Finally, a RPG where you can design custom item sprites

By Spencer . September 15, 2008 . 11:01am

itemget 5bp is getting into plunging into other genres of video games in a big way. Aside from their bread and butter dating sims, 5pb has some Cave shooters and Item Getter in development. This Nintendo DS game emphasizes alchemy and item creation by allowing players to draw sprites for their custom created items. Items are made from over 1,000 kinds of raw materials that can be found in the RPG portion. Once you have the proper items you can utilize the Lyric Ring to push the story forward.


User generated items can be traded and distributed over Nintendo Wi-Fi. Each downloaded item retains the name and description you give it – a potential ESRB rating mess if Item Getter ever gets localized. Right now it’s just for Japan when it comes out in February 2009.

    If Gust adopts this idea, it looks like Quintet could be out of business soon! I like the concept though, and I support 5bp for publishing Cave shooters!

  • [i]Blast Works[/i] has a fair amount of questionable content available for it and it’s still rated E. They say that “game experience may change during online play” for a reason.

    You want to use the tags here, James.

    Slightly OT, but I just discovered that both 5bp and St!ng are owned by the same company (Genterprise).

    Everyone knows the standard.

    Bug the hell out of Atlus until they release it. If that fails we got Xseed as a second option.
