This one should make Bling pretty happy. A new trailer for Shadow Hearts 3 will be included in the Japanese exclusive Director's Cut re-release of Shadow Hearts 2. The game is scheduled for a summer release and is set in America in the year 1929. You can read more here .


Despite having a ton of competition, Shadow Hearts: Covenant (Shadow Hearts 2 in Japan) was one of IGN's favorite RPGs last year. It was also a reasonable success in the Land of the Rising Sun -- big enough, at least, to convince its publisher Aruze to plan a sequel. That sequel is scheduled for its official unveiling via a special trailer included in the release of Shadow Hearts 2: Director's Cut -- a low-priced re-release of Shadow Hearts 2 featuring a host of new updates.

IGN has some more information on the new game including the first trailer which you can catch here .


Here is some more info on the games story:


That's right, America. Whereas Shadow Hearts Covenant took place in Europe during World War I, From the New World kicks off in America a few later. You can expect to travel to, Chicago, New York and the Grand Canyon, among other American locals.


The game begins as Johnny, a sixteen-year-old detective who lost his father, sister and memory in an accident, accepts a request to find a criminal suspect who escaped from custody. As Johnny approaches the escapee, an illusion-like beast, who appears from a green light known as "The Window," swallows the escapee up. Johnny soon finds himself in a fight against the illusion-like creatures.


Johnny has a female counterpart taking a central role in the story. Shania is a 21-year-old Native American who makes use of spiritual power when she fights. She makes her living by hunting the illusion-like creatures. Sensing a strange power from Johnny, she decides to join him on his journeys. Other characters will, of course, join Johnny and Shania throughout the course of the game.

Some disheartening news for fans of the Shadow Heart series. PS2 Editor Jeremy Dunham responded to a thread about the game being released in the US. His exact words were: "Last time I asked about it (and believe me, I have) Midway representatives said that it wasn't likely but not impossible.".


Ironically, IGN has posted a slew of new screenshots for the game which you can check out here:
