Namco Bandai Games began streaming a short movie for Imageepoch, Namco Bandai Games, and Satelight's Tokitowa role-playing game on Thursday. The 56-second video centers around Towa, the hidden alter ego of Princess Toki.
Toki is about to marry the game's player character when he is mortally wounded before her eyes during the wedding ceremony. This shocking event awakens the Towa persona, and she attacks the mysterious enemy. Toki/Towa then uses temporal magic and journeys into the past with the player.
Billed as the PlayStation 3's "first animation RPG," the game features "hand-drawn" animation characters interacting in a 3D world, even in battle and travelling sequences. The game will arrive in Japan in October 11.
The anime studio Satelight (Macross Frontier, Aquarion Evol, Mōretsu Pirates, AKB0048) is animating the game in collaboration with the production company Bandai Namco Games and popular Japanese role-playing game developer Imageepoch (Fate/Extra, Luminous Arc, 7th Dragon). Bakemonogatari illustrator VOFAN is contributing to this game.
Kay Hirano (Macross Frontier: Sayonara no Tsubasa Hybrid Pack, Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Battle Destiny) and Kensuke Tsukanaka (Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier) are producing the game, and Yūzō Koshiro (7th Dragon 2020, Otomedius X, Shenmue) is serving as sound composer.
