Culdcept SAGA is Official

The sequel to my absolute favorite PS2 game is indeed going to be released stateside for the X360 this summer with full four-player Xbox Live functionality and I cannot wait. I've been holding onto hope that despite the original game's very poor sales (thanks to zero marketing and very few copies made available) that the sequel would indeed make the trans-Pacific journey to our great shores. And it will. And on this note, I can finally get to work...

SANTA CLARA, Calif., – Leading video games developer and publisher NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. announced today that Culdcept™ SAGA will be released this Summer for the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and feature online competitive gameplay via Xbox Live®. The latest entry to the popular card battle series, Culdcept SAGA combines the thrilling luck and strategy of a board game with the depth of a trading card game to create a unique twist on traditional turn-based play. An original storyline developed by one of Japan’s premiere sci-fi writers adds RPG-style elements that offer an enriching experience any player can enjoy.

Here's a video of Japanese gameplay footage of the game. Beware, however, that this is most decidely a Japanese-y type of game. Think Monopoly meets Magic: The Gathering.
