Wii RPG fans set to level up as Eldar Saga release date announced

Friday 3rd September 2010: Continuing a bumper year of releases, Rising Star Games has confirmed Eldar Saga's 2010 release date as 17th September. The game will fill a niche in the current games climate by appealing to Wii owners who are interested in the RPG format.

Gameplay in Eldar Saga kicks off in character creation mode, with five basic classes and numerous advanced classes, skills, weapons and equipment to choose from. Split into two chapters, gamers start as a man and later take on the role of a female.

The first chapter sees gamers charged with retrieving fragments from a meteorite that released hordes of monsters on the land, wreaking havoc. The second chapter takes place 100 years later when the monsters are close to taking over the world. Playing as a descendant of the hero of the first chapter, gamers join an army intent on destroying the monsters.

Battles take place in real time and gamers can quest together via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection for co-op gameplay at anytime they wish. Jobs also play a big part in the Eldar Saga with the flexible levelling up system allowing the gamer to focus on strengths and weaknesses as they see fit.

"The RPG genre is one of the least represented the Wii and we're confident Eldar Saga successfully fills a gap in this market, bringing classic story-driven gameplay," says Martin Defries, managing director, Rising Star Games. "Developer Marvelous Entertainment is renowned for creating immersive gameplay and Eldar Saga is no exception."

Eldar Saga will be released on 17th September 2010 on the Wii courtesy of Rising Star Games.
