New insights into FF XII: Revenant Wings

I finally got my DS lite yesterday (I know, I'm way behind the times--so sue me) and what better game to look forward to now that it's in my grubby little hands than Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings?

I've been drooling over screenshots of this little beauty for a few months, but until now I can't say I've fully understood how the darn thing will play. This new trailer, released today by Square, does the best job I've seen thus far. Looks like the game uses an active-battle system similar to its big brother, FF XII on the PS2.

Personally, I'd prefer it handle more like the old 8- or 16-bit Final Fantasies, but I'll take what I can get. Regardless, I'm in love with the game--especially knowing it features some old FF tunes re-invented for the DS and displays graphics that in more ways that one remind me of Final Fantasy Tactics (one of my favorite games of all time).

Now Square just needs to announce a release date for us U.S. gamers. And while they're at it, let us know when Heroes of Mana, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Rings of Fate and Final Fantasy Tactics A2 will be showing up on our shores...
