Lost Odyssey demo to debut at TGS

Demo of eagerly awaited 360 RPG to debut next week, Mistwalker CEO Hironobu Sakaguchi reveals

A demo of the eagerly awaited Xbox 360 RPG Lost Odyssey will debut at next week's Tokyo Game Show, ex-Square developer and Mistwalker CEO Hironobu Sakaguchi has revealed.

The latest Weekly Famitsu reveals that the TGS demo will take about an hour to complete and will allow players to play through the opening scenes of the game, which Famitsu calls a "seamless" integration of movie and gameplay. According to Sakaguchi, the graphics in the demo are representative of about "80 per cent of the finished game's quality," and the game system is present in its "most basic form."

Mistwalker's debut Xbox 360 title, Blue Dragon, is due out later this year, but Sakaguchi is vague regarding the exact arrivals of the company's other titles: "We are working on Archaic Sealed Heat-- or Ash -- with the goal of completing it during first semester next year," he said. "With regard to Lost Odyssey and Cry On, although we won't know for sure until they actually launch, they are progressing steadily. We also have several other plans under way, which I will talk about some other time."

We'll have more on Lost Odyssey - including all new TGS media and info - as it arrives.
