New X Edge Details Available
05.11.08 - 2:22 AM

As reported earlier this week, Compile Heart's third PlayStation 3 title will be X Edge (read Cross Edge), an RPG featuring popular characters from multiple games, such as Capcom's Darkstalkers, Bandai Namco Games' Ar Tonelico and Gust's Mana Khemia. Similar to the Monolith Soft-developed PlayStation 2 title Namco x Capcom, X Edge will also feature two original characters, though. The game's protagonist is a young man named Kannagi Yuuto, while the female lead is called Mikoto Aiba. The former has an impulsive character and is quick to get into fights with. He is considered a problem child. Yuuto yields from a family of renowned martial arts experts, and there he is well versed in the art of fighting. However, he dislikes "old-fashioned" martial arts and prefers shooting. He has a lot of confidence in his shooting ability. Mikoto's parents passed away when she was but a child. Since then she has been raised by Yuuto's family. When she was younger, it seemed as if she was sensing the presence of souls, but now she isn't different from any other girl. The decline of her special ability has not been without side effects, as Mikoto keeps seeing nightmares.

Norihisa Kochiwa, who has previously worked on Diairo Rebirth Moon Legend and Shinten Makai: Generation of Chaos IV Another Side, is acting as X Edge's producer, while Agarest Senki (Record of Agarest War) director Kenta Sugano is serving as game designer.

X Edge is currently scheduled for a September release in Japan.
