PS3's "1st animation RPG" with Satelight animating in-game movement, battles

Namco Bandai Games began streaming the first regular promotional video for Imageepoch, Namco Bandai Games, and Satelight's Tokitowa role-playing game on Friday. The promotional video highlights the "hand-drawn" animation characters interacting in a 3D world, even in battle and travelling sequences. The game will arrive in Japan in October 11.

Billed as the PlayStation 3's "first animation RPG," the game revolves around an 18-year-old knight, played by Tsubasa Yonaga (Chihayafuru's Tsutomu, Big Windup!'s Ren). The knight is about to marry the Kamuza Kingdom's 16-year-old sorcerer princess named Toki, played by Kana Hanazawa (To Love-Ru's Mikan, Steins;Gate's Mayuri). However, Toki learns from a fortuneteller that someone will attack the two during their wedding ceremony.

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.

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.
