Interesting.

I heard Dragon's Crown were opening for Blind Guardian in Spain.
 
Fuckin' shit dude, that Sorceress must have back problems.

Posted by kingzetta

look at those gams

Posted by august

The difference between this and Frazetta is that Frazetta understood anatomy.

Hopefully this game will be just as good as Odin Sphere. The style is just as unique and beautiful as Vanillaware's previous games.

Jeezus, those women are just WRONG.

Posted by Duecenage

I'm flippin' stoked that Vanillaware is doing an HD game!

So absurd it's gross.

Posted by Roddykat

Is this truly the age of dragons...?

Also, Amazon's got a big ol' butt (say what?)

Posted by rndmtask

What a weird-ass looking game

Posted by vhodhvhodh

Now there's some physical impossibilities, yup.

Posted by JohnPaulVann

this looks like more fun than a roll in the hay with Jeff!

Alright, Vanillaware. Weird how I could tell who it was just based on the screenshot.

@Roddykat: You know I told you I'd be true, but...

Frank Frezzeta paintings were never exactly right to begin with.

When I saw the Amazon I figured you made a misnomer, but then I saw the sorceress... and... fuckin' shit, dude!

Posted by AuthenticM

I'd hit that sorceress.

Did Itagaki start working at Vanillaware because the Sorceresses boobs are DoA big?

Posted by Kosayn

This game looks top to bottom like an update on D&D Tower of Doom (or Shadow of Mystara, for younger arcade rats).  I just wish they'd shown us some inventory management, loot, or hidden passages to confirm it.
 
If so - stoked.  If it's just a fighter, not as much.

Topless Sorceress, hell yeah!!!!

...somehow the size is a turn off

Posted by AncientMecha

Embarrassingly large...

Psh, Vanillaware characters been having big boobs for a while. Like the queen of the netherworld in Odin's Sphere.

I have a strange feeling that the Japanese collector's edition will have some sort of pillow based on the Sorceress.

Posted by HerbieBug

Fighter!  Wizard!  Gigantic boobs lady!

The wizard looks normal, but the Amazon looks fucked up.

You might be on to something there Boobz- er I mean Koobz.

Posted by Toxin066

That wizard was a badass.

Posted by shamanultra

For people who claim that you don't like giant boobs you seem to not be able to pay attention to anything but that when a Japanese game has them among other things such actual good gameplay. Get your priorities straight, would you actually skip on a good game just because of some tits? 

Edited by Vager

One women has an oversized ass while another has oversized breasts. I'll stick with the normal archer girl.

Still, the graphical style looks awesome.

Posted by LiquidSwords

Odin Sphere, a great PS2 game no one played

Posted by Mojokilla

Lol, looks like a Monty Python Anime... Love it. Now let's hope it doesn't play like ass... =/

Posted by Drod

I just want to know what the design doc for this game looked like.

Posted by Nexas

Christ, the Amazon's thighs makes Chun-li's look like a prepubescent girl's.

Posted by MisterMouse

the boobs seem really weird...

Posted by HarlequinRiot

The character designs are ridiculous enough to be acceptable. It's when they're in the "too big for a normal person, but not humorously big" that you run into problems. 

Posted by uberscooby

Come on PSVita!

Posted by Xpgamer7

Really Really weird and bad character art. On the other hand I like the 2-D yet somehow 3D look.

oh they understand it just fine...they just don't give a fuck
Posted by Mumrik

People fucking love this visual style, but I mostly see choppy animation and a mess of huge characters.

Posted by Saryy42

I think I went blind when I saw the screen cap of the amazon. I'm pretty sure it's at least part man.

Posted by buhssuht

gameplay seems similar to Golden Axe

Don't forget the fox ladies in Muramasa either. Looks like George Kamitani really isn't bothering to hide his love for big breasts this time.

Posted by Raakill

Looks silly as hell.

Posted by ahgunsillyo

Those busty ladies are missing their nipples.
 
 
I'm sorry, Japan, but... breasts don't work like that.

Edited by Kosayn

The character design overall is great.  The fighter's outrageous armor is something they clearly had fun with, the Amazon isn't so crazy when you think about the dudebros in Gears, and the rest are gaming stereotypes, no big deal.
 
The torches they're carrying, the drawbridges, all sorts of other little cues make me think of the D&D arcade games.   After googling a bit, it seems Vanillaware's George Kamitani directed those games for Capcom, so it makes sense.
 
Anyway, nice to finally have a game I care about on either new portable, thanks for covering it.

Posted by coakroach

Oh Japan. You so crazy.

Posted by Abram03

I gotta say, looks great!  Kind of like Golden Axe for a new age.  I ain't got a PS3 though (monetary constraints).  Maybe they'll do a 360 version?
 
Have you noticed that Japanese developers are really getting into those big meaty asses?

Posted by Brendan

The female characters freak me out. Other than that, it looks like a serviceable sidescrolling brawler.

Posted by ikabubu

I'm reminded why I liked Odin Sphere, but I'm not completely sold on the co-op. I liked the involved single-player experience, as repetitive as some would say it was. 
 
And, are my hears decieving me? 
That sound, that SOUND? Is it Hitoshi Sakimoto? 
It IS!!! 
 
I think I'll go dig out my copy of Vagrant Story.
