Sporting around 150 playable characters, this Tri-Ace developed action RPG with hints of Star Ocean and Wild ARMs 3 puts you in control of either Jack Russell or Ridley Timberlake, both 16. Three other party members, connected to the main character through a "Link System", will join you in battle at all times.
Square Enix has now announced that Tri-Ace smash hitRadiata Stories will be released in North America on September 9, 2005 for an MSRP of $49.99 (USD). Radiata follows the story of Jack and Ridley as they meet under different and dire circumstances to make a difference in interactive environments and a real time battle system. Sporting 150 playable characters and a colossal world, it's sure to cause a ruckus come September.

Contrary to expectation by many Tri-Ace haters and comfortably inline with true experts like myself and Rachel, Radiata Stories is performing well in Japan since its release yesterday, selling 152k copies on the first day and beating Resident Evil 4. Square Enix does indeed have a stranglehold on that market. The game also garnered impressive scores from Dengeki PS2 last week, with a review spitting out three 95s and a 90. No NA or European dates have been given yet, but it's more than likely that they will be eventually. Meanwhile, feel free to complain about wanting a Valkyrie Profile sequel.1
As previously reported, Japanese pop artist Nami Tamaki has been signed to perform the Radita Stories theme song. Says her publisher Sony, "many heard about her rumors and were attracted to her instantly. She is the up-and-coming star, not only as a singer, but in various other genres too. Nami always wanted to be a singer, so she eagerly went to dance schools. She can dance, she can sing, and she looks great, so it wasn't long before people took notice of her at various different auditions."
