that success," said Sammy Matsushima, Project Lead for Atlus U.S.A., Inc. "The developers at STING amaze us with their ability to deliver character design and compelling gameplay that rival the quality of RPGs for home consoles, let alone other portable games."

Ruled by a royal family said to be descendants of the gods themselves, Fantasinia is a prosperous and peaceful land -- until the peace is shattered by the invading forces of the Empire of Bronkia.

Led by the young emperor Gulcasa, who seized control of the Empire in a brutal coup d'etat, Bronchia's Imperial Army cuts a bloody swath through the people of Fantasinia and the Royal Armies of King Ordeene.

Amidst the chaos, a young woman escapes from the besieged capital of Partina -- a woman with innocence in her face, and a sword in her hand.

The girl's name is Princess Yggdra, the last surviving member of the royal family; the sword is the Gran Centurio, a legendary blade once wielded by the founder of Fantasinia, and passed down through generations of royalty.

Fleeing to a remote valley at the southern tip of the continent, Yggdra meets up with an unusual thief named Milanor, a chivalrous young man destined to help her liberate the people of her kindgom...

Key Features:

  • Strategic gameplay in which decks of "Tactical Cards" are used to determine battlefield movement, special attacks, and more!
  • Character design by manga artist Satoko Kiyuzuki and card design by Sunaho Tobe, character designer of "Riviera: The Promised Land"!
  • Over 30 attack, defense, and support skills!
  • Join forces with other allies to form an unbeatable Union!

Yggdra Union has not yet been rated by the ESRB.
