'Rondo of Swords' (NDS) - 10 New Screens

by Rainier on March 12, 2008 @ 1:13 p.m. PDT

Rondo of Swords is a fantasy strategy RPG that combines an epic narrative, complete with a branching story and multiple endings, with an innovative combat mechanic that takes advantage of the DS touch screen and forces you to add even more strategy and planning to your attacks.

The King of Bretwalde is dead. His passing, both unexpected and unusual, leaves the kingdom in distress. As one realm mourns, another readies for war; the Grand Meir Empire, intent on conquering the world, prepares to strike the empty throne. Taken by surprise, the army of Bretwalde collapses under the vicious assault, and the capital city of Egvard is quick to fall. Only Spanta, the sacred blade, can spare the kingdom of its fate. Free it of its curse and restore honor and peace to the land!

Features:

  • Use route maneuvers to hit all enemies in your path and enhance your attack or defense. Manage your Momentum Counter to gain stat bonuses and control who your enemies target!
  • With the Errand System, you have the option to send idle party members off to run errands or go on quests to level up on their own, which will become crucial to your party’s survival in later stages.
  • Skills are not just skills, but dynamic strategic devices that you choose to build or not. Use skill points to either buy more skills or strengthen what you have!
  • Your decisions will affect the course of the game, determining the character you become and the ending you’ll receive.

Rondo of Swords is an epic fantasy strategy RPG for the Nintendo DS coming to North America on April 15th, 2008.
