Last week at E3, Atlus announced that it has plans to publish Code of Princess, an “action RPG brawler” in North America this fall. This is a very unique hybrid RPG, much like Theatrhythm Final Fantasy is a unique RPG rhythm game.
Developed by members of the team that produced Guardian Heroes for the Sega Saturn, Code of Princess features four playable characters in the game’s singleplayer mode, but also lets you play as enemies and even villagers in its multiplayer mode. You can either battle with your friends or against them via local online or Nintendo’s online network.
Here’s what Tim Pivnicny, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at ATLUS, had to say:
Developed by an all-star team of industry veterans, Code of Princess is unlike anything else available for Nintendo 3DS.
Fans of action will savor the game’s combat, which is loaded with satisfying chain attacks and plenty of depth–both in terms of attack options and also quite literally in the sense that battlefields employ a three-railed design, letting players move forward and back as tactics dictate.
Fans of RPGs will relish the ability to level and improve their characters, converting their gained experience into boosts for the stats that best suit their play style and tactics. This appealing amalgam of game designs is wrapped in a beautiful package, boasting lovingly rendered and animated characters and eye-catching flurries of punches and kicks. With something for virtually every kind of old-school gamer and with an esteemed pedigree to draw upon, Code of Princess is certain to be one of the most anticipated Nintendo 3DS games of the year.
Pre-ordering Code of Princess at select retailers will net you a Sound & Visual Books, containing a collection of art from Kinu Nishimura, who created the game’s world, and soundtrack music from ACE.
empty, a figure company, made a figure of the main heroine Solange back last December, and it’s being re-released this August. I thought I recognized the character when I first saw screen shots, and it turns out I had seen her figure months ago without knowing the origin. To say she’s a little exposed is an understatement.
