A retro-styled RPG/TD title will soon hit Microsoft's Xbox LIVE Indie Games service, and of course it has me jonesing for an Xbox 360.

The name of said game is Mamotte Knight, which apparently translates to Protect Me Knight.

Here's the kicker: It's being made by Ancient, Yuzo Koshiro's development studio. (Koshiro is best known for creating the soundtracks for such 16-bit classics as ActRaiser (and its sequel), the Bare Knuckle/Streets of Rage series and The Revenge of Shinobi. More recent additions to his resume: 7th Dragon and Etrian Odyssey I, II and III.)

Here's how Mamotte Knight looks in action:

According to andriasang.com, Mamotte Knight will be released soon ("this spring," specifically).

Do you think Xbox 360s will be down to $99 by that time? Nah, I don't think so either.

Looks like an insane game. I'd love to play it. And that whole blowing-into-the-cartridge thing...was that the opening to the game or the opening to the video? Like...is that a common thing that company does for all its videos, or is that unique to this game? Either way...love it!

As far as I can tell, the whole blowing-into-the-cartridge thing was just created to be part of the trailer -- as the game is supposed to be styled on old Famicom/NES games. Sorry I didn't mention that in my post :)
