Another Konami RPG We Never Saw Is Headed To Japan’s 3DS Virtual Console


Next week, Japan’s Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console gets an RPG that never made it to western shores—Konami’s Esper Dream. This is a top-down action RPG that has you playing as a boy that has been transported inside a book.


Esper Dream’s battles aren’t turn-based. Once you encounter an enemy, you’re taken to a separate battle screen like most JRPGs, but actions are carried out in real-time. You’re equipped with various firearms and use them to take enemies out, in addition to your ESP skills.


Esper Dream will be available for download on July 10th for 500 yen.
