FFXII to touch DS

Pint-sized PS2 epic in development

Reports are coming in from Japanese magazine Shonen Jump that Square Enix will release a spin-off version of PS2 hit, Final Fantasy XII on DS.

Titled FFXII: Revenant Wings, the RPG uses kid-ified versions of lead characters Vaan and Penelo, probably in an attempt to appeal to the younger DS gamer.

The magazine also reveals for DS 'It's a Wonderful World', another Square Enix RPG with character designs by Tetsuya Nomura, famous for his work on the Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts series.

Further details, including how each game will implement the touch-screen, are expected to be revealed at the Tokyo Game Show, which kicks off on September 22.
