Take A Second Look At Last Rebellion

By Spencer . July 3, 2009 . 5:07pm

lastreb Apparently, Last Rebellion *is* coming out this year, but not in North America. Nippon Ichi Software officially announced the game for Japan and slated their first 3D RPG for 2009.


Last Rebellion is developed by Hit Maker, the same studio behind Blade Dancer and A Witch’s Tale. In the game you control two characters Nine, a swordsman, and Aisha, a magic using “sealer” that share a body and a HP meter.


This batch of screenshots gives us a better look at the battle system which shows Nine or Aisha fighting solo. Similar to Front Mission and Vagrant Story players can target specific body parts like arms to reduce an enemy’s ability to attack or their legs to slow them down.

    Meh… Looks like their characters designs were drawn from the typical build-a-char RPG workshop…

    • Hraesvelgr

      Considering who’s making the game, I wouldn’t expect much.

  • To be fair it does look a wee bit better than last time they showed it, though the design certainly is bland.

  • M’iau M’iaut

    Looks like NIS will have ‘exciting news’ on Sunday…..Atelier Rurona or a ship date for Sakura Taisen perhaps?

    In other AX announcements Peach Princess is bringing over Demonbane and mangagamer got Higurashi and Shuffle! coming for download.

    Looks much better than when they first showed it, and the song on the site is pretty cool, this and Trinity Universe are offficially on my radar now

  • shion16

    everything looks ok…….except the characters

  • Kevin

    I would love to see this come to X360 if not no big I will jsut get for PS3 . I just would rather play it on my system of preference is all.

  • lostinblue

    still looks like a psp game

    • Symytry

      Yeah…looks like they used their engine from Aria. It’s a pretty sad state of affairs, but I doubt they have a lot of cash to pour into technology research. This issue is becoming deeper and deeper with a wider array of smaller developers. They should stick to PSP and push that engine as far as it can go rather than make an embarrassing PS3 game.

      • Ereek

        It definitely looks better than Aria. I’m not seeing how it looks “horrible,” it’s just not “amazing.”

  • Hmm, I can’t decide if they’re going after a certain art style or design aesthetic… or if the game is just ugly. It certainly seems much better than the pre-alpha stuff NIS showed off a month or so ago, but… I’m not sure if I’m just missing something or if it’s the game.

    Looks better but it still doesn’t look very good. Still if the story is well done and the battle system is fun then I will deal with the high res PS2 graphics
