Monolith Soft is most known for its work with Bandai Namco on the Xenosaga trilogy of role-playing games for the PlayStation 2, as well as the Baten Kaitos duo of card-based RPGs produced for the GameCube. However, now owned by Nintendo itself, the team has been busy beavering away on the highly anticipated Disaster: Day of Crisis for Wii since before the system was actually released. Could the game be about to hit the market, though?
A reliable source has shed light on a piece of news that whilst classed as a ‘rumour’ at the moment, states strongly that the Monolith Soft-developed Wii title could very well be about to hit Europe as early as 30th May, 2008 for 49.99 Euro / £39.99. But why should this source be believed? Well, he receives retailer information from in Germany and has been spot on with the dates for recent games such as Advance Wars: Dark Conflict (Nintendo DS) and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn (Wii). So could he be accurate once more? You would certainly have to hope so.
As for details on the game, as Wikipedia states,
“Similar to Irem’s Disaster Report and its sequel, Raw Danger, the player must survive many natural disasters. The player will take control of Ray, a former member of an elite rescue task force, and not only will Ray have to face nature, but also an unknown group of rogue commandos who have taken advantage of the catastrophic events and seized an atomic weapon.”

Could we really be seeing this as early as May 2008 in Europe? We shall have to wait and see…
