On the PS3 and Vita:
Atelier Rorona Plus Alchemist – This game is releasing on Tuesday June 24, it will have a digital only release for the Vita as well, on the same day, and the game will cost you $49.99. It boasts new craft-able items that you can use during battles with enemies (as usual with this series). It also has better graphics, including a totally redone character model for Rorona, as well as better synthesis, crafting, and sports additional playable characters and chapters. I really enjoy these games and I’m looking forward to getting this one as well, I just don’t know if I will do the PS3 version or the digital one for the Vita. Playing the games on both systems has felt good and made sense so I don’t really have a preference. To see some of the game and to see the upgrades click here.
Akiba’s Trip Undead & Undressed – This game is releasing on Wednesday August 6, it will also be available on the Vita and will cost you $39.99. As a nice added bonus there will be shared data between the PS3 and the Vita. According to the Wiki this game is set in Akihabara, where bloodsucking demon creatures have taken over the area. The player is required to defeat these demons by stripping off their clothes and exposing them to sunlight. The storyline revolves around a conspiracy behind the Magaimono organization that the player explores. I have been looking forward to this game for a while and I’m really happy that XSEED is bringing it over! To see the trailer for the game click here.
Only on the Vita:
Disgaea 4 A Promise Revisited – This game is releasing on Wednesday August 6, will be only available on the Vita and will cost you $39.99. The Wiki states that this will be a port of Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten on the Playstation Vita. It contains all of the downloadable content made available in the original PS3 game and also features newly added game content. If you are a fan of tactics based RPGs then you will need to pick this one up for sure! To see the trailer click here.
Hyperdimension Neptunia ReBirth – This game is releasing on Thursday August 26, will be only available on the Vita, and will cost you $39.99. It is a remake of the original game that was on the PS3 for the Vita. The game promises renewed event conversations, graphics and new game mechanics, according to a developer. This game will have a similar fighting style to Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory. It also includes a new ending, and conversations between characters among other things. I adore this series and will be picking this game up as soon as I can! To see the trailer click here.
Only on PS3:
Tales of Xillia 2 – This game is releasing on Tuesday August 19 and will be only available on the PS3. The standard edition will cost you $59.99, and it will also have a collector’s edition for $129.99. The collector’s edition includes: the game, artwork book, soundtrack, Ludger figure, Rollo charm, Pocket Watch replica, and a classic Tales of costume DLC. According to the Wiki, The game takes place after the first Tales of Xillia and follows Ludger Will Kresnik; the Kresnik family has the ability to infiltrate and destroy alternative timelines. Since the spirit Origin is unable to support the abundance of souls, a famous company hires Ludger to destroy alternative timelines to keep the world in balance. I am looking forward to picking this up, however I doubt I will be getting the collector’s edition. That is a hefty price in my opinion, however if the figure looks decent I will probably pick it up.
