It looks like tactical RPG fans on PlayStation 3 will have to wait a little while longer for this one. Rainbow Moon, developed by SideQuest Studios, has been pushed back to the first quarter of 2012. But to help tide you over until next year, SideQuest has shared some of its most recent work on Rainbow Moon.

The story follows the adventures of Baldren in his quest to seal up a dimensional gate that opened up after he was warped to Rainbow Moon. Now stranded in unfamiliar territory, and with hordes of monsters turning this world into a nightmare, Baldren must gather his strength, find new allies, and find a way back home.

Rainbow Moon looks to be another in a long line of bright and colorful turn-based strategy RPGs. The developers are also boasting a story that lasts over 30 hours, but has yet to share any details on the gameplay systems. We'll have to wait and see what kind of splash SideQuest Studios can make with its first entry in the RPG genre.

Impressions: Rainbow Moon (Vita)

Strategy RPGs seem to thrive on handheld systems. While many are released on console, it often takes a port to a portable build for gamers to take notice. With a sequel already in the works, EastAsiaSoft has seen fit to port last year's Rainbow Moon from PS3 to Vita, and the experience remains mostly intact from the console version. This is both to its credit and its detriment.more
