Tactical RPG is usually a niche genre that rarely gets mentioned in the western gaming media. But the japanese developer Hyperdevbox decided to take the gamble to bring this genre to our beloved Android plattform and to the rest of the world and while doing that they delivered us the biggest Android game that we have seen yet in every way (size, playtime, artwork, soundtrack, you name it). This is a highly upgraded port of a full PS 2 game, and since it is the first of it’s kind, this may be the first Android game that really needs a review to help you decide, if you want to fetch over the relative high price of roughly 10,50€.
Today on the Google Developer Day in Tokyo, Hyperdevbox will show their new game Spectral Souls, a tactical rpg in the style of Final Fantasy Tactics, for the first time.
According to a posting on Androidforums, Spectral Souls will have over 1GB on Data, over 50 music tracks and video cutscenes.
Spectral Souls: Resurrection of the Ethereal Empires is already available for PSP (it was released 2006 in North America), but the Android port will have Highres graphics.
The game is planned for a release at the end of this year.
A video that shows the game in beta state was also released, check it out:
