Sony Computer Entertainment has announced the release of Rogue Galaxy for the PlayStation. Developed by Level-5, Rogue Galaxy is a space pirate adventure set across various worlds. The development team are best known for their Dark Cloud series.
Already having launched in Japan, the North American version of Rogue Galaxy was enhanced with new features including new weapon creation functionality, a revised combat system, and a new world to explore.
"Rogue Galaxy stays true to Level-5's strengths by combining an expansive story and unique gameplay elements with a distinct visual style, full of colorful characters and extraordinary worlds," bleated Susan Nourai, a director at Sony Computer Entertainment America. "With the additions offered in the North American release, including new environments, updated battle system, and new Insectron mode, Rogue Galaxy is truly a must-own for PlayStation 2 loyalists and RPG fans seeking the ultimate adventure."
In Rogue Galaxy, players follow the story of Jaster Rogue, a young man bound to a simple existence on the desert planet Rosa. By chance, he is recruited by the space pirate Dorgengoa to embark on a treasure hunt throughout the galaxy. Jaster and the crew encounter numerous adventures and battles as they seek out the legendary planet that holds this special treasure: the key to eternal life.
Rogue Galaxy provides access to eight different characters that join the crew throughout the journey. Players control up to three characters at a time and are able to engage in real-time combat that includes chain attacks and an integrated A.I. battle suggestion system. Additionally, Rogue Galaxy provides access to multiple mini-games, including a strategic pet insect battle called Insectron, and players can generate 500 custom weapons and items through a new synthesis gameplay function.
