Final Fantasy has seen better days – we know, so it a surprise to see that Square have announced the in-coming DS game The 4 Heroes of Light. The game is boasting “picture book visuals and an easy to control battle system”, which will be a big selling point on the DS. There is a huge market for RPG’s on the DS and this really is a smart move. But, with other RPG’s on the DS out there, what can Square-Enix bring to the table? Some old-school Final Fantasy magic? Time will tell I guess, but until then, check out the screens and the PR and let me us know what you think!
