Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood Preview

The editors at Kotaku have put together a short hands-on preview of BioWare's upcoming Nintendo DS RPG, Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood.
Despite being on the compact DS, the game seemed to pack most of the features one would expect to find in a role-playing game including lots of wandering, dialog trees, puzzles, leveling up and even an equipable pet of sorts.

Over the years I've found myself losing interest in role-playing games, but this slight blending of genres, a move that gets more involved in the process and makes the title feel slightly more like an action game, has me thinking that this would be a great game to take with me on a trip.
