Characters:

Emmy Honneywell - (referred to as Emmy) is the daughter of Emma Honeywell. Not much is known about her past, except that many years before the game, Emma sent her off to a journey around the continents, as is traditional in the Honeywell Clan: this is considered her rite of passage into adulthood. She becomes a playable character when she joins the generals of Athlum.


Baulson - A mercenary based in Athlum. Cautious, and always prepared. Saving money for someone dear.


Caedmon - Leader of the Silver Falcons. Surprisingly public for a sovani. Dutiful and principled, but despised by those in power.


Glenys - A striking female warrior. Driven and a bit anachronistic. Her heart burns for revenge.

Loki - An infamously savage bandit. Of late has avoided mindless violence, seeking redemption.
Nora - A rough, belligerent warrior who rages against all restraints - as if trying to forget a painful past.
Rhagoh - A frail youth mourning his dead twin sister, Kate. Perhaps there is a way he can find happiness...
Jorgen - An amnesiac desert wanderer. His scarred face hints at a rough past. Is what he remembers real?
Jager - Ex-captain of the Third Commitee. Rough, but open and jovial. Bound to the Remnant Lob Omen.

Battle System Info
TURN-BURST BATTLE SYSTEM with a twist of Quick time events

A New Battle System Requiring a Different Strategy for Each Clash
In the world of THE LAST REMNANT, battles are fought between multiple friendly and enemy unions. Players give commands to unions as a whole, who perform actions accordingly. Orders in battle are given in a command-select style. However, these battle commands will not be set terms like "Attack" or "Magic," but rather specialized orders like “Tear them to shreds!” or “Attack, but watch yourselves!”.

Available commands change depending on conditions like the current battle situation, or the distance and positions of friendly and hostile unions. The player must consider all these factors to craft a victorious battle strategy.

Morale, a Key Factor

Morale refers to the determination and spirit of the characters in battle. Players can check current morale via a gauge across the top of the screen, easing tactics and general battle management. The higher the morale, the more damage is dealt and less damage is taken by friendly unions, and vice-versa. Battle commands also change with the current morale level, keeping players on their toes.

Battle Flow
In the world of THE LAST REMNANT, enemy monsters freely roam the land, where they can be avoided or engaged at will. When battle is initiated, the scene changes to a specialized battle map where friend and foe fight it out. Battles are fought between multiple friendly and enemy unions, groups of up to five characters who fight together. Players give commands to unions as a whole, who perform actions accordingly.

When friendly and enemy unions are close enough for melee combat, they enter a state called Deadlock. Once in deadlock, the two unions cannot change targets, but must fight each other until one has been completely destroyed.

The horizontally-lined icons labeled A, B, C, etc., represent hostile unions. The player can choose which hostile union they wish to attack on this screen. Next, while keeping careful consideration of the placement and conditions of each union, a battle command must be selected. A variety of commands can place focus on dealing damage or executing defensive strategies. Knowing which command is suitable in each situation is the key to winning battles.

Once every friendly union is issued a command, they will take action accordingly. The turn is over when all friendly and hostile unions have completed their assigned actions.

Sample Commands
Attack with Combat Arts! - Attacks, using combat arts.
Dont be afraid to die - Attacks a strong enemy unit.
Slam 'em with status ailments - Attacks, while using arts inflicting status ailments.
Be Our Shield - Deadlocks target, then takes its attacks.
Recover your Health - Stand by, but heals unions that need it.
Cyclops - Summon the remnant cyclops

A highly anticipated game... although the battle system looks very dizzy. I am probably going to throw up with the screen flying around different battles.

Anyone know if it has the option to change the voices to japanese and have english subs kinda like Eternal Sonata?
Posted 10/8/08
Fun fact, the main character, Rush Sykes, has the same VA as Nero from Devil May Cry 4. I recognized him when he yelled in the trailer. Another fun fact, the VA used to be a power ranger. That made me giggle.

Anyway, I really want this game. I'm most probably going to be too broke to buy. That makes me cry. Still, Microsoft is pumping out a lot of good RPG's. Why can't Sony be doing the same thing? -__-

er.. right now, no one knows if the game supports VO language or how many disc it will come (confirmation please, dareka?)
im just hoping that this game runs ok, less loading times, & no disc red errors because the last remnant uses the same engine of lost odyssey!
