Lost Odyssey hits on Christmas, Blue Dragon in August

Consider your RPG needs fulfilled come this August. Both Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey – highly anticipated Xbox 360 RPGs – will launch in the US this year.

In a pre-GDC meeting with 1UP, Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi revealed that Lost Odyssey, the second RPG from Sakaguchis Mistwalker Studios, would ship this Christmas simultaneously in Japan and the United States. This simultaneous release comes as no big surprise, as Lost Odyssey seems to be more targeted toward a Western audience. Some of the proof of this can be found in Lost Odysseys lip-syncing; the game is being lip-synced with English actors and the Japanese will be dubbed. Additionally, Sakaguchi said that the U.S. release of Blue Dragon is currently slated for an August release. In line with Microsofts strategy for downloadable content, Blue Dragon has plans for downloadable content — that content includes a new dungeon.

Just when I was starting to wonder when we’d get any major RPGs on the 360, they announce the motherload of both these very anticipated Xbox 360 titles drops this year.

I imagine the lives of 360 RPG gamers will become very interesting come August…
