Trinity Universe Confirmed For North America, Europe
Two distinctly Japanese role-playing franchises will come together on the PlayStation 3, much to the delight of hardcore RPG/strategy aficionados everywhere.
Both Disgaea and Atelier have been two successful franchises for Nippon Ichi Software; we've seen plenty of great Disgaea installments since Hour of Darkness debuted on the PS2, and Atelier Iris and Atelier Rorona are examples from the other series. So, how's about combining the two? That's the aim of the Disgaea-Atelier crossover game known as Trinity Universe, and NIS has announced that it will arrive in both North America and Europe this June. However, although it's geared specifically towards the fans, they should know that instead of the standard 2D artistry they've come to expect from both franchises, Trinity Universe is in 3D. So in other words, you'll finally see the Prinny in three dimensions...whether you like it or not. And they're using an entirely new Netheruniverse for the game's setting, so it's not like this is a remake; it's a new IP that simply combines familiar faces and themes. And there's nothing wrong with that.
Developed by Idea Factory, Trinity Universe should appeal to all those who have enjoyed the likes of Disgaea and Atelier in the past. And you probably have enjoyed them if you've been missing traditional turn-based combat...
