Knights In The Nightmare Trailer Oozes Atlus Goodness

Atlus has been a friend to the role-playing fan for years, and that friendship will only strengthen over time.

Atlus has released a new trailer for their highly anticipated PSP RPG, Knights in the Nightmare, and it showcases the game's excellent artistry and in-depth gameplay. Described as a cross between action and strategy role-playing and a "once-in-a-lifetime experience," the game mixes fast, intricate action with thought-provoking tactical strategy. Somehow, they've managed to incorporate elements from the RPG, RTS, and even shooter genres; you will control the Wisp and activate the souls of deceased knights to become your allies. With over 100 characters to find and recruit, 7 different knight classes, and the lore encompassing all their pasts, dreams and deaths, the game is bound to immerse you immediately.

"A tale thrice told" and exclusive to the PSP, Knights in the Nightmare will boast Princess Yggdra as a third playable character. For all the details and info, be sure to visit the game's official site. Atlus will once again deliver a game likely to be loved by its loyal following of fans on October 19; don't discount it amidst the heavy-hitting blockbusters for consoles.

It... looks... weird?

I dunno, I got immediately turned off by the gameplay in the vid, looked like alot of things happening at the same time, and I hate it when I can't keep up with what's happening.

This game is pretty insane but lots of fun once you get the hang of it.. Just do yourself a favor and use the tutorial.

I'll be on that one. Looks just like what my psp is missing. Anyone hear about the psp/Android phone coming out? Wonder if it boasts the same power as a psp.

blessing and a curse it seems. I'm glad to see all the love the psp is getting, but at the same time it seems the only way to sate my rpg love is to either buy psp games or ps2 games.

Granted I'm loving all the ps2 games that I have been playing recently since I missed them back in the day, but it would be nice to have some full sized ps3 quality rpgs gracing my shelves more than once per year.

I put 70 hours into Jeanne D'Arc on the PSP and recommend that game to anyone. This looks similar in a SRPG way so could be a pickup. Valkyria Chronicles 2 is looking good as well.

I haven't bought a game for my PSP since Gran Turismo so it's been a bit neglected.

I've plugged 50 hours THIS WEEK ALONE with Atlus's other baby, Persona 3 Portable, so they've won a fan in me so I may be picking this up.

Looks like they've really pushed the PS1 to it's limits this time.

This habit of bringing niche GBA/DS games to the PSP is awesome and the only thing more I could wish for is that we'd get more timely releases. I play these games on my DS, because the DS is a freaking japanese rpg god machine, but that's only because many of these games only come out on the DS. There's no good reason we can't get a PSP version of the newer portable Shin Megami Tensei games, especially considering the 3DS is already getting a port of SMT: Devil Survivor.

It might be different when the 3DS comes out, but right now these games would look better and play more comfortably on a PSP, so I wish more games would make the jump.
