The Magic Obelisk Release Date and Screens

The first original title in a decade from a legendary Japanese developer
GAME ARTS today announced that the action-adventure game The Magic Obelisk will hit the store shelves in North America via WiiWare on December 28, 2009. Featuring over 30 stages, The Magic Obelisk revolves around a tree spirit named Lukus. Like other tree spirits of this world, Lukus is gifted with the ability to transform into trees and is eager to use his powers to help people around the world. He is looking for the perfect place to take root and become a tree, but unfortunately the only way he can move is by shadows, a journey he cannot complete himself. Players are tasked with helping Lukus reach his goal by taking charge of Popo, a light spirit who can shine his light near the mysterious Magic Obelisks to create shadows. When Popo shines his light near one of these obelisks, he can create shadows and connect two or more shadows to help Lukus move through the level. Fourteen screenshots found their way in our gallery.
