The DS will receive the second entry in the series and will feature an expanded strategy RPG experience from the original.
Atlus announced early last week that Luminous Arc is receiving a successor on the DS later this year in the form of Luminous Arc 2. The game, like its predecessor, is a strategy RPG and includes a whole lineup of new characters as well as a few returning favorites.
Along with new characters the game will feature the same hand drawn graphics found in the original, as well as a compelling soundtrack from Yasunori Mitsuda (known for his work with the Chrono series) and his Procyon Studio. Online and local multiplayer support, multiple endings, and a redesigned user interface will also be featured in the upcoming sequel.
When the game releases on November 18, all copies will be bundled with the game's soundtrack CD and will feature a special oversized box, all for an MSRP of $39.99.
