13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim announced for the west
Atlus announced today that 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim will be coming to both North America and Europe. Odin Sphere and Dragon's Crown director George Kamitani once again takes the helm in this science fiction departure from VanillaWare's usual. It takes place in a modern backdrop where giant mechs exist - so queue your Evangelion jokes right now. This is how Atlus describes the game on the official website:
A departure from the studio’s traditional fantasy style, the game takes place in a modern setting punctuated with giant mechs. Although the world may be bleak, Vanillaware’s signature artistic shine and gorgeous aesthetics will bring the characters and story of 13 Sentinels to life.
Unfortunately, the press release we received from Atlus was light on details. No platforms were announced despite it coming to the PlayStation 4 and Vita in Japan, and there was no word on a scheduled release date. It seems we'll have to wait until E3 where it was recently leaked to be making an appearance.
