Namco Bandai Games began streaming the main promotional video for its upcoming M3 The Dark Metal Mission Memento Mori PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4 game on Wednesday.
The video begins with the following dialogue and text:
Akashi: Is it going to end in a place like this...?
Akashi: I felt like I could hear a song coming from somewhere... Who's the one singing it...?
Text: A conclusion that was impossible.
Akashi: I gave up on fighting and closed my eyes.
Text: A new possibility is born through a game.
Text: Where will the story that is woven by eight girls and boys end up?
The “Memento Mori” in the title is Latin for “Remember that you will die.”
The game is slated to ship in Japan on November 20. The PS Vita version will retail for 6,170 yen (about US$60), while the PlayStation 4 version will sell for 7,120 yen (about US$70).
