Cinderella (yes, the same princess from the fairy tale) is a heroine in The God and Fate Revolution Paradox from Nippon Ichi Software. She’s tired of happy endings, but you can change that. Renya, the game’s hero, has the power to change people’s fate by entering the Copy World. There you’ll see a saddened shadow of Cinderella.

As Renya battles in the Copy World, Cinderella’s attitude begins to change. Nippon Ichi’s take on the Cinderella story still has an evil stepmother, but instead of a Fairy Godmother, a magician shows up.

Before you can change Cinderella’s fate you have to fight her shadow in the Copy World. If you can get Cinderella to rise above her troubled emotions you’ll trigger a "Fate Revolution" and…

… everyone lives happily ever after. But, that’s only one of the scenarios in The God and Fate Revolution Paradox. Players have to dive into different dungeons to change fate for other characters.

 

Renya has help from a group of angels and sacred treasures. Equip these and you’ll change Renya’s appearance plus get a special skill.

 

Drill gloves give Renya a drill attack.

Hookshot gives Renya a long distance attack that lets him reel in an enemy.

Neigh of Justice, a horse head helmet, grabs the attention of all the enemies nearby. This is a good tactic if you want to lure monsters into a trap.

The God and Fate Revolution Paradox comes out on January 24, 2013 for PlayStation 3.

    Sounds pretty awesome. Really looking forward to this game, especially considering how much I loved ZHP.

    Seems pretty interesting to me… I wanna hear more about the Asagi cameo that is going to happen. xD lol

    This really IS a spiritual sequel to Z.H.P! I really dug the “episodic” story structure of that game, and I have faith that they’ve taken it and improved upon it. Gotta love the Disgaea team!

    Also, is that a freakin’ HORSE HEAD?! I must own this IMMEDIATELY.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/xxHiryuuxx Tohsaka

    What IS this thing?  I just…lol

    I think my head just popped reading most of this Cinderella stuff.

  • JustThisOne

    Hmm, I wonder if this whole game will have a fable/fairy tale theme. Perhaps not completely in a traditional sense.

  • Chris Yuen

    Does that mean I can change Asagi’s fate and make her a main character for once?

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/HWPZATWEZMGVZO6SEIEA56ZL6M win

    Fighting shadow Cinderella sounds like Persona,lol. 

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_Q6NXXGMO5XNSMJ64NIHYHFP56A Vince

       It’s symbolic~!

      • neocatzon

        now, find some freudian

  • kroufonz

    every single news/detail revealed about this game, make me more and more hyped!.

    cmon nisa give me overseas release date!

  • Locklear93

    Dear Nippon Ichi Software America,
    Please pay very close attention to this nuanced, eloquent summation of my sentiments toward this title:

    DO. WANT.

  • Raze

    Isn’t the Original Cinderella story already Bad End?Or tragic to be exact…

    Well…
    Let see how they will change The Ending…

    • puchinri

       The original isn’t. The Grimm version obviously has some of that. (As do other versions.)
      Of course, my favorites are Ever After and the Brandy version though, so maybe my opinion doesn’t matter~.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-Ng/100000854638739 Dylan Ng

      Just curious, how does the original story go?

  • pgover

    Cinderella is gonna be a character in this? I can safely say i didn’t see that coming.

    The more I see of this game, the more I wish NIS America would just announce localization. Everything about this game is just awesome from the look of things.

    Also, they’re bringing the Snake Girls and the Harpies from Z.H.P. into this game… I approve.

  • http://theadventuresofjejun.blogspot.com/ Jejun

    Strategy RPGs aren’t exactly the first thing that I’d associate with the Cinderella fairy tale, but I’ll take it!

    • Learii

      same here

    • Fitzkrieg

      Technically it’s a roguelike, but I don’t think that associates very obviously with the Cinderella tale either.

  • Amine Hsu Nekuchan

    I would very much like to play this.  Eagerly await more info.

  • GreekGod88

    i would love to play this on my Vita instead of ps3
    afterall its like Z.H.P the Gameplay will be mostly the same i think.
    But first it needs an release date for EU lol

  • Pao Ram

    I believe Nippon ichi games should be played via handheld with all the level grinding and questing to be done. The games can be easily played on a portable system. This is me judging by comparing playthroughs with Disgaea handhelds vs. Disgaea PS3

    • Elvick

      Yeah, NIS’s games usually fit best on handhelds. Still, I love ‘em.

  • http://s932.photobucket.com/ usagi_san

    I want this (localised) now!!! And I agree with @GreekGod88:disqus that I would rather play this on Vita instead, but I’ll take my (S)RPGs as they come. 

    Whilst I’ve never played Z.H.P. to this day, due to a lack of no PSP, I will definitely pick it up one of these days and this game to boot.

    And Disney shows us that Cinderella looked so happy at the end, and NIS have uncovered the truth – she wasn’t. Now, we have to clean up their mess. Thanks, Disney(!)  

  • puchinri

    Wait, isn’t Cinderella tired of happy endings? Also, Persona, much? x’D

    The game looks really pretty and appealing though. It looks like a lot fun~.

    • s07195

      I think you’re changing her attitude to it, not really the ending… Although that kind of undermines the whole ‘fate’ thing.

      • puchinri

        Oh. Yeek. That kind of sounds worse (since that’s not really a solution and sounds really questionable). I wonder. . . ono;

  • http://strictlyapathy.comoj.com/ SoulArbiter

    This game looks better and better every time I check up on it!

  • Ayaka

    Reminds me a little of Moonlight Act, a manga series I used to enjoy a lot in the past! Damn you NIS, you always show up with your awesome games and while I lose blood from the nose in ecstasy, my wallet loses funds in agony.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-Ng/100000854638739 Dylan Ng

    So we are the magician (of sorts) that fights Cinderella shadow persona style to help her overcome her feelings abt happy ending? Didn’t see that coming.

    I wonder how many other fairy tale are they going to play with XD

    EDIT

    More screenshot

    Who is imouto?

    Also, the website for GAFRP characters section is updated. They added birdie, Imouto and voice sample for several characters.

  • Göran Isacson

    Sooo… she’s TIRED of having a happy ending. Kay, don’t know how that works or why we should still give her one then, but I guess there’s some logic to it. And if it leads to the main character beating up demons and furries and wearing a horsehead, well, maybe I shouldn’t be expecting too much logic and sanity in the first place :)

    • http://twitter.com/Linka13 Linka

      Just might be me, I think it’s more the point that she’s tired of the stagnation that results from it constantly happening, not just the whole “happy ending” part. I imagine if she was going to be constantly stuck in “bad ending” too she’d get sick of it for much the same reasons. Along with it being a bad ending. XD

      • Göran Isacson

         Mmm, that’s an interesting perspective. So it’s more a matter of giving her change and something different, not necessarily that she wants to suffer all of a sudden. That could be interesting… if that is the route they’re going for.

    • Exkaiser

      It’s just like in Into the Woods!

      • Göran Isacson

        Oh man, I’ve heard of that show before but have never actually seen it, to my disgrace. Afraid the reference sailed clear past me.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Hmmm so we can make Cinderella into the tyrant now ehhh? <_<''

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-Ng/100000854638739 Dylan Ng

      Oh dear. Looks like I have to stop you. :D

  • http://twitter.com/PAeeyore eliram barak

    the whole shadow cindrella is very persona.

  • Neppygear

    This’ll probably get released in English, since NIS like to localise pretty much everything these days.

  • Arcana Wiz

    That harpy in the last screenshot isn’t from Z.H.P?

  • Tianyu Wei

    I am sold….

    that whole cleansing shadow is indeed very Persona 4 like lol. And if you can’t get an alternative happy ending (in which she lives happily without the Prince) with Cinderella then it isn’t change her “fate” much.. is it?

  • Emma Hill

    Wasn’t sure, but I’m sold. Looks like a great game.
