Was invited along with a load of other game industry folks to a press conference held by a company called ImageEpoch. They've made a few game titles in the past and today they announced that they will be releasing a ton of titles under their JRPG brand including the "Black Rock Shooter The Game" which will be due out on the PSP next Summer. And before I continue, see the trailer revealed at the press event below.
GSC Boss and producer of Black Rock Shooter Aki Takanori came along to talk about the game which is set in the year 2032. Earth has been invaded by a load of baddies and their "Mecha."
Earths final hope are the BRS...
There will be two versions of the PSP game. The standard version at 6279 yen and special edition at 10479 yen.
The Special edition will include a load of illustrations by Huke, a White version of "Black Rock Shooter", something called "Black Rock Shooter Artworks" and a limited edition soundtrack.
Japanese RPG games are known to get a bashing from folks outside of Japan which is noted in the last bit of this slide. JRPG = Japanese Role Playing Game.
The only RPG that I've really played is the first Furai no Shiren on the GameBoy. Learned a load of Japanese from that game.
These days however, I prefer games where I can shoot or kick somebody within a few seconds from starting the game ^^; Games like Bayonetta, Street Fighter or Axelay.
What do you think about Japanese RPG's? Which ones have you played?
