It's true. Aya Brea herself is an incentive for picking up The 3rd Birthday , the long-awaited Parasite Eve iteration.
But there's nothing wrong with that. And don't think Square-Enix isn't well aware of the titillation factor; along with tight jeans that get ripped when taking damage, several provocative pictures floating around the Internet in the form of game promotion, we now learn about the costumes. That's right, she won't always be wearing rippable jeans, because she has also been seen in a business suit and most recently, a skimpy maid outfit . They're not just for show, either; as you can see in that pic from Japanese publication Jump Festa, Aya is clearly taking on a big baddie in her maid uniform. And yes, technically, Aya is 39 years old but you can't really say she has aged amazingly well. As part of the story, Aya doesn't have to worry about the depression and sagging body that comes along with old age. …good way to keep fans interested.
Anyway, this is one game that should be great, regardless of cute blonde girls who make every outfit appear just a tad naughty. The 3rd Birthday is due out next month in Japan.
