So the main characters are standard animu "WE CAN DO IT! NEVER GIVE UP!" and bald space marine. Nice.

EDIT: Those were purely guesses, I have no idea what the characters are like.

doesn't sound too exciting so far
Can you really get excited about a game this far into the future? 2008! C'mon. We'll forget about it by next week until someone goes "WAIT WE NEED A LIST" and then it will be in that list.

-Two prominent characters each created to appeal to a specific territory. Rush Sykes will appeal to JP gamers, and "The Conqueror" for Western Audiences. Game won't force you to choose which character you play.

bald space marines confirmed :lol

I'll reserve serious comments until I actually see the article/media/pics/whatever but so far it's sounding like a massive cash-in job that's meant to artificially appeal to "everyone" and those never work out well.....

In the other thread he said "next generation consoles"

Probably means 360/PS3

I don't think anyone, aside from possibly Gearbox, has ported UE3 to Wii yet (Epic certainly doesn't care) so yes, this is a PS360 game. Considering it's set for 2008, I'd say it was started late last year, at the latest, anyway.

Sounding fairly cool so far, though we obviously need to hear a lot more still.

I wonder who's making this, though -- it's not a FFVII/FFXIII project, which mostly rules out Kitase/Toriyama/Nomura. It's not Ivalice or an FF port, which probably rules out Itou/Minagawa/Kawazu. It's not the online game, so it isn't the Ishii/Tanaka team.

I bet you name him... don't most JRPGs stick you with a set character, but most WRPGs let you name a character? Maybe that's what it is, and why the JP name is set, but the Western character's name is in quotes.

Weren't Mitra a non-human race in FFXI? Is this game from the Enix side of the company?

Those are pretty much the main points. There's more screens than text so I'm going to go off and transcribe the whole article now.

omg omg sounds hot

UE3...I wonder if they have hair, amirite?

Sounds fabolous.

edit: Of course gameinformer gets a lot of exclusives, their deal with GS means they have a large circulation.

This does signify another Game Informer semi-exclusive announcement, or at least it seems they'll get credit for it at this rate. Steadily improving.

sounding like an offline mmorpg doesn't help.

If Wii gets some good stuff Saturday then all is good. If after dominating Japan there are absolutely no new announcements....

UE3 pretty much confirms platform(s).
I have a hard time believing a high profile 360 game is being made by Square Enix or even a multiplat to begin with (when's the last time that happened?) without an actual confirmation
