Record of Agarest War 2 announced for North America and Europe

 

Aksys has announced that Record of Agarest War 2 will be arriving to North America and Europe next summer for the PS3. The game will feature a revamped battle system, HD graphics, a free roaming world map, and new Playstation Move minigames.

I’ve just recently gotten into the Agarest series myself, having played through the first generation in Agarest War, but so far I’ve really enjoyed my time with the game and have been secretly hoping we’d see the sequel arrive in the states. Thankfully Aksys knows what we want and plans to deliver.

The new battle system is what has me the most excited about this game. However, I know the fanservice that is associated with the series, and in the trailer above for that matter, may be a turn off for some people, but it really only makes up a small part of the games. I’d recommend doing some research to see that the games consist of more than just suggestive scenes, and now apparently random singing and dancing. But I have to admit, I can’t help but imagine the awkward fun to be had when trying to give your female party members massages with the Move.

BIT.TRIP SAGA Coming to 3DS

That’s all six games, Beat, Core, Void, Runner, Fate, and Flux, coming to the 3DS, in one cartridge. Aksys Games has also stated that the game will also have Stereoscopic 3D. No word yet on how some of the games will function (Some are no-brainers, others like Flux make me wonder). So for those who always wanted to play the games but didn’t have a chance (or you’re too rightfully scared to buy them off WiiWare), now you can play all six games on the go. Aksys has no release date yet, but I’m guessing we’ll be getting it this year.

Also, now I get the meaning of that 3D Commander Video picture that circulated the interwebs sometime ago.
