Cross Edge Confirmed With A Costume Contest

By Spencer . March 24, 2009 . 7:52am


NIS America formally announced Cross Edge which, as we mentioned before, is scheduled to come out here this May. Characters in this PlayStation 3 RPG come from a variety of series including: Disgaea, Darkstalkers, Ar Tonelico, Atelier Marie, and Spectral Souls. Once in your group you can dress them up in different stat altering costumes. Not sure how a cheerleader outfit or a bikini are going to be useful during battle, but Cross Edge is a fan service game and fans might want to see these things.


Got a favorite character? NIS America is kicking Cross Edge off by asking fans to vote for the best character costume combination. Rosenqueen will sell deluxe Giclee prints of the top two picks. Two people from each pick will win a free Giclee print to hang in their home. Some characters like Whim don’t stand a chance since Mana Khemia 2 wasn’t released here yet. I think the scale is tipped towards Etna since NIS America is publishing Cross Edge. Who do you want to win?

  • Personally, I think Morrigan and Lilith probably have an edge here too. I know I voted for Bartender Morrigan up there (though some of the Etna costumes were nice).

    The Felicia ones just look like they lazily photoshopped some more clothes over Felicia’s default costume. :P

  • Blast, probably not open to EU (couldn’t find any of the rules or conditions, but I’ll assume because it’s NIS America that it’s only available to the US).

    I was hoping for better looking costumes, or seeing each character in the same types of outfits. To be honest, I prefer some of the normal ‘costumes’ for most of the characters.

    Go Darkstalkers!

    (Also, that press release about the announcement was just plain AWFUL)

    Totally unrelated, but this post reminds me that I hope Ono’s team and DIMPS do DarkStalkers 4 in the near future.

  • Hmm, who said the context in that RPGamer interview was skewed and meant simply there’d be an official release announcement in March? =)

    I never toot my own horn, but really. I love being spot on with my ideas/guesses!

  • Lilith – bunny.
    Didn’t even need to look at anything else.

  • Chow

    Hmmm… Canadians locked out again?
