Picotto Knights, An Online Action RPG For Vita, May Be Heading To The West

Aww… look at that wizard and dude with a giant chakram. Behind the cute costumes, Picotto Knights from Game Arts and NHN Hangame is an action RPG meets a beat ’em up. After you create a custom knight you can master one of the game’s eight weapons. Then join your Vita owning buddies either through Wi-Fi or 3G to fight dragons together. Picotto Knights will be available on September 20 on Japan’s PlayStation Store. It’s a free to play game with additional items you can buy for real world money.


GungHo and NHN haven’t announced if they will bring Picotto Knights to North America or Europe, but it looks like they’re planning to. GungHo filed a trademark for Picotto Knights in the US trademark database. Perhaps, an announcement will be made at Tokyo Game Show since the game will launch during the event?

    “Aww… look at that triceratops knight and dude with googly eyes.”

    This is the opening sentence I read in Google Reader, why didn’t you keep it?!

    It would be nice but I have my doubts. Dokuro is already translated in English but it’s nowhere to be seen in the West.

    • Brandonmkii

      I thought it was already confirmed to be coming out here?

      • Merveilles Lespace

        Dokuro was at PAX, it’s probably coming to the West.

        • Saw Yoshida retweet that, excites me for sure!

  • MrRobbyM

    It certainly is cute and looks fun. I’m sure the Vita will take anything at this point.

    cute :3

  • Just Tim

    Oh cool, Game Arts.  Totally waiting for this. 


  • Learii

    is just me or you  have 3  others army with you in battle or is that online play only?

  • Code

    Awesome >ww<;; 

  • Chris CCCD

    Yes yes yes I need this.

  • Solomon_Kano

    This is looking pretty sweet. GungHo’s been consistently awesome in their output this year, so this should be good.

  • Kefkiroth

    It looks really nice. I love the music, too. If this comes to the West I would see it having TONS of downloads seeing the lack of ‘free game’ competition on the Vita (Treasure of Montezuma Blitz and what else? Zen Pinball 2, which isn’t even completely free? Yeah, no competition.).

    This gives me a Dragonica vibe. Played that for 6 months then got bored. Hopefully i’ll last longer with this Picotto Knights :D
