As an Earth Federation double agent, combine “gun data” to customize powerful weaponry, then take to the skies to discover the mystery of the Six Planets and defeat the evil Krill in the first ever space shooter role playing game.

"We pride ourselves on making "industry firsts" at Namco, and we are proud to add another as we ship 'Sigma Star Saga,'" said Jeff Lujan, business director with Namco Hometek Inc. "We are now the first to bring this kind of game to a handheld platform, a true combination of the rewarding aspects of a deep RPG and the thrilling action of a space shooter."

In "Sigma Star Saga," players are thrust into the midst of a decades-long interplanetary struggle. The engaging storyline of love, betrayal and revenge spans the entire galaxy and features multiple endings. Acting as a human double agent deep in enemy territory on a mission to subvert the Krill armada from the inside, players will need both brains and brawn to survive. As a member of the Allied Earth Federation, players explore their surroundings and outfit their character with powerful gadgets crucial to their victory.

When encountering an enemy, the action takes to the skies in fast-paced side-scrolling space shooting segments. Using more than 50 unique Gun Data items they discover during exploration missions, players can customize their ship with more than 15,000 combinations of upgrades for use during battle segments.
