Nippon Ichi, Gust, and Idea Factory are getting together for another PlayStation 3 RPG mashup. Introducing Trinity Universe which has characters from Atelier Viorate and Disgaea… in 3D!


For the first time in a game Etna, Flonne, and Prinny aren’t sprites. Outside of the adventure story scenes, the game uses models for dungeons and combat. Trinity Universe‘s combat system sounds kind of like Xenogears where each attack consumes AP and skills are assigned to three different buttons. Input a set sequence and you can deal more damage. Time is also an important element in Trinity Universe. Players have to destroy a gravitation field and escape a dungeon before time runs out.


Trinity Universe has two different scenarios. A goddess side with Gust characters and a demon lord side with Nippon Ichi stars. The protagonist in the demon lord storyline is a devil dog named Kanata.


Idea Factory will publish Trinity Universe in Japan this August. A release date has not been announced in North America, but NIS America is presenting a 3D PS3 game tomorrow so…

  • I’m all for these crossovers as long as they hold a candle to nippon ichi’s other games

    • Taco

      Well, Cross Edge sure didn’t.

  • ShadowYuri

    “but NIS America is presenting a 3D PS3 game tomorrow so…”

    Errr… Where did you get this info ?

    • It’s common knowledge. They said it sometime ago.

      • M’iau M’iaut

        Figuring the Rurona announcement.

  • Do want. Crossover games are proving quite fun, if a bit mindless. But hey, I don’t always need a Xenosaga-like, convoluted, religious and philosophical mind-fudge of a story. Sometimes I just want familiar characters getting together and beating other people up.

    …We all get our urges to play Dynasty Warriors now and then, right?

  • foo FOO Li ROAR!!!

    do not want. it’s the beginning of the end for 2-d sprite graphics.

    • CleruTesh

      While I am a sprite lover myself, I am afraid the “beginning of the end” was some time ago.

  • Xemnas

    2010? shouldn’t it be 09? or am i missing something

    • Well, that’s just a guess of the release date overseas. Example:
      Cross Edge came out in Japan in 2008 and we’re getting it in 2009.
      Trinity Limit comes out in Japan in 2009….

  • Wishy

    Another one? Meh, can’t complain it looks good and it’s yet another PS3 RPG.

    Now I’m just wondering if the Gust characters only appear in the goddess storyline, or if there is some kinda crossover between the demon lord/goddess side.

  • Nabe

    Who’s handling design/development? Idea Factory? It doesn’t look like any game I can imagine seeing from any of the three companies…

    I’m interested!

  • Yet another awesome looking RPG! Damn Nippon Ichi is on a roll!

  • Hopefully they release all the character art again, it was fun looking over Cross Edge’s and seeing all the characters.
