Breaking: Sands of Destruction is an RPG

Gloomy dungeon? Check. Oddly dressed characters? Check. Bad catchphrases? Check. Extended combat animation, turn-based battle system, and weirdo monsters? Check — check — and triple check. Yeah, Sega’s upcoming Nintendo DS title Sands of Destruction is an RPG. Consider this confirmation.

The Sonic publisher recently released a second trailer for the game. You can view it below the fold, but don’t expect anything mind shattering: Sands of Destruction is as RPG-ey as an RPG can get. If you’re into this sort of thing, well, consider this great news. If you’re not down with this kind of Nintendo DS RPG, well, there’s always Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Mobilized. Huzzah!

Sands of Destruction hits store shelves in January.
