Blue Dragon Preview and Trailer

The first of two epic RPG projects for Microsoft by Mistwalker , the studio founded by Square-Enix's and Final Fantasy fame Hironobu Sakaguchi. Set for release in Japan on December 7th with a 2007 relase planned for the rest of us.

Blue Dragon featuring characters by designer Akira Toriyama (Dragon Quest, Dragon Ball, Chronoquest), tells the story of a young boy named Shu who has special adventure with his two friends and a mythical blue dragon.

The setting is a planet that is abundant with ancient ruins from a past civilization. The main character is a boy named Shu who is only 16 years of age. A few of his friends will be tagging along on his adventures such as Kluke and Jiro. There is drama between the three as Jiro has feelings towards Kluke and feels Shu is his rival trying to earn Kluke’s affection. The rest of the cast is completed by Zora, a 20-year old mercenary who doesn’t place any type of trust in anyone, and Marumaro, who is only 14. Marumaro is from the “Devi tribe” and he expresses himself through his awkward dances.

Official Website set to go live on October 7th
