Gametrailers’ Lost Odyssey preview: JRPG fans, get ready to change underwear

For fans of epic, old school, turn-based Japanese RPGs, Lost Odyssey couldn’t come quickly enough, but you’ve still got some waiting to do yet. Luckily, Gametrailers has a preview running that may satiate your appetite for a wee moment. 

All I can say is, as one of those aforementioned fans, I am positively drooling for this, but maintaining caution just in case it disappoints. That said, it looks gorgeous, has a promising story and is boasting some kick-arse music, which is really flavoring that caution with some heady optimism.

I do wonder why Japanese RPGs seem obsessed with casting female-to-male transsexuals in the lead role, though.
