Magna Carta Announced For The Xbox 360Magna Carta Goes 360 Banpresto and Softmax to bring RPG sequel to next generation. Japanese support for the Xbox 360 keeps on building, with a new pledge coming today from Banpresto. The company has already announced its first Xbox 360 game, a next generation entry in the Super Robot Taisen series of anime-based strategy titles. Today, the company announced a second title: Magna Carta 2. Banpresto will publish the RPG, which is being developed by Korean developer Softmax. Details on what we can expect of the title are still locked away somewhere on the Korean peninsula, but Banpresto has been able to commit to a Japanese release in the year 2007. The first Magna Carta hit Japanese PS2s in November of 2004, going on to sell upwards of 200,000 copies. The game primarily drew attention as being the first original RPG PS2 RPG developed by a Korean developer. Atlus will be bringing the original Magna Carta to America later this year, and with success, the sequel will likely follow.
