Ah, Lufia... I can remember both excellent SNES games like the back of my hand (did you know the first game was supposed to come out on the Sega Genesis as well?). Anyway, Natsume has announced that Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals for the Nintendo DS will be in stores on October 12, 2010. I absolutely LOVE the artwork, particularly the more realistic look of Maxim, Lufia and the rest of the gang in this installment. Hmmm... I'm getting those warmly nostalgic waves of JRPG-induced insomnia already! That's a good thing, by the way.
More info and screens are a click away...
