30w ago - UFO Interactive Games Producer Andrew Wang has shared a video today announcing that Eliminage Original brings deep RPG customization to PSP today.
To quote: I think RPG gamers need no introduction to the concept of customization. In Elminage Original, the customization options are... abundant, to say the least.
There are 12 character races and 16 classes to choose from, so players will be able to tailor their party to suit their specific play styles.
Elminage Original is a dungeon-crawling RPG, and it doesn't try to hide it. It doesn't waste time hand-holding, and it lets you jump into the action very quickly if you so choose.
Parties are formed in groups of six, so whether you think you'll do better with Humans, Fairies, Werebeasts, or Magic Dolls, you can rest assured that there are plenty of combinations to try!
Customization is a big reason why I love RPG's. When I start to play a new RPG, I tend to get caught up when I'm allowed an unlimited amount of time to grind and discover new tactics, and I spend way too many hours doing so. I'm sure that some of you reading this know exactly what I am talking about.
In the case of Elminage Original, I even spent time customizing my entire party to make sure that they all had matching themed portraits....
33w ago - XSeed Games Production Assistant Brittany Avery has posted up a video today on Ragnarok Odyssey, a giant-sized RPG that is assaulting PS Vita today!
To quote: Are you ready, guys? Because right now it's Ragnarok Odyssey happy hour!
Or more like Happy Day, since today we celebrate the release of our precious PS Vita title. It's been a lengthy localization journey, but we're proud to bring out the Ragnarok Odyssey Standard Edition for $39.99, as well as the Mercenary Edition, which includes a meaty monster guide with artwork, a full soundtrack, and 10 randomized collectable monster cards out of over 50 for $49.99.
The game itself is the real star of the show, though. Think of it kind of like Monster Hunter or Gods Eater, but with more of a Norse mythology twist and a battle system that's all about knocking your enemies high into the air, then flying up after them and flinging them all over creation before slamming them back down into the hard dirt below.
It's a great game to pick up and play anytime, as you can just grab a quest...
36w ago - Cyanide Producer Sylvain Sechi has shared a video trailer today announcing that the PS3 action RPG Of Orcs and Men is hitting PSN this Tuesday.
To quote: Hi PlayStation players, this is Sylvain from Cyanide. I'm here to give you an introduction to the world of Greenskins and humans.
Of Orcs and Men is an action RPG, taking place in a dark and mature universe where Greenskins (orcs and goblins) have finally been defeated after a long war against the human kingdom.
The emperor has decided that, in order to prevent any further war against the Greenskins, it's best to just commit full-on genocide - unfortunately for you, you'll be controlling an orc and a goblin.
As the game starts, Arkail (the massive orc) and Styx (the stealthy goblin) are among the last of their race still alive. They are sent on a suicide mission - to reach the land of the humans and assassinate the Emperor, thus stopping the massacre and enslavement of greenskins.
Originally, while playing with the prototype, we enjoyed controlling Styx and Arkail individually, but even more, we liked the combinations they could have. We kept improving features to make them as unique as possible, but we also worked on tandem attacks for use in combat (like throwing...
37w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton has shared an interview today with Namco Bandai on their upcoming Tales of Xillia RPG series video game below.
To quote: Good news for anyone who's been enjoying Namco Bandai's enormous JRPG Tales of Graces F since its launch back in August: its immediate successor, Tales of Xillia, is on its way exclusively to PlayStation 3 in 2013.
We've struggled our way through an hour or so of the original Japanese version, which launched overseas back in 2011, and the 13th entry in the long-running series brings with it a number of significant new innovations for the much-loved franchise.
Duly, we took the time to check in with producer Hideo Baba while in Tokyo last month to find out exactly what fans should expect.
PlayStation Blog: What are the key new additions to the Tales formula since Tales of Graces?
Hideo Baba, Producer: There are many unique features in Xillia but I'd like to emphasise that the battle system is very unique and much improved over the previous title. Also, the portrayal of the game world and its atmosphere has also changed a lot too.
In the previous games the characters were very deformed - they were much shorter - but with Xillia the team has tried to show the characters in realistic proportions...
42w ago - Lockwood Publishing Director Sophia Coney has posted up a video today which showcases Mercia: Fractured Realms providing an in-depth look at PlayStation Home's first free-to-play Fantasy RPG.
To quote: Mercia: Fractured Realms is a beautifully detailed and expansive free-to-play fantasy RPG for PlayStation Home.

We are very pleased to have been able to develop something in the fantasy genre with this project. It's no secret that there is already a surplus of fantasy games available; despite this, we believe we have achieved something truly fresh and original.
With the visual design alone, you can see this isn't your typical kind of fantasy clothing and armour - drawing inspiration from various world cultures and ancient civilisations ensured the end result would...
