Ubisoft To Distribute Lost Magic

Today Ubisoft announced that it will publish and distribute Lost Magic, the Taito-developed role-playing action video game for the Nintendo DS system in North America and Europe this spring.

Lost Magic brings role-playing games on the DS to a new level, capitalising on the innovative and unique gameplay abilities such as casting spells with the stylus and the global connectivity of the Wi-Fi mode,” said Tony Kee, vice president of marketing at Ubisoft. “Ubisoft is proud to continue in its tradition of bringing cutting-edge games to gamers worldwide.

In Lost Magic, designed by renowned art director Yoshiharu Sato, peace in the world is challenged by a new evil force. The only hope lies with the wizard Isaac and the seven magic wands left behind by the creator. Monsters wield unimaginable power in this realm, and as Issac, the player will use the stylus to unleash magic spells and command numerous monster squads in magical battles.
