Time and Eternity review: forever alone

Time and Eternity's treatment of women is intolerable Time and Eternity follows the story of Toki — a time-traveling princess — and her fiancé, the player-controlled pervert of a protagonist. The plot is absurd to a degree well beyond the complex scenarios typical to the genre. When the couple's wedding is interrupted by murderous ninjas, Toki reveals an aggressive "second soul" named Towa living inside of her. Putting their powers together, Toki and Towa jump back in time six months to search for their would-be murderer, while their fiance's soul is accidentally put into the body of her pet dragon, Drake. Drake is a despicable character, and I was dismayed to be stuck playing as him during some scenes and guiding his conversations. From the moment I named his human...

Time and Eternity launch trailer shows dual heroines in anime action

A launch trailer for Imageepoch's anime-style JRPG Time and Eternity focuses on the combat abilities of heroines Toki and Towa. As two personalities in one time-traveling body, Toki and Towa must dodge enemy attacks in real time and counter with their own abilities. Both use a rifle, though the redheaded Toki prefers bare-handed martial arts for melee combat while the blonde Towa uses knives. Time and Eternity releases today on PS3. Polygon took an early look at the game last month at E3.

Time and Eternity hands-on impressions: all that glitters

Time and Eternity is what you'd call a looker. Even as a Japanese role-playing game, it's anything but typical in its hand-drawn visuals and battle system, we learned while demoing the game at E3. But though the game is unlike many titles we've played in the genre, the novelty we experienced during the demo eventually wore off to mediocre results. In Time and Eternity, players take control of Toki, a young woman whose body is inhabited by two souls. During Toki's wedding, her soon-to-be husband is murdered by assassins. Joined by her alter ego Towa and pet dragon, Toki must travel back in time to prevent the attack. The game features bright, hand-drawn 2D visuals layered on top of a 3D world. Time and Eternity's animation is easy on the eyes, but the demo's background lacked the same...


Time and Eternity trailer shows off time-warping hand-drawn anime JRPG combat

NIS America has released a new trailer for Imageepooch's anime-style JRPG Time and Eternity focused on the game's combat. The protagonist of the game is a princess inhabited by two spirits, Time and Eternity, who must travel back in time to stop the murder of the knight who was to marry her on their wedding day. Switching between the two spirits changes the princess' hair color as well as her style of combat. The game itself features hand-drawn sprites against rendered backgrounds, and battles seem to be about careful timing to dodge enemies' attacks and counter. Time and Eternity will be released in Europe and America this summer as a PlayStation 3 exclusive.

She and her companions must go back in time and uncover the murder plot in order to prevent it and save the kingdom. Players can switch between the princess' two personalities,...
