You know, I've never been too interested in any of the previous FMA games, but I have to make an exception for this one. I kinda wish this was a movie rather than a game, since I don't have a Wii and don't plan on getting one. It's probably because the story this time doesn't revolve around some Mary Sue character but rather a member of Aerugo's royal family, which means there will be a political element, and it involves a part of the FMA world that hasn't really been explored in the manga. Claudio intrigues me as a character; does he really want peace, or is he planning something? Using Central City as the setting is a plus too; the game looks worth playing just to explore the place. And overall, it seems to focus more on the canon characters rather than casting them as background in another person's story (I haven't played any of the games, but that's the impression I got from what I've seen of them).
I don't really buy the "it ties into Volume 16 of the manga!" thing though; I don't see how a story like this could fit into that time frame, especially in regards to Scar and Winry. Though they seem to have Riza as the Fuhrer's assistant here. But anyway, if they eventually come out with a novel version of this game, I'll be sure to get it.
