One of the 31 titles Microsoft pimped at a Japanese press event today was Magna Carta 2, a role-playing game from developer Softmax set to launch this August out East. Judging from the Japanese debut trailer, Magna Carta 2 will feature such role-playing game innovations as: Brooding anti-heroes; effeminate gentlemen; hair that slightly covers one eye; and what we can only assume is supreme magics.

No, you haven't played this game before ... but you probably played something just like it three times this generation. Okay, to be fair we have no idea what's going on in the completely Japanese trailer but it all looks a bit familiar. Maybe we're wrong or maybe the bad J-rock got to us. Watch it after the break and decide for yourself.
