New protagonist Naomi must bond with heroines in order to cooperate in battle in May 28 game

The official website for the the Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryū no Rondo tr. PlayStation Vita game began streaming the full promotional video for the game on Tuesday.

The character introductions feature the following dialogue:

Naomi: I'm Naomi! I was finally able to become a Mail-Rider, something I've always wanted to be, but during a training session I encountered DRAGONs! To make things worse, I fell and lost consciousness. What was waiting for me when I woke up was days of running around Arzenal, trying to pay back my debt from the Para Mail I crashed!
Ange: Why don't you do what you want? Though, I have no intention of being friendly with you or anything.
Salia: Don't have too high of hopes.
Hilda: Looks like a fun toy has joined the team.
Naomi: Not to mention, the members of Ange's team that I joined are all against each other, and their teamwork is a wreck!
Vivian: Ooh, you came at a good time! Quiz time for Naomi!
Ersha: Well... That's-a-se-cret.
Naomi: I'm doing my best to make everyone get along, but...
Rosalie: Aw man, I seriously want to shoot that girl down.
Chris: I wouldn't team up with that damn pig even if I was dead.
Naomi: Can I really unite the first company, which has so many peculiarities? And survive??

The game will feature 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 first half of the game will focus on DRAGON-hunting, but characters that appear later in the anime, like Salamandinay and Embryo, will also appear in the game.

The game will ship on May 28. 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 Sunrise television anime premiered in Japan in October, Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks licensed the series in North America.
