Chocobo's Mysterious Dungeon
It had to happen sooner or later. After successful roles in several of Square's world-famous Final Fantasy games, the series mascot, Chocobo, is about to star in his very own du ngeon RPG.
Chocobo's Mysterious Dungeon is actually the third game in the "Mysterious Dungeon" series that was, ironically, originally a spin-off of Enix's mega-popular Dragon Quest games. While the first two games starred different main characters and story lines, the basic premise was the same--you explore deep dungeons in search of treasure and whatever else lies within, while building up your character and fighting enemies. This time, the game will have more of a Final Fantasy feel to it (with call spells, characters and magic spells from the series, etc.), but the core gameplay will remain the same. In addition, Chocobo will be joined by his loyal sidekick Atra--a moogle.
One unique aspect of previous Mysterious Dungeon games is that each time you entered a dungeon, the layout would be completely different from the previous entry. Whether or not this trait (which adds to replay value tremendously) will remain in Chocobo's Mysterious Dungeon or not remains to be seen, but you can be sure that the quest will be huge and the gameplay deep nonetheless.
There are no plans for a U.S. release just yet, but you can bet that Sony won't let as hot a property as this one slip through their grasp.
