Only around ten percent of this Sigma Harmonics trailer features actual gameplay from Square Enix's "adventure RPG." Normally, we'd be deflated about this, but not in this instance. That's because the other ninety percent consists of some brilliant cut-scenes, as accompanied by the powerful vocals of Aya Hirano. There's a rather shocking ending as well, when the main protagonist's co-adventurer, Neon Tsukiyumi, meets a grisly end. We can't imagine Square Enix would be silly enough to include a game-harming spoiler in its trailer, so there must be further twists to Neon's tale.
Oh, and are we the only ones who were reminded of Moogles at 1:52?

Why does this reminded me of Chrono Trigger? Well. Not that much. But the scenery at 0:53 remembers me greatly of the prison (you know, the one you escape from).

Whoa, awesome! O_O
The gameplay can be crap, if the rest looks like that it's still a must have. Please say this is not Japan-only..
And yes, moogles.

Despite some naysayers who say this is never going to make it out of Japan, the matter of changing the vertical text-box (the most cited reason for this argument) style is less of a problem than people think. It's imposed over the background, not part of it. In fact, Square-Enix's creation of four tracks for the NA version of TWEWY was probably more of a mess than this would be. I'm confident that we'll see this game in Not Japan eventually.

Also, I counted about 35% of game footage.

Those fighting scenes were amazing for the DS capatibilities... I cannot wait for this game.

Judging by those graphics during the fight, Is ee no reason why something along the lines of final fantasy 7 or 8 couldn't be made for DS! This is awesome!

as much as I sometimes wish i wasn't such a square-enix fanboy, when they do stuff like this and TWEWY at the same time as remaking my favourite old games (CT and FF:IV, still hoping for VI of VII) I just gotta love em. Of course, now I have to convince my wife that I just need one more RPG for the DS.... just one more.....
