Nippon Ichi Software released a ton of Princess Antiphona’s Hymn: Angel’s Score Op. A screenshots and a few show Mabel, the youngest of the Dorfer sisters and main character, fighting a mannequin-like monster.

 

In the world of Princess Antiphona songs are power. It looks like songs may be used in battle too. An icon to the left of the “punishing” fist looks like a horn, perhaps representing a singing attack. Nippon Ichi said specific battle details will be provided at a later date.

 

While we’re waiting to see how Princess Antiphona plays check out this batch of screens, which include a look at the song sequences.

    Looks adorable. And fun. Not that NIS has to do a whole lot to catch my eye other than keep offering 2D games in a 3D world.

      Amen.

    One has to assume at this point that it’s related to Marl’s Kingdom…just the look and the idea are enough to make me think this is the case…

    Anything suggesting that -certain characters- are among the series in question (Cornet*hint*hint*Cornet)?

      Nippon Ichi loves putting cameo characters in the games. I wouldn’t be shocked if Laharl, Etna, and Liddel from A Witch’s Tale wrangled their way into this.

      She looks a lot like Coronet to me.

        Exactly my thoughts!!! In fact, just by looking at the thumbnails I could have sworn I saw Cornet in sprite form, but it’s the new main character.
        It’s kind of sad, though. It’s like in those films and TV shows when some dude sees someone they once knew, then runs up to them and it’s either someone else or their imagination :(

        Rhapsody will always by my #1 NIS series, but this new one looks like a worthy successor. It’s like getting a new pet after the old one died.

    I’m loving the city designs. Small plazas with pianos and the roads having musical notes.

    Thanks for all the screens. :)
    I assume it’ll be localized, I hope so. It’s absolutely adorable.
    Really looking forward to this one.
