Japanese Xbox boss Takashi Sensui has said that the Xbox 360's 2008 game push "may" be spear-headed by a sequel to Mistwalker RPG Blue Dragon.

In an interview with Jiji Press, the Japan home and entertainment boss said that Microsoft is aiming to double its number of Xbox 360 games in Japan to 500 next year and hinted that a sequel to the Sakaguchi RPG might be the front runner.

Of course it's not the first time we've heard strong rumours of a follow up, Mistwalker boss Hironobu Sakaguchi reaffirmed in April that he has strong desire to kick off the second Blue Dragon.

"We're in talks with Microsoft about development of a sequel," the Final Fantasy said at a Korean press conference. "Specifics aren't finalized, but there's a possibility that it will be produced as an online title."

There are also reports of a Nintendo DS version in the works, which is a no-brainer considering the handheld's license to print money in Japan.

Good news for RPG fans, as the first game was a brilliant - if overlooked - genre entry in the Xbox's sparse catalogue of role-playing games. Lets hope they get the follow up to Europe before 2009.

sorry but NO.
this game should go in the 'biggest disappointment for 2007' catagory.
