The most recent effort from Atlus and Vanillaware in collaboration form was Dragon’s Crown, the fun 2D hack ‘n slash RPG that created a storm of criticism because of its insanely proportioned female characters.
Some remember it for its art, while others remember it because, well, it was an enjoyable game.
Now the pair of game makers are back to deliver another project. They’ve announced that they’ll reveal an “HD Project” next week on July 20 at 8pm in Japan. That means 7am on Monday next week here on the east coast of the U.S. where I’m writing.
What could it be? Well, the screenshot from the site that you see above suggests something from Odin Sphere. Why? fans have pointed out that the touch me dialogue looks like that of the Odin Sphere ilk and the sapling is pulled straight from the series as well.
Who knows? I wouldn’t be mad about three possibilities: Dragon’s Crown 2, Odin Sphere in HD or, well, anything else. I’m wide open on this one.
