Don't be fooled by the controversial anime-style sexual content; there really is a niche JRPG beneath that titillating exterior. Well, kinda.
According to the recently launched website for Record of Agarest War , it is now clear that Aksys Games (publisher of BlazBlue ) will bring this title to the PlayStation Network some time soon. Developed by Compile Heart, the game has made the Internet rounds…based on the picture you see through that link, this shouldn't surprise you in the least. On the gameplay level, Agarest War does feature an interesting "Soul Breed" system that lets the protagonist create many relationships with female NPCs, and it's unlikely that you'll be talking business. This will probably be a large downloadable title for the Network – perhaps one of the biggest we've seen – as it is indeed a full-length title, not originally designed for the digital format. We're waiting on a price and date for North America, but in the meantime, we figured you'd want a heads-up on the matter because you've likely never played it before. Record of Agarest War is one of those games where you'll have to suspend belief (and perhaps morality) for a little while, if you're willing to indulge in some adolescent virtual pursuits.
Does anyone remember the dating side-quests you could do in Thousand Arms ? This is like that, only on a much, much more expanded scale…
