Publisher AQ Interactive has confirmed a Japanese release date for strategy game spin-off Blue Dragon Plus.
Based in the same universe as the Xbox 360 RPG, Blue Dragon Plus will take place a year after the original title, as the world continues to explore the cube worlds that resulted from the planet's core opening.
One day King Jibral and Zola encounter a mysterious dragon shadow at one of the cubes, and after informing Shu they set out to discover more information about this new threat.
While the plot, characters and style of the game will be familiar to anyone who played the original, but the gameplay will be in real time.
Blue Dragon Plus will be released on September 4 in Japan. A publisher for the game has yet to be confirmed for both Europe and America.
