While Japanese gamers first visited the fantasy land of Popolocrois through the original 1996 PlayStation game, Agetec, Inc. introduces the Sony series to North America with its first release for PSP. This version of PoPoLoCrois combines the stories of the first two Japanese games into one adventure, and features story-building cut-scenes produced by the team that created the spin-off television series. The game's presentation is colorful and cel-shaded, designed to mimic the look of a cartoon.
PoPoLoCrois is played from an isometric perspective. Combat is tactical and turn-based, similar to that of a traditional strategy RPG. Players guide the adventures of the young Prince Pietoro, whose mixed heritage puts him in a unique position to foster peace and understanding between humans and their traditional rivals, the Ryu. Pietoro sets out to rescue his mother from a curse and it joined by an assortment of powerful and magical friends along the way. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
