More Lord of Arcana Screens Than You Probably Ever Wanted

Lord of Arcana is an upcoming Square-Enix PSP title that seems to run in the direction of the Monster Hunter franchise. The game is looking pretty spiffy, judging by these screens and artwork. The game takes place in a world called Horodyn. There’s also an ancient stone known, not surprisingly, as “Arcana”, which holds great magical power (this, as well, isn’t surprising). The world is also home to many powerful monsters, which are fought by warriors known as Slayers, and these Slayers seen the Arcana.

I’m not sure if you play as a Slayer, or what, but if it is anything like Monster Hunter it is likely to acquire a cult following. I guess all those Pok√©mon players from years past had to grow up and play something, right? This game will hit Japan sometime this year. Let’s not even try to guess when it will make its way to Western regions. Check the screens after the break.
