Ray Force has announced they will be porting their RPG series, Startling
Odyssey to the PlayStation. The first title, Startling Odyssey 1: Blue
Evolution, originally released on PC-Engine in October of 1993, will be
released in Japan on May 27th. Blue Evolution features over 500 monsters and
an additional 15 minutes of movies over the original version.
The second title in the series, Startling Odyssey 2: The Demon Dragon's War, was
originally developed for the PC-Engine (released in October of 1994). A Sega
Saturn re-release was planned and was later canned. Now it has been given a
second lease on life with a port to the PlayStation, though a date was not
given for its release. In Startling Odyssey 2, players are charged with
finding the five pieces of the mystic sword.
Startling Odyssey 3: Holy War of the Millenium, the latest sequel, is scheduled
for a winter release.
There is no word yet on whether the titles will see US release or not.
Considering some of the content is questionable (we've been advised not to post
the "services" cinema AVI), it is probably unlikely it will come to the US.
Special thanks to Bt Garner (who has some awesome mailing lists) for original
release dates and the Startling Odyssey I PC-Engine CD Cover.
