Lufia Estpolis The Lands Cursed By The GodsAfter years of waiting, a new Lufia game is on the way! Famitsu has revealed that Square Enix is working on Estpolis: The Lands Cursed by the Gods for a yet undisclosed system. Don’t let the whole Estpolis thing throw you, in Japan the Lufia series goes by Estpolis. Lufia & the Fortress of Doom and Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals were called Estpolis Denki and Estpolis Denki II there.

Almost all of the previous Lufia games, except for Lufia: The Ruins of Lore, were developed by Neverland and published by Taito. Square Enix, Taito’s new owners, will be publishing Estpolis: The Lands Cursed by the Gods and since Famitsu says the original development team is back, that probably means Neverland is on the job as well.

And, that’s it for now. The official reveal of Estpolis: The Lands Cursed by the Gods will be in the November 19, 2009 issue of Famitsu. What a tease. Now we have to wait a week to learn what console it will appear on and when it will be released.

This is such fantastic news. The Super Nintendo Lufia games, Lufia & the Fortress of Doom and Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals, were classic RPGs and among the best releases for that system. Even the Game Boy Color game Lufia: The Legend Returns wasn’t too bad. I liked it. The Game Boy Advance entry, Lufia: The Ruins of Lore, disappointed me though.

Odds are, we’ll see Estpolis: The Lands Cursed by the Gods in North America. Every entry in the Lufia series, except for the cell phone game, has been released in North America. I’m hoping it will appear on the DS, PSP or Wii.
