    HOLY SHIT IT’S SO GORGEOUS. I’ve been dying for a modern or sci-fi Vanillaware. And here it is. Jesus christ. The classroom and city look so beautiful in Vanillaware’s style. I WANT IT. I’m getting a PS4 just for this.

    I think Pacific Rim made a really nice impression even in Japan, hahaha. Anyway, I’m really curious about how this is going to work in the end. Right now we can say the walking parts look gorgeous, if a bit empty, but, no gameplay yet.
    Anyway, one more VIta game for me, haahah.

    Definitely! Looking at their track record with games, I have to say I am looking forward to any new releases they make.

    Reminds me of Gunbuster, especially the girl in the Bloomers. Even Vanillaware has fallen into the high school setting, with even an obligatory Yuji Everylead the Bland!

    I do wonder if it’s top down, though.

    Same here. I hope it will come with a mini artbook (just like Dragon’s Crown and Odin Sphere Lifthrasir).

    My god, this is so beautiful! Their art is so damn gorgeous. It wouldn’t look out of place in a museum.

    I also hope it manages to trigger Mr. Schreier somehow.

    Damn, I don’t know about the 3D environments mixed with the 2D characters, in some places it works but I get this paper mario feel.

    But this is obviously not game footage, expecially the robot part with the explosion. I have faith it will be brilliant. GK can do no wrong.

    Not a surprise really. They’ve only ever done two non PlayStation games.

    I prefer mech games in first person, but obviously this one was never going to be in first person. Looks great art wise and I’m excited to see some gameplay. Hopefully it gets localized.

    this looks insane
    those designs
    those robots
    that art
    that music
    that atmosphere
    that everything

    shame it’s not on PS3 or PC, I can’t seriously get a PS4 just for this game and getting it on a mobile screen would be a shame

    where’s that PC petition come on

    and that robot action looks so cool
    they’ve proven they can do fantasy, now they’re doing sci fi and it looks great
