Haruhi on PS2

Good news for you Haruhi worshippers (i.e. losers). A Haruhi game will be released for the PlayStation 2, called Suzumiya Haruhi no tomadoi ("The Confusion of Haruhi Suzumiya"). The objective seems to be to create a SOS-dan RPG under Haruhi's orders (as Kyon-kun, who else?). The game is developed by Banpresto (Super Robot Wars quality? Let's hope) and game art is, fortunately, handled by Kyoto Animation themselves.

I'm not sure what the gameplay will look like exactly, for all we have is this obscure magazine scan. But it looks like it will involve both oldschool-RPG mechanics (an Earthbound-esque battle system can be seen in that screen in the middle of the image) and swords and magic and shit, as well as your typical Japanese text adventure found usually in dating sims and hentai games.

I was really hoping for a dancing game though. Even if it's just Hare Hare Yukai over and over again I would play it for 70 hours. But this sounds ok too.

Oh, and there seems to be a freebie that comes with the game, a posable Haruhi figure (in battle outfit?)
