A remake of Atlus/Nippon Ichi's 2000 PlayStation title, Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure is a music-based RPG, where cutscenes are replaced by musical numbers, complete with vocals, high-res 2D sprites, and more features than ever before.

If music be the food of love, then prepare to fall all over again for Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure. Available for the first time on NDS, this musical RPG classic has been redeveloped to utilise the interactive capabilities of the handheld console.

Fast-paced and easy to understand, even for those new to the RPG genre, the game features a simplified yet intuitive dual screen battle system, and an all-new easy to follow navigation map. The game’s simple and fun gameplay style, loveable characters that will sing and dance during key moments, and the quality of the anime art style, will make Rhapsody ~A Musical Adventure~ appeal to many types of gamer.

John Yamamoto, president and chief executive officer of Square Enix Ltd. comments, “Following the recent announcement for Disgaea 3 and Disgaea DS, we’re delighted to be growing our relationship with Nippon Ichi by publishing Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure across Europe and PAL territories. The game looks set to appeal to gamers of all ages.”

Marl Kingdom, the land of hope and dreams!

This story follows the adventure of Cornet, a young girl who can communicate with puppets. Cornet is just like any other girl, dreaming of her perfect prince and hoping one day to fall helplessly in love... Then one day, she hears a rumor that the Royal Family of Marl Kingdom will hold a contest to find a suitable wife and Princess-to-be for the dashing Prince Ferdinand. Cornet and her best friend, a puppet named Kururu, set off on their quest to meet and fall in love with the prince of Marl Kingdom. But before she gets that far, Cornet will encounter gangs of evil witches and sorcerers.

And so, Cornet’s “Operation Snag a Prince” is destined to become more complicated than she ever expected...
