The final title out of the three revealed at NIS America’s Press Event 2013 is looking pretty sharp. Following the announcement of Disgaea D2: A Brighter Dimension and The Guided Fate Paradox, spiritual successor to Z.H.P. Unlosing Ranger, is Imageepoch’s Time and Eternity. The hand-drawn role-playing game follows the mystery of an engaged couple who must go back in time to stop a killer from murdering them on their wedding day—a murder that occurs shortly before the time shift. Players will be able to wield swords and firearms, as well as manipulate time, in their quest for preventive justice.
The recently announced The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be released for PlayStation 4. Developer CD Projekt RED stated that the last of the series will feature a standalone story so that newcomers can dive in, while series veterans will be able to pick up right where Geralt left off. Wild Hunt marks the last of the series, or at least Geralt of Rivia’s story.
The PSP roguelike Z.H.P. Unlosing Ranger Vs. Darkdeath Evilman is proving as resilient as its namesake with news that its spiritual successor, The Guided Fate Paradox, will be launching later this year for PS3. Developed by the team behind Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, The Guided Fate Paradox will introduce players to Renya Kagurazaka, a high school student who has become a god after winning a mall lottery. In order to fulfill his deity duties, he must travel to the Copy World in order to change the Original World so that people’s wishes come true.
Crystal Dynamic’s Tomb Raider reboot is a few weeks away, and today PC gamers will get to see if their system is up to Lara’s latest adventure. Some of the highlights for the Nixxes-developed PC version include Steamworks integration, higher-quality shadows, and support for Steam Big Picture Mode, AMD HD3D and AMD Eyefinity, gamepads, and Windows XP.
NIS America announced at their latest press event that Disgaea will be returning to the PlayStation this fall with Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness. To celebrate the series’ 10-year anniversary, A Brighter Darkness will bring back Etna, Flonne, and Laharl from the very first entry, 2003’s Hour of Darkness. The new storyline will find a disgruntled Laharl as a disrespected Overlord seeking to earn the fear of his minions. The Item World, Master/Pupil System, and the Geo elements will be returning, as well as an overhauled character-creation system.
FromSoftware will be returning to the world of giant army-crushing robots this summer with Armored Core: Verdict Day for 360 and PS3. Publisher Namco Bandai announced that players will battle alone or in squads of up to 20 friends for the remaining scraps in a resource-starved, war-torn world. In-game factions can also be hired to lend a hand for solo pilots as they battle for territories controlled by other players in a persistent multiplayer mode.
