Nippon Ichi Software of America (NIS America for short) has acquired the license to Black Rock Shooter, a JRPG on its way the PlayStation Portable.
Wait, wait... The PSP is still alive?
Myself personally, it's still my most played handheld. Anyway, can't go wrong with a bit of Nippon Ichi.
I haven't played my PSP since that one game came out... What was it? hmm...
Crisis Core? Patapon 3?
I'd sure hope you were thinking of Legend of Heroes; otherwise, you have missed out on a truly great game.
If you like RPGs there are literally dozens. KH: Birth by Sleep, Valkyria Chronicles 2 and 3, Yakuza New Chapter, ZHP, Cladun, Tales of Phantasia Narikiri Dungeon X, Crisis Core, Gurumin, Final Fantasy Type-0 (coming soon), Gods Eater Burst, Jeanne d'Arc, Phantasy Star Portable 1 & 2, the definitive version of Final Fantasy IV and Tactics, Final Promise Story, Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, an asston of PSOne Classics....
If you're into JRPGs it is.
and who wouldnt be? They cover every sub genre
Yes PSP is still alive i just download Parasite Eve 2 from PSN and play it on my PSP
Sony is making it easier to release games for the system... finally. lol Also it helps when they've given up royalties on these type of products released for the PSP: more profit to the developers/publishers.
Can't find a way to un-mod my PSP go now. I don't care, it's amazingly good. It's an amazing action JRPG, and I'm glad to see that we here in NA and EU will be able to play it officially. I'm loving the battle system and the style. Then again, I've always loved the style of anything Black Rock Shooter related. I'm just hoping they don't make too many drastic changes.
Can't imagine they would. Nippon Ichi is one of those companies that stays incredibly faithful to the source material.
Well, there isnt many material to work from. A music video, an OVA and that's pretty much all. As long as they mantain the cool overall design of the caracter, there arent many things they can mess with.
I meant, from the game. As long as they don't make the font look stupid and they don't change BRS' voice too much, it'll be perfect.
Also, you KNOW they are going to have Japanese voices. UNLIKE SEGA AND VALKYRIA CHRONICLES ON PSP, RARARRAGHARGHAR
They haven't decided. And I'm not sure that the UMD will be large enough for two vocal tracks. English and Japanese might not fit on one UMB, so they'll have to choose.
Leave it to NIS to localize a game I didn't even know I wanted.
my psp is my most played game machine of all, even my ps3, 3ds, x box 360 and a ps2. i play my psp all day.
its the only system with a ton of great jrpgs
