Rogue Galaxy is a fantasy-themed RPG which revolves around the game's main character, Jester Rogue. Players follow Rogue as he planet-hops around space, visiting a number of planets, each with their own unique ecosystem populated by various unusual creatures.

From the developers of the critically acclaimed Dark Cloud series, Level-5 once again delivers an unparalleled role-playing game experience with the introduction of Rogue Galaxy™. With its highly anticipated North American release, Rogue Galaxy provides RPG fans with visually stunning backdrops, an immersive storyline with plenty of unexpected twists, and a proprietary combat system that gives the player total control of an epic adventure.

Featuring gameplay with no load times, players will be able to explore the worlds of Rogue Galaxy with seamless transitions. Set in a vast world, this action-RPG allows players to run, jump, swim, climb, and engage in combat real-time, as they explore active environments in a quest to locate a legendary planet. Control up to three characters at a time, each colorfully brought to life within highly detailed environments. In addition to the compelling storyline, gamers will have access to multiple mini-games and be able to generate custom weapons and items by creating their own factory.

At the far edge of the galaxy on the desert planet Rosa, a young man named Jaster dreams of journeying through space. In a sudden turn of fate, he is recruited to join the crew of space pirate Dorgengoa in a race to find a legendary planet that holds the key to the greatest of treasures…eternal life.

However another party, led by the Daytron Corporation, is also searching for the same planet. Jaster and the crew of Dorgenark-Go will have to battle the Daytron Corporation across the vast galaxy as they race to put the pieces of the portal together that will allow them to stake their claim to the treasure.
