Some more wonderful visuals.
Now this is an exciting prospect an action/adventure/RPG available at the Playstation Portable's launch here in Australia. This game, which is in development at Sony Online Entertainment who have developed one of the biggest RPG series' of all time in Everquest, promises to be something very special indeed. The developers are also responsible for the very respectible Champions: Return to Arms and Champions of Norrath: Realms of Everquest on Playstation 2. This PSP game looks quite similar in terms of gameplay and size so if you've played either of those two PS2 games you'll realise how special Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade looks like being.

The effects really are spectacular.
The story sees you journey to a fantasy world beyond the realms of imagination and engage in battles to save Aven, a timeless city of safe haven and the last remaining stronghold for your people. As a dark threat looms and the gathering of unknown forces grows ever so stronger, heroes have been called and the Brotherhood of the Blade must be formed. It is up to you and your chosen Brothers to venture out into the wilds and barren regions beyond the walls of Aven to unravel the mysteries of this looming peril.

Damn, trapped.
Upon starting the game you will be able to select from four unique character classes including an ancient order of valiant Knights, a foundation of brilliant Alchemists, an order of noble Druids, and a race of feral hunters known as the Berserkers. Each character class is completely unique with differentiated fighting abilities and magical spells. It's fair to say that Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade combines some of the most gorgeous 3D visuals seen on the Playstation 2 with hack 'n slash action. Not only will you have your trusty blade to assist in take out enemies across the 100+ levels set in the wilds of Unataca, but also a wide range of magic spells

Nice explosion...
As with any RPG the collection of items and increasing the stats of your character and this game is no exception with hundreds of items to be discovered during your quest and the ability to fully customise your character in terms of looks and attributes. The game also includes over 150 types of monsters with 50 unique models and textures. The game also features boss encounters which not only look spectacular but will take some time to beat.

Taking on two enemies.
One very exciting prospect is the ability to play this game wirelessly with up to 3 other PSP owners allowing the party of four to work together to complete missions.

Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade is going to be a fantastic title. Don't for a second think that being on a portable gaming system means the game has been dumbed down or shortened - it hasn't. There's many days play in this title and with different layouts every time you play the longevity is endless. Expect this stunning title to be avilable at the PSP's launch in Australia.
