Atlus is brining Agashima Entertainment’s 3DS action brawler Code of Princess to North America this fall.
The game blends fighting gameplay with that of classic arcade side-scrolling beat ’em ups and the character development and customization of an RPG. It will allow up to four players to play together in online or local co-op, and up to two players in competitive multiplayer.
“Developed by an all-star team of industry veterans, Code of Princess is unlike anything else available for Nintendo 3DS,” commented Tim Pivnicny, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Atlus. “Fans of action will savor the game’s combat, which is loaded with satisfying chain attacks and plenty of depth–both in terms of attack options and also quite literally in the sense that battlefields employ a three-railed design, letting players move forward and back as tactics dictate.
“Fans of RPGs will relish the ability to level and improve their characters, converting their gained experience into boosts for the stats that best suit their play style and tactics. This appealing amalgam of game designs is wrapped in a beautiful package, boasting lovingly rendered and animated characters and eye-catching flurries of punches and kicks. With something for virtually every kind of old-school gamer and with an esteemed pedigree to draw upon, Code of Princess is certain to be one of the most anticipated Nintendo 3DS games of the year.”
Consumers who pre-order Code of Princess will receive a Sound & Visual Book, “a collection of art work from famed designer Kinu Nishimura and music from ACE’s stellar soundtrack,” free of charge.
