The latest issue of Famitsu (via IGN) has some new revelations concerning Marvelous Interactive's upcoming Wii title Project O, now entitled Ousama Monogatari (translation: King Story).
The development staff has previously worked on titles such as Final Fantasy XII, Dragon Quest VIII and Harvest Moon, which fits perfectly with the description of the game. As a sick boy, you find a magical crown that turns you into a king. From there, you give orders to your group of followers and build up your town into a vast kingdom. You will also be required to lead troops against kingdom-razing foes such as fire-breathing dragons.
The RPG aspect of the game has not been fully revealed; all the staff has said is that it is present and that you will be privileged to "dramatic story sequences" by communicating with various characters / residents. King Story is due out in 2008; a trailer is expected to be shown at this year's Tokyo Game Show.
