Cross Ange tr. PS Vita Game's Ad Reveals May Release
Bandai Namco Games began streaming a new television commercial for the Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryū no Rondo tr. (with tr. pronounced as 'Trill.') PlayStation Vita game on Saturday. The video reveals that the game inspired by Sunrise's Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryū no Rondo (CROSS ANGE Rondo of Angel and Dragon) anime is slated to ship in Japan on May 28. The character Ange again narrates the video.
Ange: What did you say!? Cross Ange is being turned into a game!?
Text: Dramatic x Shooting action
Ange: So everyone can enjoy our new drama and high-speed action, right? OK, then it's time for me to show off my strength- Wait, who's this girl!? What do you MEAN I'm not the main character!?
The commercial also reveals that the first copies of the game will include an original custom theme for the PlayStation Vita. The theme will feature illustrations of the eight heroines.
The game will star a new original protagonist character named Naomi, who is voiced by Sayuri Hara (Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream, The [email protected] Cinderella Girls). In the game, Naomi fights alongside the Normas in order to return a monetary debt. She graduated from Arzenal's junior class, and now is enrolled in the first brigade. When the creative staff were asked at the second Cross Ange fan event in Ikebukuro last month about Naomi's connection to the owner of the rider suit that appeared in episode two, they replied that there might or not be a connection, and that fans will have to play to find out.
The player will take control of Naomi, and choose which Norma heroines for her to form trusting relationships with. In order to survive, the player will also take part in shooting sections in order to fight dragons.
The game is separated into three parts: the drama part where the story progresses, the customizing part, where the player customizes Naomi's Para-mail with parts bought with money from killing dragons, and the battle part, where Naomi fights incoming foes. By increasing friendships with the Normas in Arzenal during the drama part, Naomi might receive support during battle from those she has befriended.
The Sunrise television anime premiered in Japan in October, Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks licensed the series in North America. The series entered its second half in last month.
