Original Story
Revenant Wings tells the story of Vaan and Panelo, two of the main characters from FFXII. Vaan is 18 years old in the game, and has just fulfilled his dream of getting his own plane. He keeps himself free of politics and family life and travels the skies as an air pirate. The 17-year-old Panelo serves as his navigator.

If you're anywhere near as excited about this title as we are we know you'll be sure to check back regularly for more updates just as soon as we get our grubby mitts on them, but for now, enjoy!

Thanks to Game Watch for the images!

As usual, very cool, the graphical style is pretty unique, 2D/3D sprites with 3D backgrounds, awesome. The battles also look very different. A bit of a departure for the FF series, here's hoping it doesn't end up like Dirge of Cerberus...

By the way, that Trailer that you linked to is broken... Smilie

is this game real-time or just as boring as any other tactics game?

It's real-time, playing rather like Secret of Mana on the SNES from initial reports.

The game looks truly fantastic right now - can't wait to see more of it Smilie Thanks a lot Karn!

You guys prefer this as real-time...!? Christ, I prefer it as more generic RPG. Funny how preferences differ so much from person to person.

I'm yearning for good old RPG on DS rather than a swashbuckling shallow action, which we seem to see too much of on handhelds.

I'll still like all though.

Just updated this with the first gameplay trailer. Wow, looks absolutely fantastic.

I'm so glad Square Enix and Nintendo are back to being best buddies again.

Looking really good, i'll get it when i get my DS.

Silence is the loudest noise we could possibly hear.
