Jeanne D'Arc coming to PSP
Many Catholics and non Catholics alike know who is Jeanne D'Arc (Joan of Arc to us english men). Level 5 will relive that historical campaign of the Maid of Orléans with a twist of fantasy.
La Pucelle as the frenchmen called her during that time, participated on the 100 year war of France and England. Branded as a heretic and burned at the stake on May 30, 1431, Twenty-five years too late, in 1456, she was declared both innocent and a martyr by the inquisition. It ruled that the original trial had been tainted by fraud, illegal procedures, and intimidation of both prosecutors and defendant. The "Maid of Orléans" was beatified in 1909 and canonized a saint on May 16, 1920.
Level 5's game Jeanne D'Arc that will be released on the Sony PSP on August 30,2007 (tentative date), a turn-based tactical RPG mixed with fantasy and history, Jeanne D'Arc is a promising title.
