If you’re a fan of the army versus army concept behind titles like Yggdra Union, take note here. A new title that Atlus and developer Sting are working on is a new title in that franchise, which will be hitting the PSP this Summer in Japan, titled Gloria Union. This week Famitsu released the first screens and artwork for the title. If you’ll take a look at the actual screenshots, you’ll be very familiar with them if you’re a fan of the previous Union titles.
This time the story revolves around Euphoria (original name, I know), a kingdom in which a culture developed around a great power called “Will”. After thousands of years, some dastardly pirates set off to find a huge reserve of that ancient power in the form of a crystal. The artwork shows off two of the main characters in the game – Ishuto and his friend Pinga. They are part of this band of merry pirates that look to cash in off the discovery of this crystal of “Will”. My guess is that these two have a change of heart at some point, but maybe I’m just playing into JRPG stereotypes.
Hit the break to check out the goods. We’ll see Gloria Union on shelves for the PSP in Japan on June 23, 2011.
