Terror Of The Stratus Trailer Shows The Sci-Fi Horrors In Konami’s PSP RPG

By Spencer . May 13, 2011 . 8:58am

Konami caught RPG fever. In addition to working with Valkyrie Profile developer tri-Ace, they also signed a game from Nude Maker, creators of Steel Battallion and Infinite Space.


Terror of the Stratus takes place in Tokyo 2055 where alien invaders have gathered on the surface of the moon. Satelite, the animation house that created the new Persona 2: Innocent Sin movie, animated the terrifying creatures and Seishiro, the sword swinging protagonist.



Invaders razed Seishiro’s home and he’s going to fight back as part of the Imperial Special Six Squad. Misogi, his commanding officer, is also seen in this trailer.


Terror of the Stratus is slated for release later this year on PSP.

  •  Next year?! 2012? Even after the release of the NGP? I hope to see this game it looks cool.

  • Seishiro Voice actor = Takuto’s and Setsuna’s voice actor?(Mamoru Miyano) Sounds absolutely like them
    Also I think I again heard Aya Endou, but that’s maybe just me xD

    • You are the only one left that isn’t on twitter yet Raioh!!! SAA! COME NOW!

      •  That’s because I’m the chosen one!!!

        • Zero_Destiny

           More like the stubborn One!!! XD

          •  I cannot see the difference there. It all comes down to me being the super hero of love and justice! :D

          • Zero_Destiny

             Raioh you fool!!! Can’t you see your hurting everyone. You can’t do it all alone. All your doing is throwing your life away. Let us help you!!! We’re friends. Only when we’re bond together can we win. You don’t need to carry this burden any more. Share it with us. Your stubbornness is only holding you back. Believe in us. Believe in your friends!!! You can’t gattai with only one robot. You need multiple robots, and multiple friends. Don’t fight by yourself!!! Together with your friends is the only way to fight. That way we can all live!!! No one needs to sacrifice themselves. We live together so that we’ll never die alone!!! :D

          •  @Zero_Destiny:disqus Well that was one nice and heroic speech and I shed some manly tears while thinking about our lost friends, but I’m not convinced yet, just a little bit more…~


          • Raioh must come or my collection will be forever incomplete..

  • Oretachi wa… GUNDAAAMMM!

    • LOOOL that was the first thing i though when i heard that voice XD XD, anyway,  RPG+Scifi : my body is ready XD… also the animation looks cool

  • Tommy Lee

     Yay! A new sci-fi rpg. =D

    • This made me want to play Xenogears again

      • Guest

        I have Galaxy Express 999 for DS but….it’s not that good…

    • godmars


      A new sci-fi RPG that’s not on the PS3.

      Though honestly I need to stop complaining since I’m now convinced the JRPGs will both never be elevated properly to PS3 standards nor released on a simpler, playable, level. They’ll only be something which mimics MMOs having you plod all over big empty spaces.

  • Looks interesting. Though I usually don’t like Sci-fi, if this were to be released in English, it could be worth a try. :D

    • Exkaiser

       “I usually don’t like sci-fi…”
      But you’ve got Megaman as your avatar? Just a bit of dissonance there, but only a bit.

  • Reminds me of evangelion.

    • noctis_nox

      Me too. It reminded me of Evangelion with a mixture of Gundam seed. LOL

    • Exkaiser

      Hmn, I keep hearing that, but I’m not seeing it.

      Aliens attacking and a reluctant protagonist fighting them off is such a common mecha trope. Might as well be Muv-Luv.

  • PrinceHeir

     reminds me of the old sci-fi anime’s :D

    i wonder what kind of gameplay will this be?

  • Darkrise

    Man that looks nice, but a next years release will take forever…  

    • Exkaiser

      2012’s not that far away.

      Heck, we’re halfway through May already.

  • I am thou, thou are PSP. PSP is all of us, All of us are PSP.


    • Zero_Destiny

       He thinks therefore I am. XD

    • amagidyne

      I am a PSP… the true console.

  • Syltique

    Infinite Space was fantastic, and this looks no different.  If they ever actually bring this over, I would buy it instantly.

  • Aragami anyone?

  • Zero_Destiny

    Oh my God this game is everything I want!!! XD I saw a Mech. :3 Yes!!! Need to hear more about this one. :D 

  • LynxAmali

    “they also signed a game from Nude Maker, creators of Steel Battallion and Infinite Space”

    I can definetly see Infinite Space in here. I mean, it’s blatantly a higher budget version. Not that that’s a bad thing (<3 Infinite Space)

    I sorta see Satelight in it too. I might the only one but aliens= hybrid of Aragami and Vajra from Macross Frontier?

    But the real question is: R1 RELEASE WHEN?

    EDIT: HOLY CRAP! What is Setsuna doing in here? NEED. GAME. NOW.

  • Gah, give gameplay video! Sci fi RPG sounds interesting. Casually optimistic!

  • OMG this looks cool! I hope it’s as good as infinite space! And I really hope it’s gonna get localized!!

  • epiphaniesarefun

    Please, someone bring this over :)  pretty please?

    • Ladius

      With PSP’s current situation I fear there’s little chance to see it localized :(

  •  I would maybe edit the article to say “Persona 2: Innocent Sin opening movie” rather than just “movie”.

  • Yes!! we nee more space-opera style rpgs!

  • Holy Puck, next year release?
    I hope this game is worth the time, also dont know why but I’m hoping for a game like Xenogears, but doubt it will ever happen….

  • thebanditking

    Looks great, I doubt it will ever get released outside of Japan but it looks interesting . You know people wonder where all the JP developed RPG’s went this gen, obviously someone forgot to check the handhelds. It really amazes me just how many RPG’s the PSP and DS got over the past 6 years.

  • Joanna

    I am casually optimistic about this one because Konami has been pretty good with localizations lately….although they did sort of pull out of DS a bit early but with Lautrec coming out globally, I am still willing to get hyped for this and hope we do get it.
