The Wii really doesn’t have a lot of choice when it comes to RPGs. The Playstation and Xbox get Fallout and Elder Scrolls and Mass Effect and Final Fantasy while the Wii gets left out in the cold, devoid of experience and accumulated gold. Well, Rising Star Games is attempting to fill that gap with Eldar Saga, a game which is just about ready to land on our gentle shores.We’ve got character creation with five classes and numerous advanced classes. We’ve got lots of weapons and armor to collect and wield/wear. We’ve got two chapters, one in which you play as a guy who has to retrieve fragments of a meteor that has unleashed scores of monsters upon the land and one in which you play as a gal who is the descendant of the guy who 100 years later has to join an army and finish what he started. And hey, we’ve got wi-fi co-op so that you can get your quest on with a buddy.
“The RPG genre is one of the least represented the Wii and we’re confident Eldar Saga successfully fills a gap in this market, bringing classic story-driven gameplay,” says Martin Defries, managing director of Rising Star Games. “Developer Marvelous Entertainment is renowned for creating immersive gameplay and Eldar Saga is no exception.”
Eldar Saga fills that gap on September 17th. In the meantime, check out the screens below.
