[i]Fullmetal Alchemist and the Broken Angel[/i] has completed production, according to a press release issued by Square Enix this morning. Aiming to expand on the story on the popular anime series, players will experience fast-paced gameplay during the Elric brothers’s journey to Central. You’ll also be able to “alchemize” objects for use in battle thanks to the title’s versatile battle system.
“The early success of the anime series on Cartoon Network shows the great amount of potential the Fullmetal Alchemist franchise holds in the U.S. market,” said Ichiro Otobe, president and COO of Square Enix, Inc. “We anticipate that American players will find the game to be as addicting as the Japanese fans have found it. The Fullmetal Alchemist franchise, which encompasses comic books, a novel, TV animation, and games, has enjoyed a phenomenal amount of success in Japan.”
[i]Fullmetal Alchemist and the Broken Angel[/i] is a PlayStation 2 exclusive and will hit stores on January 18 for $39.99.
