Awakened Shadow is being developed by tri-Crescendo, the studio behind Eternal Sonata, and they are working hard to Blue Dragon role-playing experience to DS players in the United States in Spring 2010. The game is a continuation of the series, and is set two years after the original Blue Dragon story for the Xbox 360.
For the first time in the series, the player can assume the role of the main character, choose the character’s gender, and customize their look. The controls make it easy to customize clothes, hairstyles and facial details of the main character to fit the player’s personality.
The player can also upgrade equipment, weapons and armor, which are then visually reflected in the character’s appearance. Players can also change shadows in order to tactically overcome the game’s many challenges and formidable bosses. Awakened from a long slumber, the new enemies bear some resemblance to Nene, the defeated adversary of the first game, a conundrum which leads the player, Shu, and friends into a terrifying fight to reclaim the lost shadows and restore balance to the world.
