Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Announced and Screens

Battle action game based on one of Japan's top-selling anime and manga franchises
Releasing these screenshots, NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe S.A.S. announced that Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is scheduled for launch across EMEA in summer 2010. The story of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood follows the adventures of the Elric brothers, two young alchemists cursed after an ill-fated attempt to bring their mother back from the dead during which Edward suffered the horrifying loss of a leg and arm while Alphonse's soul was ensnared in a medieval suit of armour. The game features a host of additional customisable playable characters with points earned in battle used to upgrade their special powers and abilities. The fights go down in a series of different battle arenas where players can flex their spectacular alchemist abilities, use the terrain's topography strategically to gain the upper hand, and judiciously launch special Combination Attacks with their battle partner to turn the tide of battle. The Multiplayer Mode lets between two and four players co-operate or fight against each other via ad hoc wi-fi to find out once and for all who has the most powerful alchemy of all at their fingertips.
