Niche, sprite-based RPGs already have a hard enough time selling these days without the worry of big-name titles completely crushing their market presence. That's why NIS America has decided to delay Ar Tonelico, a game about a young man seeking adventure and his singing female sidekicks, until February of 2007. Originally, it would've come out on the same day as role-playing juggernaut Final Fantasy XII. The move is a sound one and hopefully more people are willing to give Ar Tonelico a chance when it isn't buried under an avalanche of other games.
