Some more gameplay trailers have come out for Penny Blood and Armed Fantasia. The development teams and creatives behind Shadow Hearts and Armed Fantasia are working on these two games, and are crowdfunding on Kickstarter. Penny Blood is a gothic horror JRPG that uses a lot of familiar elements to Shadow Hearts players, while Armed Fantasia is a western punk-style title. The campaign met its initial funding goal of $721,520 USD within a day of launching. At the time of this writing, the current take stands at $968,939 USD, with 30 days to go in the campaign.
The trailer for Penny Blood shows how Matthew walking through New York in the 1920s. You can also see how battles work in this game. Like Shadow Hearts, there will be a Judgement Ring system where you have to perform skill checks before actions. There will also be a Fusion ability, though it is unclear how you will obtain them and what role they play in the lore.

Armed Fantasia doesn’t have its own trailer. Instead, it is part of the double kickstarter announcement. The trailer starts with Akifumi Kaneko lounging around and spinning a wheel to see what he should do. After the short skit, it plays the trailer for Armed Fantasia. While there is a trailer for Penny Blood right after, it is the exact same as the one above.
Armed Fantasia and Penny Blood are in development, and those interested can back the projects via Kickstarter. As of the time of writing, it has reached over $1,250,000 CAD, surpassing its goal.
