Yep. Luminous arc 3 is out in japan and will be coming out shortly in 2010. Gameplay's almost the same. But intermissions unlike LA 2 have an effect or two on the main character's special attacks. I'm not quite sure but the new tweaks to gameplay, but there is a new intermission format added to the game. Hard to explain now, just try the game once it's out and translated in english or get the jap one, lol. I will be waiting eagerly like a rabbit for this one.

OOC: soz for doulb epost but anyway here's the updates on the new LA 3!

LA 3 updates (as in changes from the previous la series):

New system of doing after breaks. Instead of the usual 'select character to talk to', you get to move the character around and interact, of course, there are still the after breaks talks and stuff... just need to make sure you are talking with the right character at the right time. [hard to explain. really sorry ppl if explanation is poor] also, you can choose to train up your character's stats during after breaks. There is a lot more that i woudl want to say, but i can't explain them well, so soz!

Weapons: No longer go to shop, new weapon available. Now new weapons are available at a weapons shop. but they will only be available once you made them. How? With the loot collected from the monsters. [New feature as well. Monsters now drop some sort of loot] So be expected to grind quests here and there.

Unlockable sub events: Done by interacting with certain NPCs at certain chapters. Figure out the combinations ;).

Elemental charts: Now there's a elemental compatibility added as well. To explain this, this would be let's just say water attacks fire. Water does 30% more dmg then usual. Same thing for fire.

Story so far:

Not quite sure about the beginning, but apparently, a witch resembling fatima (yes, apparently in some world far away during events of LA 2, she saved the world...) saved the world somehow.. sicne then the world has revered magic and particularly those who are able to use it to the fullest potential, the mage knights [roughly that's what some ppl call them for now]. Then a group of monsters called the 'fairies' appeared not long before the story. Since then the mage knights have dedicated themselves to fighting the fairies. [Seriously, fairies? LOL]
Refi (main character) in this war against the fairies has lost his dearest childhood friend, lily. In that process he is able to activate his innate powers as well. Thus in the present day, he is now entered into the magic academy where students with magic potential study... That's where everything begins!
Soz ppl for little info, but since i'm playing the japanese version... i'm a bit lost with the japanese kanji. So a request to any japanese reading this with a copy of LA 3, please help me with the updates! Oh btw, please do discuss about the upcoming La 3 here.
