Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals is coming out this fall on DS courtesy of Natsume.
Natsume recently announced that they are bringing Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals to North Ameirca in fall 2010.
Curse of the Sinistrals, a DS remake of the Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals, originally came out in Japan in February 2010. It is a prequel to the original Lufia game, and follows the story of the ancestors of the first game's main character and the origins of the war between mankind and the Sinistrals, who are the four legendary harbingers of doom.
Originally, Lufia II was a turn-based role-playing game, but in the remake of the 1996 Super Nintendo version, the game is being changed into an action RPG. Additionally, the remake will feature 3D graphics and voice acting.
Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals will make an appearance at E3 in June, and will retail for $29.99 when it comes out in the fall.
