NIS America formally announced Cross Edge which, as we mentioned before, is scheduled to come out here this May. Characters in this PlayStation 3 RPG come from a variety of series including: Disgaea, Darkstalkers, Ar Tonelico, Atelier Marie, and Spectral Souls. Once in your group you can dress them up in different stat altering costumes. Not sure how a cheerleader outfit or a bikini are going to be useful during battle, but Cross Edge is a fan service game and fans might want to see these things.
Got a favorite character? NIS America is kicking Cross Edge off by asking fans to vote for the best character costume combination. Rosenqueen will sell deluxe Giclee prints of the top two picks. Two people from each pick will win a free Giclee print to hang in their home. Some characters like Whim don’t stand a chance since Mana Khemia 2 wasn’t released here yet. I think the scale is tipped towards Etna since NIS America is publishing Cross Edge. Who do you want to win?
