Monster Farm 2
Monster Farm 2, the sequel to Tecmo's monsterraising RPG (released as Monster Rancher in the U.S.), should be out in Japan by the time you read this. The premise is simple: You create monsters by using music CDs and battle them to climb the ladder to become the world's best trainer. There are over 300 total, both "good" and "evil," and you can train them by making them run, swim or meditate, or earn money by playing minigames via the PocketStation. Tecmo is planning a nationwide tournament and animated series for Japan.
