Battle Princess Of Arcadias
« on: May 28, 2013, 08:27:46 PM »
I know there is not much about this yet (no screens or any concrete info) in circulation but when I read this...
http://www.siliconera.com/2013/05/28/battle-princess-of-arcadias-gives-you-an-army-to-control/
... I couldn't help but become excited over the prospect of a metroid-vania title with a touch of Disgaea. In spite of my disdain for the prinny platformers they did for the psp (ok... so the games were alright, I just SUCKED at them with a capital SUCK... not fun) I am still sort of stoked to see what they pull off with this. The fact that it is for PS3 and not the vita only compounds my enthusiasm.

Odd with a tentative release of late september there isn't more info though...
In this world is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcedental entity or law? is it like the hand of god hovering above? Perhaps Man has no control even over his own will…

I dunno, Plants vs. Zombies 2 is due out in July and we haven't seen much more than a YouTube teaser.  Still, more Metriodvania is always a good thing, no matter what form it takes.

If it makes you feel better, Klyde, the Prinny game was known for being brutally hard.  I also did not do very well at it.

That actually does make me feel a bit better. I thought I was as embarrassingly horrible at action/platformers as I am at 3d fighters whilst playing the prinny games... I played Megaman 10 shortly after and self esteem dropped even further...

Wait, you didn't know? They were always upfront about it.  They gave you 1000 lives to start with for a reason...

I could make it through most of the platforming sections of Prinny (never played the sequel...), but some of those boss fights were cheap as heck.  Never did finish it...
