Lost Odyssey This Christmas

At a pre-GDC meet and greet this morning with Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi revealed that Lost Odyssey, the second RPG from Sakaguchi’s Mistwalker Studios, would ship this Christmas simultaneously in Japan and the United States. This simultaneous release comes as no big surprise, as Lost Odyssey seems to be more targeted toward a Western audience. Some of the proof of this can be found in Lost Odyssey’s lip-syncing; the game is being lip-synced with English actors and the Japanese will be dubbed. Additionally, Sakaguchi said that the U.S. release of Blue Dragon is currently slated for an August release. In line with Microsoft’s strategy for downloadable content, Blue Dragon has plans for downloadable content — that content includes a new dungeon. 360 fans are in for a hell of a treat this Christmas, with Halo 3 and these heavy hitter RPGS. Sweet Mercy, my wallet is crying already.
