NIS Announces Original PSP RPGNIS working on spiritual successor to Rhapsody.07.08.09 - 6:11 PM
Nippon Ichi Software is working on a new strategy RPG for PlayStation Portable. Titled Antiphona no Seikahime: Tenshi no Gakufu Op.A
, the game will be reminiscent of Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure
(and other games in the Marl's Kingdom
series), as these games will share the "music" theme. In the world of Antiphona
, music can be transformed into magic. The game's protagonist, a young girl by the name of Miabel, has to find a way to bring back the voice of her sister, which was stolen by the Demon King. The musical theme, however, won't be limited to the story, but also feature heavily in the gameplay. Event scenes, for instance, will feature dancing and singing not unlike a musical performance. Be it standard conversations or important event scenes, Antiphona
will offer full voice acting. The game is scored by NIS' veteran composer Tenpei Sato.
Antiphona no Seikahime: Tenshi no Gakufu Op.A has yet to receive an official release date.
