Magical Starsign sparkles

Today, Nintendo announced the release of Magical Starsign, a brand-new RPG title for the Nintendo DS. Controlled only with the stylus, the game follows the students of the Will O' Wisp magical academy on an adventure to rescue their missing teacher. This isn't any simple jaunt down to the closest dungeon, though - this quest will take the cadre of kids throughout the bounds of their solar system as they encounter massive enemies and rescue their classmates from certain doom.

With its blend of sci-fi, anime and fantasy elements, this game certainly stands out from a visual perspective, if nothing else.
