Sigma Harmonics' magnificent cut-scenery

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?

Warm your anxious heart with hot Sigma screens

Fresh from the creative minds of Hiroki Chiba and Yusaku Nakaaki, these new screens for Sigma Harmonics show off some of the character designs and artwork in great detail -- always good to get the fans salivating over yet another stylish RPG for the DS.

The game is well underway and has its own website to drown viewers in oodles of crazy Japanese flair, so don't miss out on any tidbit of gossip on this promising portable bad boy. Sigma Harmonics should be hitting the stores in Japan on August 21, so start brushing up on your Japanese. Hit the gallery for the full range of new images!

Sampling more fashion disasters with Sigma Harmonics

Famitsu has another five shots of Square Enix's "what not to wear" trainer "adventure RPG" Sigma Harmonics, featuring the usual bonkers fashion choices and some decent-looking 3D sections. Naturally, since the likes of Final Fantasy III became a part of our lives, "decent-looking 3D sections" are the very least we expect from Square Enix, who seem to have mastered 3D on the DS better than most.

Also, as we're on the subject of Sigma Harmonics, Siliconera reports that Square Enix just registered the game's title and logo at the USPTO. Does that mean the title is definitely coming stateside? Well, it's a very strong possibility -- let's leave it at that for now. More shots are past the break.

Check out Sigma Harmonics' harmonious website

We know how much you kids love your Squeenix, so we hope you're intrigued by the company's refreshingly new IP, Sigma Harmonics. If you're not, you should still check out it's Japanese website. Even though most of us here at DS Fanboy can't read a lick of Japanese, we've never wanted a game so much before because of an official site. The art looks all kinds of gorgeous, and clicking on the "Story" link makes you feel like you're watching a trailer. We're also fond of the song choice -- it somehow puts hints of noir into a whimsical melody.

Last but not least, there are some wallpapers to download, if you're into that sort of thing.

Square Enix reveals new 'adventure RPG': Sigma Harmonics

With all the remakes and ports that seem to come our way courtesy of Square-Enix, it's nice to see a new IP from the Final Fantasy factory. Announced in this week's issue of Japanese magazine Famitsu, Sigma Harmonics is an "adventure RPG" promising a murder-mystery narrative, an interesting combination. According to initial translations of the article, the story takes its cues from Persona 4's (PS2) suspense-filled plot, and the game will be presented book-style with the DS turned sideways.

Surprisingly, Sigma Harmonics is already 60% complete and will hit stores in Japan as soon as this summer! Check the convenient gallery below for scans of the Famitsu pages.
