More PS3 SRPGs, Tears to Tiara gets a date

Speaking of delays, remember the PC to PlayStation 3 translation of Tears to Tiara? Aquaplus was supposed to release Tears to Tiara: Kakan no Daichi (Wreath of the Earth) last year. Japan finally gets it on July 17. At this time no international release has been announced and there is no guarantee we will ever get one.

 

Unfortunately, for importers expect Tears to Tiara: Kakan no Daichi to be text heavy. The game is split into two parts, strategy RPG combat and an adventure mode. Both will require reading.

 

I’m not 100% certain this is actual footage of combat from the PC version since I didn’t take this video, but the battle flow in the clip looks quite different from a standard simulation RPG. The sole combat screenshot from the PlayStation 3 version above makes Tears to Tiara: Kakan no Daichi look like any ordinary strategy RPG.

I wonder if Aquaplus is revising the battle system…

    Yes, they are actually making a new battle system for the PS3 remake which plays more like a traditional SRPG. The new version of the game doesn’t look anything like the old one, with the new art style and all.

    @ToruHideo – Ah! Thanks for clearing that up. From what I seen it looked like Aquaplus was going a different route since the PC version appears to be very point and click style. I guess that just wouldn’t work on a PS3.

    The battle system was way too easy in the PC version. You just needed to set the characters on “Use your Judgement.” and watch them do all the fighting for you. Even in “Impossible” mode, only the first 2 battles are a bit challenging, after that you just need to level up a bit in a free map and keep your characters properly equipped, and you’ll be able to win pretty much any battle with the “Use your Judgement.” command. The hentai scenes were also pointless and out of place, I always ended up skipping them.

    The PS3 version seems like a big improvement though. Way better graphics, improved battle system, no stupid hentai… Too bad that the chances we’ll see an international release are very slim…
