Japanese developer Artdink has revealed a new game, Neo Atlas 1469.
We’ve gotten the first screenshots and details from this week’s Famitsu. The new PS Vita game is a revival of sorts of their cartography and discovery-age based simulation franchise.
The game is set in the aforementioned Age of Discovery, where mankind has yet to explore and chart the entire planet. Players will begin in Europe as a Portuguese merchant, who is tasked with acting as a merchant while exploring and mapping out the unknown.
Periodically, players will have to listen to reports from their superiors, which can range from generating new maps of yet-to-be-explored areas, and maybe even sea monsters. As you explore these uncharted lands, you’ll update the map accordingly to what you see firsthand.
Neo Atlas 1469 is launching for PS Vita in Japan on October 27th.
