  • That first video reminded me of Shinobi on the PS2! Looks like fun, but I would have liked to see some combat.

  • d19xx

    The gameplay clip has a God Eater vibe. I’m really curious how the gameplay is gonna be,.

  • Nisa… please… I beg You~~

  • interesting!

  • RagnaXBL

    very nice, just wish we could see more actual combat

  • Wow, the ruined city actually reminded me of God Eater: Burst. Especially City of Mercy.

  • i like gray she has bigger jugs

    this game looks intresting !

    • seriously…why do guys like breasts so damn much?
      They are just LUMPS OF SKIN they are not even for men, they are for babies! Has everyone forgotten that? And for the stupid women who don’t like to breast feed because it is ”gross”, how can they even think of that? But they don’t mind when a man sucks on their breasts now do they? I just still don’t understand how men like breasts…I mean, don’t they ever get sick of them? 

      •  whoa calm down missy

        • Yeah, I’m a girl, and I think that rant was going a little overboard. It’s called human nature, you know?

      • FireCouch

        I think you are forgetting the fact that we are men.  Most men are attracted to women.  It’s been like that for a while, I think.  There is your answer.

      • RagnaXBL

        why do mice like cheese?

        …but in all honesty i like flat girls more :D

      • O_o Whoa, chill out. It’s not that deep.

      • SolidusSnake

        lol such a random rant, but if it makes you feel better the entire human body, male or female, is just a sack of meat, bone, excrement, and other nasty stuff. And it only gets better after you die. :p

        •  Haha mostly excrement. Feel your foreheads. Any grease? It comes from the same “junk” your body gets rid of. Enjoy knowing you got poo all over yourself at all times. Mwahahahahahahahahahaha?

          • Did you know that by not taking a dump a day, you take in the equivalent of  three packs of cigarettes worth of toxins?

            So not only is that poo all over yourself, it’s also saving your life.

          • Code

            I didn’t know I ate that much Ammonia, Arsenic, Benzene, Butane, Cadmium, Cyanide, DDT, Ethyl Furoate, Lead, Formaldehiyde, Methoprene, Napthalene, Methyl Isocyanate, and Polonium in the run of a day xpx;

          • Tee hee, that’s why I said equivalent.

          • DanteJones

            So if I smoke and don’t poo I’m doubly screwed? Ah crap. Literally.

          • Code

            @SolidusSnake  & NickyD: Suffering from OCD, your both giving me an incredible urge to wash my hands down to the bones xmx;

      • Barrit

        I heard in college that it’s a subconscious/instinct type thing. It’s like encoded in our DNA or something like that. I forgot what course it was, but I think it was a Psychology course. When we see big breasts, subconsciously we are attracted to it because we think “hm she will be a good mother/supplier of milk to our children”. I didn’t quite buy it and the class just laughed about it. I think the course said something similar about a girls shape/hips.. you know, for child bearing.

        • RagnaXBL

          flat women are sexy :/

          • Darkrise

            I apologize, I also have the same viewpoint…

          • AzureNova

            All women (Ones I am attracted to) are sexy =)

        • neocatzon

          It’s Freudian psychology (Psychoanalysis). Ridiculous, very subjective, too much sexuality, and asking for more bashing but somehow we can’t totally ignore or reject his subconscious thingy. 

        • Ren

          Eh, not exactly.

          You see, the theory comes from actually before man became bipedal. At that point of story, childbirth was a very messy affair(even more than now) and the chances of both the mother and the child dying because of complications during birth was very high, so men became attracted to women with bigger hips and curves as a survival instinct, because women with wider bottoms has less chances of birth complications (that’s where child bearing hips expression comes from), and because the butt can store a lot of fat, which could help with the pregnancy. Because of that, it was the size, format and ‘cleavage’ of the butt that exited men.

          But once we became bipedal, it meant our butts weren’t on face level anymore, but men were still attracted by the ‘cleavage’ since it was a survival instinct. Some say that since the breasts became easier to spot than the butt, men started to choose women based more on breasts(they may always have helped because of the general curves attraction, but not as much as before) , and with the advent of clothing, since the butt became even more hidden, men misplaced their survival instinct of finding women with wider hips and curves sexier to finding women with better cleavage and body shapes sexier. Or so I read in the books by the Pease couple. I can’t really verify it’s authenticity, but as a theory it sounds very valid.

          The size of the mamas doesn’t actually affect milk supply/production as much as it might seem, it’s mostly aesthetic. It also explains why most other mammals don’t have breasts as prominent as ours, because they don’t help with their reproductive cycle or sexual attraction.

      • city_debut

        You are correct. Asses are superior.

      • Im sorry i cant help it T_T

      • I have no idea..

        sorry i did not mean to offend anybody

         its just breasts are  imprinted in boys-mens brains from a young age.

        some women love getting those fun bags touched i dont think guys can get enough of T and A.

        they are like video games !

      • Eric Chan

        Not to turn this into an inappropriate conversation about body parts, but such envy isn’t that farfetched of a concept. I’m not saying that’s the sole reason, but some women may feel the same about you-know-what us males have. 

      • those lump of skins make you looks sexy ! that’s the answer !

      • Code

        Because guys generally are attracted to breasts opo? Sexual characteristics are part of what make us attracted to male or females. The human body, male and female has qualities which make it visually stimulating and attractive to the opposite sex. I’m not sure what’s not to get >w<' But basically they serve plenty of purposes outside of just childcare. Besides, they are lumps of sexy skin! Most doctors will agree, that's best kind of lumps of skin!

  • I really like how this game is shaping up. I hope NISA will localize it!!

  • Christian Wright

    the gameplay hasnt entirely won me over but i guess im still going to pick it up since im a fan. goodies ftw.

  • It’s weird, I’m not usually big on games based off of existing anime properties, but this looks really slick.  May have to look into it more

    • To be fair, it’s not really an “existing” anime property if you go all the way back to its roots. It all spawned from… nothing, really. Well not nothing, but you know what I mean. A mysterious following for a drawing and music video exploding into wild fandom.

      But yes, it looks quite slick :D

  • Only one word can represent this!!

    SEXY~ :D

  • KotaroInugami

    So I guess it’s turn based somewhat? Interesting. Doesn’t matter now tho, cuz the WRS Figma already grabbed my interest enough to preorder it.

    • Darkrise

      From the looks of it, the mission part looked more like a shooting range one, i.e practice targets.

  • Darkrise

    Well, I’m relieved to know that I won’t be disappointed, the world/city looks explorable and seems like you can accept missions at anytime.

  • Shinji Kazuya

    Wow! Awsome indeed! The music was epic, both the rock one from the movie and the techno style one from the gameplay part.
    Hoping it gets here! > <

    • AzureNova

      Even if this doesn’t get localized, I’m still importing it just because its awesome.

  • DanteJones

    Nice, some actual gameplay finally. It looks pretty sick!

  • I have seen the OAV and it is definitely an interesting project. It gives off a Persona 3 vibe. The game, however, seem to be focusing on just one half of the story. 
    Have you guys seen the OAV?

  • Eric Chan

    The game is not based off of the OVA in ANY capacity. This is a completely separate take on the BRS concept, as was the manga. There is no established story to fall back on, so I’m not sure where you got that idea. 

    So that means you won’t be seeing Yomi or Mato.

  • Lordphantomhive

    Eh needs to see more of the combat but otherwise it looking very cool. Sucks NISA not going to bring anymore PSP games (can’t blame them through sadly), so pretty much very slim chance at the most of this game coming to NA.:(

  • Kai2591

    Lol that ‘bed’ scene again (what is it implying?!)

    Anyway, looks nice, and I love the animation by ufotable~
    Hopefully the gameplay won’t be so repetitive….Most psp games i’ve played are so repetitive and lacking in depth…so i hope this won’t be the case.

    Hopefully some awesome company (like NISA) will localize it :)

    • AzureNova

      Honestly at first look, the graphics remind me of The 3rd Birthday but WAY better and more exciting and fun to look at lol. Also I called it first, I did say that it was going to be a shooter as stated in a previous article lol.

      • Kai2591

        I just hope it will exceed expectations.

  • Eric Chan

    Xseed seems to be the only one who even cares anymore, but I’m not expectant or sad on the idea of a localization of this title. I’ve already gotten over the fact that publishers pick titles based on what “they” perceive as sales worthy, not fans. Though, in retrospect, that means I never understood how niche publishers pick the titles they do then. 

  • I’m liking what I’m seeing xD. Still holding onto a bit of hope that we will see this game localized!

    • Shinji Kazuya

      Me too friend, me too! The rock song is just epic!

    • AzureNova

      If it does really good, hopefully we will.

  • AzureNova

    Its official, I’m getting this game no matter what the cost!

    • Aoshi00

      I dunno.. I canceled my pre-order for now, really have to wait and see after the reviews.. was very disappointed by Last Promise (had amazing opening animation too), so don’t want to take any chances.. As stylish as it looks, this is a game really based on nothing.. this isn’t even related to the OVA anime which I liked.. I like huke’s art okay, it’s a little strange looking but unique..

      • Eric Chan

        Yeah, but how much gameplay did we see of The Last Promise when it debuted? This game is directed by Niinou, so I have at least a bit of faith this time. And the OVA? Remember, it’s one take on the story, Yomi and Mato are considered generic characters, in this case. 

        • Aoshi00

          We saw quite a bit of gameplay for Last Promise, but it ended up to be a very mediocre and boring game, I thought it would be at least as good as Archaic Sealed Heat w/ its turn based combat.  I just know this is made by ImageEpoch too..  If the story here is connected to the OVA, at least I am attached to and care about the established chars, but story-wise, this is anything goes based on a vague concept, they just pretty much write anything, black rock shooter, white rock shooter, girls w/ big gun hands, what the heck is this game about?  I just don’t want to get burned importing a $80 just because it’s stylish.  I am going to wait for reviews from users on Amazon Jpn.  If I had waited, I wouldn’t have made the mistake of buying Last Promise.  And this game is enticing people w/ pre-order bonus, if the game is no good, what good is the figure.. It would be great if this game is fully voiced, Last Promise appeared to be in the trailer but there were hardly any voices. I’m not saying this game won’t be good, I just don’t know, at the horrible exchange rates right now it’s just too risky to blind buy a game that’s based on a vague cool concept.. what does the title mean anyway? Even the OVA was pretty surreal and not much substance..

  • Genjo

    those trailers are make well just let alone the OP was awesome for me it’s MUST BUY! for me XD!

  • Historiata

    Hmmm.. not sure I’m particularly hot on the mass amounts of simple exploring.

  • After Putting up with American PsP Games which are lack luster. I’ll take almost anything at this point. Black Rock Shooter is a very good example of why a PsP, is delicious. Sign/Co-Signed. I’ll be importing this beauty.
