The Ruins of the Lost Kingdom is a freeware action RPG created by a group of veteran Japanese developers, featuring decent 3D graphics and a complicated gameplay system that is guaranteed to please any fans of the genre with an understanding of the Japanese language.

Your avatar can perform standard melee attacks in battle, cast spells, execute combos, rolls, and even embark on adventures alone or with a party of three other heroes in the multiplayer mode.

Understanding the menus can be a daunting task, so here's an easy tutorial for folks who aren't familiar with the language.

Download the game here. [direct download link]

Unzip the file, then double-click on rol.exe. A config menu will appear, just choose next for default options. Once the configuration menu closes, double click on rol.exe again to start the game.

Does anybody know any games thgat are similar to this? (No, I don't mean the Onimusha, Devil May Cry series etc. - I'm looking for some freeware/shareware combo-action :-D)

Lim-Dul: just about all of Tomoshibi's games are like this. The Brave Gear Tribute stuff is quite exceptional as it requires little knowledge of Japanese to figure out what the hell you're doing. :P

A word of warning to the X-Fi folks out there: the audio in this game will more than likely skip forward a lot. Damn shame too. :(

OK - I'm in the process of checking out (read: downloading) BraveGear ~Tribute~... Are there actually any games that are in English or have English patches? From what I can see BraveGear should be easy enough to understand but I'm getting a bit tired of Japanese. ;-)

This does look fantastic. Alas, currently my limited free time won't easily allow to wade to all the Japanese. Not to mention that dialog would be unintelligible. Oh well, I'll have to try and look for this again someday when I know Japanese :P.

This sounds great, but I'm not in the least bit up on my Japanese...

Here's hoping for a speedy translation!
