Square Enix has a surprise RPG for the handheld gamer. No, it's not on the PSP or DS. Song Summoner: The Unsung Heroes is an iPod exclusive RPG with a rather unique twist. You'll be able to transform your music collection into "Tune Troopers" that you can use in battle. Even cooler: you'll be able to level up your "Tune Troopers" simply by listening to the same song you created them on your iPod. You'll need the help of all your best MP3s, as you fight the Mechanical Militia and save your brother.

The iTunes download, available today, will retail for $4.99. The game will be controlled exclusively through the iPod click wheel and will be compatible with iPod nano with video, iPod classic and fifth generation iPod. While we haven't had a chance to play the game ourselves, we're certainly itching to give it a try. If you download Song Summoner, tell us what you think.

Interesting. Thoughts?

Hmm... I may have to break down and finally buy an iPod game. It'll give me something to do when bored (and not carrying my DS).

I don't own an i-pod but my roomate does and I'm thinking of paying for him to download it just to try it.

What pisses me off is that it's always for the 'older' iPods, and not for my iPod Touch. After buying my Touch I went to the iTunes store to check out what cool games I could play on it, only to find out that it wasn't able to play any. Not compatible with it's hardware. I'd love to play a version of Pac-Man with tilt-sensitive controls. But they haven't developed it yet.

I may buy this game just to see what kind of attack the Tune Trooper made with King Missile's "Detachable Penis" has.

It is almost July 11. You can keep it together until then. Then you will have all these games on the Touch that the older iPods do not.

I always thought Square would be the one come up with a new revolutionary RPG.

But I didn't have this in mind. :(
