Theres going to be a game of Lost. You know it. We know it. Quite what that game will involve, though, is a mystery of far more, well, Lost proportions.

So, we mined our collective memories and came up with
Recently, we got our first look at the third (fifth in Japan) installment of the Legend of Heroes series: Legend of Heroes III: Song of the Ocean. The game follows several central characters, including: McBain, a grandfather looking for one last adventure; Forte, a young man taking up the troubadour lifestyle of his grandfather; and Aida, a possible love interest of Forte.
