    If this came over to NA, I’d definitely buy this. The battle system kind of reminds me of 7th Dragon 2020.

    • gamefreak86

      Looks promising.

    • Sheep

      I still want the shit out of 7th Dragon 2020, both of these are day ones for me.

  • Reki Honoo

    Please get localized

  • psycho_bandaid

    Sweet. Hopefully aquire keeps up tjeir track record of localizing games for the west and we see this one.

  • ZekeFreek

    If it comes over, I’ll start caring.

  • Alexander Aubert

    anyone know what’s this game story is?

    • DyLaN

      Its there on the main site… If you can read moonrunes. I haven’t come across any article tht provide more info on the story. Correct me if I am wrong though.

    • Well I have been slacking with kanji for the past few months and mostly prioritized grammar lol, but from what I can understand after quick look, there is this rumour floating around about some door that leads to a place of nothingness (I think) and if you open it a guy with an axe (but I would go for the scythe) might kill you… and that there are also some gruesome murders that are occurring and this is related to a popular drug called Mind.

      By no means I am totally sure about that ;p

      • DyLaN

        Thks anyway for providing a TL of the plot. So its kinda like P2 with all the rumours eh?

        • But I don’t think you can create rumours here, it is just a part of a plot, at least I don’t see any hint looking through the website.

          I would assume something like this would be under system tab, but for now its greyed out.

  • laurenhiya21

    Looks promising, but I’ll wait till someone does an import review on it before I get too excited (or it releases over here and someone does a regular review).

  • michel

    Not my kind of game, and I have no idea about how many First Person Dungeon Crawler fans are there in the west, but given the total absence of such games for Vita in English, this could well be the one.

  • Lester Paredes

    This gives me all the right Persona Dejavu vibes… please, let this get localized!

    • Ouch My Head Said Dionysus

      This would totally scratch the itch while waiting for new Persona while simultaneously being nostalgic for 90s SMT

  • tubers

    I’m curious why this was released just for the VITA.. wonder what VITA exclusive functionality it has..

    PSP can very likely render this and so can the 3DS. (This doesn’t even look as good or any better than Sol Trigger)

  • DyLaN

    Is tht Ken and Jade Curtiss I saw there!? Not to mention “Kanji” tht runs the Rosemary shop….

    PS Judging by the full OP vid their name are Yukito Kujo and Saionji Tougetsu if any1 is curious.

    Official art > sprite art. The main trio sprite art looks pretty…… off to me. The others character looks fine though.

    • Mad_Dog_Yayan

      Strangely, one of the main character Yoichi Ogata, is voiced by jade Curtiss’ seiyu, Takehito Koyasu

    • JustThisOne

      Oh god. He really does look like Jade. @[email protected] I can’t unnotice now.

  • Exor

    If this gets localized, I will buy a VITA.

  • Ouch My Head Said Dionysus

    Mental Inside Nobody Dolls vs Judgement Uninfected Naked Kind & Execute Rangers

  • My mind is telling me that I want this game. I hope it gets localized sometime soon.

  • Amine Hsu Nekuchan

    Man, Sony, just a killer app like this would be enough to get me to buy a Vita, come on…

  • Valtiel Ikari

    wonder why first person dungeon exploration…. still looks good, the battle camera reminds me of “Dragon Quest 7” XD
    hope this get a chance to get localized… hope so…

  • cloudcaelum

    Looks like persona, this is good thing.

  • Heavely insoired by Persona 2 ? -.-

  • RoxasTheUnknown1

    Ehhh. Looks very weak next to Sol trigger and 7th Dragon 2020-II.

  • Sapitntapit

    Nooooooo…it’s 1st person dungeon crawling!

  • Sergio Briceño

    Lately so many games are going for the Persona feel. I’m not complaining, actually this looks like a good Persona alternative but instead of the MC having a stupid best friend this one actually looks badass.

    If this performs well and makes a good profit then Atlus HAS to realize the SMT formula has to evolve, either from a technical or gameplay perspective, or they are going to be trapped in the PS2 era of RPGs forever. It has worked so far, but developers are catching up and some others have evolved their games completely. Maybe full evolution isn’t the way to go, but I’m hoping for a REAL improvement in both SMT5 and Persona5.

  • Ben Ruiz

    Certainly looks “heavily inspired” by Atlus’s games that is for sure, but the Vita needs games and if this is on that level of quality then it can’t hurt.

    • ShadowDivz

      Yeah, but one part that stood out for me particularly, was 0:51.
      If you played P3 you will know what im talking about.

  • personablaze

    …The Pic of the girl on the link…I thought it was Aigis O_o

    But this has got me Interested fho sho ^^

    • Oscar Alberto Abrego Suarez

      I say this one looks much more than Aigis though.

      Anyway im hyped for this game.

  • Alexandra Cordes

    ZIZZ? How does this keep getting better and better!?

  • Strain42

    Is there still anyone out there who would try to say “This game doesn’t look that much like Persona” after seeing this?

    I mean don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying it’s a rip-off, and I’m not saying it’ll be bad…but it’s really hard to ignore the Persona similarities at this point.

    Honestly, the fact that it seems so much like a Persona game is the only reason I’ll pick this up if it gets localized.

  • TheExile285

    Looks good. Hope I’ll get the chance to buy it.

  • I welcome more Vita games. Will probably get one this Summer at some point finally, simply because I love the hardware I just wish it had more games I wanted.

  • I really hope this game gets localized, it looks so freaking awesome!

  • Please GungHo, m Vita is ready!

  • iamakii

    My mind is ready.

  • BenderIsGreat

    Persona-style fantasy with an ATB battle system? Yes.
    1st person dungeon crawling? No.
    Gonna buy it? Eeeeeeeeehhhhhhhhh maaaaaaaybe…
