Another day, another batch of games shipped to stores. Instead of giving them all their own posts, we grouped them, and so far there are announcements for:

Phantom Brave: We Meet Again (Wii)

Phantom Brave is Nippon Ichi Software’s first Wiititle incorporating a free roaming style battle system and a anime influenced character design and story. Phantom Brave is a turn based strategy RPG that incorporates unique battle styles and a hardcore character customization system. Players can create units from a number of monster/ghost categories and power them up exponentially.

There are two main phases to Phantom Brave’s battle system. The first phase is the Confine phase. Marona, the protagonist of this game, can summon ghosts and monsters as battle units to fight for her. However, in order to do so, she must “confine” souls into objects on the battlefield like rocks, plants, and items. Depending on what object you use for the host, the stats of the units you summon will greatly differ. Some units become stronger from certain objects, so knowing your spirits’ characteristics becomes a very important strategic element.
