Nippon Ichi Software released the first trailer for one of their new upcoming titles: Battle Princess of Arcadia, a 2D side-scrolling JRPG exclusive to the PlayStation 3. The trailer introduces the characters Princess Plume, Larts, and Yuni, showing them in action. Battle Princess of Arcadia has gameplay and graphical similarities to the likes of Vanillaware titles like Odin Sphere and Muramasa, along with others like Dust: An Elysian Tail. Similarities include fast-paced action and heavy emphasis on hand-drawn 2D artwork when it comes to characters sprites and backgrounds/foregrounds. Check out the trailer below.
Battle Princess of Arcadia is slated for release in Japan on September 26 of this year. No localization has been planned nor announced for Western regions as of yet.
