Last Rebellion won’t make its winter 2009 release window, but the 3D action RPG is still coming out this winter. Nippon Ichi will release the game on January 28 in Japan.
Hit Maker’s game stars Nine, a brooding anti-hero, and Aisha, a magic user (aka sealer), who are trapped in the same body. In combat, you switch between the two characters. Nine uses a sword and Aisha slings spells. Last Rebellion has a Vagrant Story style targeting system where you can attacks different parts of an enemy’s body. Hit an arm to cripple an enemy’s attacks or a leg to slow it down.
When originally announced, NIS America had Last Rebellion slated for fall 2009. NIS America hasn’t mentioned the game since E3 where we learned it was delayed.
