Obscure Nintendo RPG reborn as another obscure RPG

A few screenshots of Nintendo's Eternal Chronicle sneaked into the release list from Nintendo of Japan's October conference, and then it was never heard from again. The RPG has resurfaced now, as a sequel to a franchise that was never released over here: Herakles no Eikou (Glory of Heracles). With original publisher Data East dead, the rights to the Greek-mythology RPG series have been grabbed up by Paon, developers of Donkey Kong: Barrel Blast on Wii.

The conversion is the second step in a minor resurgence for the franchise -- Herakles no Eikou IV for the Super Famicom was announced for Virtual Console release this month.
