Here's NIS America's localization announcement number three! Battle Princess of Arcadias is a 2D action RPG planned for release on the PS3, but unfortunately digitally only. The first thing everyone should notice is just how brilliantly colorful the game is. Battle Princess Plume is a brilliant red and each of her potential party members is adorned in their own respective color. Without knowing much about Battle Princess of Arcadias I'm immediately charmed by its aesthetic.
In terms of gameplay, well, it's best not to expect anything on say a Tales of Phantasia tier. It's difficult to tell how smoothly the game plays from the action in the trailer, but sometimes a bit of simplicity is preferable so as to better enjoy the nuances of the combat system. Then take that simpler combat system and scale it up by fighting large groups of enemies, or simply larger enemies.
Still a lot left to see of Battle Princess of Arcadias, though for a first impression I'd say the game's aesthetic is definitely very charming -- even for an anime art style sort of game. The colorful style and well-drawn backgrounds make for a very pretty setting. More information about Battle Princess of Arcadias will certainly be coming in the months ahead as the game ramps up for a 2014 release on PlayStation 3.
