Revolurt's Eastern Game Report 5/13 Edition

So if you frequent in Polygon Daily, you already know what this is. If not, it's basically a weekly thread for all the Japanese games news I have gathered every week. After talking to the mod, we agree on that it is better to open a thread just for it instead of just posting in PD, so here it is.

There will be a new thread every Monday, and there will be a reminder in each thread (except for this one) about what you might miss last week, maximum user-friendly! This week might a bit messy though since we started in the middle of the week, and I have to go back to gather all the news I got this week.

(Yes, I intentionally pick this image instead of a horizontal banner pic, too damn gorgeous)

New trailer, showing several standard game features, as well as the Classic Mode.

While this time they decided to take a more story-driven approach to the series, there is still a Classic Mode, where it plays more like a traditional Etrian Odyssey game with no story, for the player to enjoy.

Fairy Fencer f

Platform: PS3

Cc5iim7_medium

The story takes place in a world where there was a war between the goddess and demon lord. The weapons that are left in that time are called Furies, and the wielders are called Fencers. The protagonist is Fencer named Fang, who met and saved another Fencer known as Tiara, a young girl collecting Furies in order to revive the goddess.

Eleoxjj_medium

Fang, the protagonist. A bad-mouthed idiot who just talk whatever that comes out of his mouth, but very straightforward on the other hand. A rather lazy optimist, but once he is on fire, no one can stop him.

W7cc2uh_medium

Tiara, a Fencer just like Fang. Has a high class lady nature, and a little bit M, and think that it's a fresh experience whenever she is scold by Fang, but will become very scary person once she is angered.

7mdz8xp_medium

Alyn, a spirit reside in Fang's Furies. Amnesic, think Fang as nothing more than an idiot and always looking down on him. Her personality makes her kind of similar to Fang in a way.

Gh842b8_medium

A mysterious new game announced by SCEJ. A teaser is released, more info will be on 5/21.

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle

Platform: PS3

4or5pti_medium

D2yoqdo_medium

Kishibe Rohan and Cars are playable!

You can also customized character's costumes, victory poses and dialogues, because what's a better thing to do than making custom pose in a Jojo game?

There are also special moves that can be triggered under certain condition, and they recreate famous scenes from the original manga after triggered.

There is also a Rush Mode, where you simply just keep smashing the same button. What? Sounds boring? How about smashing buttons while hearing ORAORAORAORA!!! and MUDAMUDAMUDAMUDA!!! in the same time?

If My Heart Had Wings

Platform: PC

Plgvejk_medium

A visual novel published by a new publisher called MoeNovel and it supposed to have a very touching story (what they claimed). The ESRB for the game is T, so it's safe to assume that either the 18+ materials are removed or ESRB just become retarded. The game will be available digitally on MangaGamer, JAST USA and Play-Asia for $30 and physically on Play-Asia and JAST USA for $35.

You gotta admit, visual novel being published in English and getting an ESRB rating is pretty rare.

An indie horror game from Indonesia that i just saw from Siliconera. Apparently you can interact with the environment with your digital device such as cell phone or camera and if you like Fatal Frame, you will most likely like this too.
