Over My Dead Body has some things in common with Phantasy Star III and Compile Heart’s Record of Agarest War series. This PSP remake follows a family through generations of demon battles. The difference is each "generation" is two game years. A powerful demon cursed your bloodline and the goal of Over My Dead Body is to break the curse.
The game begins with you picking one of the eight weapon classes.
Fencer is one of the jobs you can pick from the beginning of the game. Balanced in offence and defense, fencers are the base class in Over My Dead Body. While you can place this group in the front or back row, you can only use sword techniques in the front.
Wield a Naginata and you can attack from either row. Standing in the front allows you to deal more damage, but if you favor defense you can place your character in the back row.
After two years, your hero will die, but you can pass down weapons to your children. The gods took pity on your ancestors and allowed them to "intermingle" with the gods. Each god has different elemental attributes like fire, wind, water, and earth.
Sony Computer Entertainment Japan will release Over My Dead Body in Japan this fall.
