Here's a little more insight into a game that I'm dying to get my hands on, A demo should be available by the second week of October on the Playstation network store
The info below comes straight from the Sega website.
The Release date is listed as NOV. 11th
BLiTZ (Battle of Live Tactical Zone) System
Combining turn-based RPG gameplay with 3rd person action games, the "BLiTZ" battle system allows players to battle with direct control in action sequences just as in action games, while also maneuvering through the vast world with strategic moves typical of tactical RPGs.
The battle is turn-based between the Player Phase and the Enemy Phase.
In each Phase, strategically choose your unit in the Command Mode and enter battle to move your unit in the Action Mode.
The Command Points (CP) determines how many units you can move each in each Phase.
The Action Points (AP) represents the mobility range for each of your chosen units in Action Mode.
Equipped with standard caliber rifles, capable of covering a lot of ground.
Equipped with high-power machine guns and excel in close combat with average mobility.
Equipped with long-range sniper rifles, they are less effective in melee combat with lower defensive abilities.
Equipped with large spear-like cannons, they can inflict great damage to tanks and have enough defense to withstand heavy attacks. Low mobility makes them vulnerable to enemy foot soldiers.
Low offensive and defensive abilities make them impractical as fighters, yet are supportive as they restock ammunitions, remove landmines, fix sandbags, and recover tanks.
