A Good Look At Sol Trigger’s Story And Battle System

By Ishaan . July 13, 2012 . 3:02pm

Imageepoch have released a lengthy promotional trailer for PSP RPG, Sol Trigger, which gives one a good look at the game, across cutscenes—some of which were in the game’s opening movie—and its battle system, which was shown off in a separate video as well. You can watch it below:



Sol Trigger is about a fight over “Sol” energy. In the city of Kaiserhald, the Machine Church wants to harness Sol energy from the city’s citizens, and the Sol Trigger group rises up to oppose the church. In the game’s battle system, you use Sol to pull off your skills, and can even use it for powerful kamikaze attacks that take off a chunk of your own HP.


Sol Trigger will be released on October 4th in Japan.

    Very awesome. Can’t wait for it to release. Imageepoch anything is always good news, especially their battle systems.

  • This game is looking in-cre-di-ble! This game needs a western release, most likely in the form of a digital release. If Imageepoch release games like this on the Vita, the Vita will be one happy handheld.

  • Xapth

    That battle system looks incredibly awesome, almost like Persona pumped up with loads of action.

    I’m really hoping this sees a release outside of Japan.

    Games like this, Final Fantasy Type-0, and Digimon World Re:Digitize are prime examples of why I’m still hyped for PSP games.

    i wish all turn based jrpgs had this level of dynamic attacks.

  • gaiahatergaia

    my god…
    It looks like Imageepooch has put alot of effort into this, i might even go as far as to say this is the best RPG on the PSP ever, and i don’t think i’ll change my mind.

    Now the only thing left is localization…if Aksys, Atlus, or XSEED localize it, then my life will be complete.

    • Unknown

      Hopefully this gets localized, or even better we could see a re-release of it on the vita. 

      If anything the Vita needs more games, its only sold about 2.5 million units, for a game console thats pretty bad

    Sol Trigger.

    I would give you a warm home.I would play you all day and night.We’ll have great times together.–and when I’m finally done playing you, I would trade you in so that some one else can buy you and do the same. 

    • Crimson_Cloud

       Don’t be selfish. At least mention the PAL territories too.

  • amagidyne

    I always knew solar power would destroy us all.


  • revenent hell

    and I realy realy want this game please someone localise it for us!It looks to awesome not to get at least a DD version

    • PoweredByHentai

      I read this and immediately started to watch the trailer.  XD

      • revenent hell

        :D I couldnt help but notice,its a very life like moment of rest……. Im going to hell for worse reasons than this

  • TheFoolArcana

    > tfw never coming to America

  • aoihana

    It’s always a freaking church, really. I mean, seriously, why do you keep trusting them?!  щ(゜ロ゜щ) 

    Man, Sol Trigger looks amazing! The battle system looks great, but I have to say the characters are what really draw me in. The designs are beautiful, and the seiyuu’s are just as great! (*≧m≦*)

    The only thing that worries me is the possible tragedies Sol Trigger will bring, and from the looks of it, angst is pretty much a given. 。:゚(。ノω\。)゚・。

    • gaiahatergaia

      The church is good, man.

  • Mad_Dog_Yayan

    It looks amazing, looks like I got no choice but to import. Looking at this, I think I’m going to be a FarelxSophie shipper.

  • Brandon001

    seriously not easy being an english speaking/american Jrpg fan

    damn man.

    •  So much truth in that post lol.

    • It ain’t easy for non-Jp reader/speaker Asian and other ppl too. 

  • Love the green haired girl =P I hope this gonna get localized, although I doubt that will happen….

  • RedShadoww

    Dammit why isn’t it announced for the US yet?! I don’t care if it’s physical or digital, I don’t care if it doesn’t have english audio (i’d rather have japanese though), I just want the text to be translated! I want english subs when the characters talk! Thats all!! Then you can have my money! Dx

    • jaserboi

      I would like that as well, and seeing as how I haven’t played my PSP in a while, and I don’t really feel like looking up JRPGs, I don’t know how many have been translated and brought to the US. But whether it be physical or digiatl, I doubt there has been many. And also due to the fact that the PSP is basically dead (I don’t see why this wasn’t made for PS Vita, but it could have been in production before that even came out or something) anywhere outside of Japan, I highly doubt that this is going to see any type of a translation. Sorry for my little ranty thing, and also sorry if I used any type of improper grammar (I know some comma’s are out of place because I am not good with them.) 

  • darkfox1

    Wow this game looks like a lot of effort was put into it by this trailer alone!

    • The telltale PSP game look is absent judging by trailer alone. Heck compare this ti Re:D trailer.

  • Those purple sparks looked painful (>.<  ) I don't know if anyone has asked this but, what's that song playing in the background? I want it ( o_o)

  • Hot damn, this looks splendid! O.O

    I don’t care who would bring this overseas, JUST LOCALIZE IT AND HAVE MY MONEY. Please? ;3;

    • Altoire

       I agree :|

  • Go2hell66

    Calling it now this game will have the best soundtrack evar

  • Alexander Aubert

    c’mon image epoch i like your games since ARF

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Lol.^^ The item equipment screen and the sounds effect is the same as Black Rock shooter there.^^

    And this game looks really great here^^ But now i am on the same dillema as BRS again.T_T will this game come here? As the moment i imported BRS, the news of BRS coming really breaks my heart as i should have waited there.T_T


  • This game and Bakemono Portable keep amaze me with its beautiful graphics….

    And if the ending of the story is FOREVER ALONE with handicaps lk wht GC did.. Nah, as long as the story well written and hv a good ending I don care wht kind of ending it hv. I really hv to stop having GC ending related flashback.

  • I must… I have to sacrifice more virgins to bring this overseas? 

    I must… for the greater good.

    • NO. Sacrifice your wallet instead.

      • You know there’s a reason why I must sacrifice virgins right? 

        I don’t have a wallet anymore.

  • Abel.exe

    First Final Promise, now this. Imageepoch should really localize their games!
