Ore no Shikabane o Koete Yuke 2, Mobile Suit Gundam: Try Age SP, and Shallie no Atelier Koukon no Umi no Renkinjutsu - RELEASE HIGHLIGHTS!

Welcome to our Weekly Release Highlights! Some more handheld love and a treat for Atelier fans is on the books for this week!


PlayStation®Vita [RPG]

Developed by Alfa System and published by Sony Computer Entertainment, Ore no Shikabane o Koete Yuke 2 is a sequel to 2011 PSP game Ore no Shikabane wo Koete Yuke, the original title translating to "Over My Dead Body". The art in the original is a large part of the franchises' fandom, and we will be seeing the return of the iconic Japanese ink-wash art style in the sequel! All characters will be rendered in 3D. 

Free your kinsmen from a tragic curse in Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines! Your lineage has been tainted, causing members of your family to die in just two years. Take on the duty of leading your clan in a journey to break the hereditary curse and make sure each new generation of the clan is more powerful than the last! 

You will need to be ready to fight when the older generations' time is up, manage the clan's resources to stay alive, and send out raiding groups to hunt vicious demons all the while strengthening the clan's stronghold. Construct new weapons and guarantee that the new generations of warriors stand ready to fight an invading army of demons and monsters. Every victory over demons, players will accumulate points that will permit them to marry deities and produce children with them; in just six months time these children will mature and will inherit the faces of their parents.

Nintendo3DS™ [Strategy / TCG]

Mobile Suit Gundam: Try Age SP is based on the real time strategy trading card game of the same name in arcades and should features mecha from Gundam Build Fighters, Gundam UCZ Gundam, and the original Mobile Suit Gundam.

The gameplay revolves around how players build their platoons, using a set of three different Mobile Suit cards as well as three pilot cards. Local multiplayer for Mobile Suit Gundam: Try Age SP has also been confirmed.

Unfortunately, the chances of the title being localized are incredibly slim - but not impossible. However, the good news is First Print Editions will include a set of trading cards that can be used with the arcade version!

PlayStation®3 [RPG]

Atelier returns with the third installment in the "Dusk" storyline! Set 6 years after the start of Dusk Sky you are once again given the choice of two different plot lines: that of Shallistera and Shallotte, two alchemists dealing with an extreme drought. 

Shallistera's story reveals many of the mysteries of the series, while Shallotte's story will reveal more about the daily life in the affected world. After meeting each other, Shallistera and Shallotte will grow by fulfilling goals through teamwork and their friendship is one of the elements that the story will focus on.

The concept and theme of choice continues with the brand new goal management system known as the "life task system" - essentially a personalized 'to do' list for the player.  The life task system will give you different tasks based on how you play and how far you've progressed. Spend all your time on the battlefield? Expect battle-related tasks.  The life tasks are a requirement, failure to accomplish tasks results in a penalty, and play a role in driving the games pacing. As they are truly personalized you should expect to be doing more of whatever it is you love about Atelier!
