Konami RPCG

This fall Konami is releasing a Roleplaying Card Game based on the Xbox 360 game Blue Dragon. Players will apparently battle each other using skills, gaining abilities and leveling up. While I do find the idea intriguing, I'm just not sure if I like the idea. Naturally I will check this out when the game is released and more than likely add it to my collection of games never played.

I demoed this at GenCon and will post a brief review of it sometime soon. The short answer is that the game has nothing really to do with roleplaying at all, and even the leveling up aspect doesn't feel like RPG leveling.

I figured it would be a bit hard to mix games like that. I mean how can you possibly get the same feel? Stil if this helps younger players move from CCGs to RPGs it could be a good thing for the market/industry. I'm surprised that WotC hasn't tried it yet.
