I have read some sites though like IGN and places where people translate it as Wave Energy. IMO, Spiritual Force sounds much cooler.

Actually, it was usually translated as "energy waves" in the Super Nintendo version of Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals, and it was called "energy flow" in Lufia & the Fortress of Doom. Lufia: The Legend Returns called it "spiritual force" was we all know.

Spritual Force sounded pretty good to me. But then again, in Lufia 2 where they spoke of energy waves I didn't mind that either. It made pretty good sense to me. Except "Golfbeweging"/"Wave Motion", which always sounded cool, yet odd in my humble opinion.

The site got updated again! : D

In the story-section, there's now a part for Iris, as well as in the character-section. I like the voice-acting, but in some screenshots, she looks a bit to happy, I hope she'll be melancholy enough in the end - like I always imagined her. XD
In addition, the world map in "Story" shows now new kingdoms.
And they made a new part in "System", I think it has to do with the wave devices/matrix system in some way; it looks like a grid. I hope they'll add enough strategy and depth to the fighting. ^^

Hehe, I had the same feeling. Those screenshots give me the feeling she's not the mysterious Iris we know and love. ;) But we'll see.
Wait, voice acting? *rushes off to the site*

Eh... Bound kingdom moved to the east, and "flower" Mountain is in the South-east now.
But I noticed that if you rotate the map, the locations look more like where they were in Lufia II =P (What I mean is Parcelyte being south of Bound Kingdom, and "flower" mountain on the north-east part) I wonder where the other cities will be =P

Map from the site

map from the site again (but I changed the names in English)

The same map rotated

Lufia RoL map


Btw I'm calling that mountain "flower" mountain for now, since that was how it was called in the snes version, but according to google translate it's called "Mountain of ice fog" in the new game.


And just for fun, my old map I made before the locations were announced =P ( and the map turned out to be totally wrong =P )

Image

Edit:
In addition, the world map in "Story" shows now new kingdoms.

Some people mentioned that Parcelyte is a republic with a president now (President Miles).

Image

Bound Kingdom is still a kingdom =P
And I hope, if/when there's going to be an English version, they'll keep Alex's name as Alex because
Alex's japanese name is アレク which could be translated as Arek =P (or Alek/Alec)
Arek's japanese name is アレクディアス (Arekdias/Alekdias) btw.

Well, I don't think anyone would confuse "Arek" Alex: Image
with Arek the Absolute =P

No it didn't. But that's probably an image from GameFAGS.

That's pretty much what I figured out before any info was given, guess we were wrong xD

Gotta wait for more fantranslations of the new info :\

Parcelyte is where I thought Bound Kingdom would be, and Bound Kingdom went to the east continent =P

I'm starting to think that the map doesn't quite show the whole thing. I mean, they said there would be even more cities than in the original game. Either there's more map beyond the limits of that image, or the continents are way bigger than the maps shows.
