Black Rock Shooter: The Game
« on: March 19, 2012, 06:17:44 PM »
Anyone interested in this? Developed by Imageepoch for PSP, published in NA and EU by NIS America and soundtrack composed by Manabu Namiki.

Story:

"The story takes place in 2032 AD after Earth has been assaulted by aliens for 19 years. A battle android named BRS is created solely for the purpose of saving Earth, but she comes to find that only 12 human beings are left on the planet. Kazushige Nojima (Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, Last Order Final Fantasy VII) is the scenario writer and Kazuya Niinou (Trauma Center: Under the Knife, Etrian Odyssey) is the director of the project."

Videos:

Battle
JP CM

Music:

mission : Black Trike
Alien class.A 'SZZU & CKRY / LLWO'
Alien class.A 'XNFE / SAHA'
WRS the Game

For now there's no release date (at least that I know of).

I guess there wasn't actually a dedicated thread for this...it's certainly been discussed in other threads.

Yeah, I'm interested in the game.  I am starting to wonder if it's ever actually getting a release though.

I'd say if NISA doesn't mention it at their press event, it's been cancelled.  I don't think we should judge until then.

I heard the event is early this year. Any exact date on it?

Sounds like it'll be good, but yeah, the lack of any information whatsoever is more than a little worrisome. They announced this months ago, and they haven't said a WORD since.

I spoke with Ryan and Jack from NISA about all their projects in January, and when we talked about BRS they sounded excited and were certainly still working on it. I wouldn't assume it's cancelled, just that they still have awhile to go before it launches. Like, 3Q or 4Q 2012.

Good to know, but that's a risky timeframe for a PSP game.

I think by this point, a company would be foolish not to do a simultaneous release on the Vita marketplace as well...

At this point that may fall on my Sony updating the Vita compatibility. They weren't timely for Hakuoki, hell I'm not even sure it IS supported yet, and that sort of thing could push me to still get physical versions of some of the last PSP games.

For what it's worth I was at the NIS America panel at Sakura-con yesterday and they were asked about Black Rock Shooter.  They insisted that it actually is still coming but they could not talk about any details at this point.  But whatever they're doing it didn't sound like it was canceled.

Don't be surprised if its DD only.

The game will be, but NISA looked into releasing a premium set anyway:
http://www.siliconera.com/2011/09/26/black-rock-shooter-fans-we-need-your-help-to-bring-the-premium-box-out-of-japan/

If you'll notice:
Update: We spoke with NIS America and there is one more change for the box set. It will not include a UMD version of the game. The North American version will include the White Rock Shooter figma, art book, and soundtrack CD minus the song from One OK Rock.

It being download-only is, literally, a given at this point.

Won't that be the first CE of a game to ever, uh, not come with the game?

It probably comes with a download code.  It does just say "No UMD version."

Patapon 2 was released with a physical box even though there was no UMD. It wasn't a special edition, but this isn't completely unprecendented.
