By Sunjun . August 30, 2013 . 5:32pm


Nippon Ichi Software has revealed an updated trailer for their upcoming 2D action-RPG, Battle Princess of Arcadia. It features most of the footage from their previous trailer, but with more playable characters, including a lancer from the kingdom of Armatura and a handsome mage.


The story follows Plume, the Battle Princess of the kingdom of Schwert who must defeat ancient monsters throughout the continent, occasionally leading an army against an army or even a giant monster. You’ll be able to fight with over 900 weapons and upgrade them.


Battle Princess of Arcadia will be released for the PlayStation 3 on September 26.

  • I really sorta wonder when the localization will be announced for this. This looks like such a neat game!

    • Yes and I really hope for a retail title. Or at least physical through NISA’s website.

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    Looks pretty darn good! I know this isn’t NIS’s forte, but it looks good for their first side scrolling RPG.

    • echokanon

      Prinny games are side scrolling games too. although they are more to platformer genre

  • Göran Isacson

    Pace looks a bit slow, but so was Odin Sphere as well and I liked that well enough! Yup, this is still looking real good.

    • Arcana Wiz

      yes Odin Sphere was GREAT, really loved that game…. and velvet.

  • leingod

    Is it wrong to want this on the Vita as well? Looks really fun.

    • tubers

      With games like DC and M:R, I don’t think it’s an unusual request, not to mention this is a Playstation game as well.

    • Arcana Wiz

      considering how great it’s portable games, isn’t a shame you want to play anything in your vita.

  • Arcana Wiz

    this really looks great, and the happy thing it’s that NIS games are almost all localized, we just didn’t get some psp ports….. a shame, but this really make the localization almost guaranteed

    • brian

      Well most of their RPGs get localized, except a couple they just produced, but their VNs are almost never considered.

  • I am really looking forward to this title! Localisation go!

  • Vash bane

    900 weapons x.X!?

  • DyLaN

    Just curious, who is responsible for the art/character design?

    • Klarktastic

      I would like to know that as well

    • Wappuli

      He seems to go by so many names that I’m not excatly sure what to call him, but in the homepage he is marked as Sumisu(Smith?) and that is he’s pixiv too , so I’ll go with that.

      • DyLaN

        Thanks for the info. S/He have a pretty nice style.

  • Pockystix

    Looks neat

    can’t wait to try it out~

  • Demeanor

    Fave: Odette (airhead with the giant sword at 1:12) XD

  • s07195

    The BGM is good. The gameplay… looks slow.

  • ChatKnight

    6800 yen? Animations kinda look like they were made in Flash. Might consider this as a download budget title though.

  • Kitestwinblades

    Its like a Vanillaware game made by NIS! The music is really good too!
