First off, the screenshot above is from Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne
, not this new RPG. We're not allowed to use magazine scans as pictures, you see! Anyway, PS3 Forums member Jeremiah (who we doubt very much is a bullfrog) recently slapped up some Famitsu scans revealing a new PS3 title called Tears to Tiara
, or something similar. The game is an RPG -- the most hardcore of role playing games, featuring anime characters who just happen to be scantily clad. For the niche audience out there, we know what you're thinking. "Why the hell haven't we heard anything about this?" We're asking the same thing, but it's an easy answer. It's probably not coming to America or Europe, just like Mist of Chaos
and any other RPG that's been announced for the PS3 (except the heavy hitters, but that's why this is for the niche audience).
From the given screenshots, the game appears to be a sort of strategy-RPG, action-RPG, standard-RPG all rolled into one. We can't read Japanese, so we can't really tell you much about it. All we know is that our hands are screaming for a current generation JRPG and the Square Enix titles aren't hitting until 2008. Other than White Knight Story
(also 2008, presumably), there's really been nothing on the role playing front from Japan for the PS3. It makes us sad. Well, keep your fingers crossed for a worldwide release of Tears to Tiara
, even though we doubt it will happen. It looks like it would have been neat.
