Today Atlus USA and Vanillaware released a new trailer of 13 Sentinels: Aegis rim.

13 Sentinels: Aegis rim is the next game by Dragon’s Crown developer Vanillaware, featuring the usual striking art style by George Kamitani.

“Life as you know it is ending because 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim will be localized and released in the West by ATLUS. The upcoming title is being developed by Vanillaware and directed by George Kamitani (Dragon’s Crown and Odin Sphere). A departure from the studio’s traditional fantasy style, the game takes place in a modern setting punctuated with giant mechs. Although the world may be bleak, Vanillaware’s signature artistic shine and gorgeous aesthetics will bring the characters and story of 13 Sentinels to life.”

The trailer can be seen below, and interestingly it still does not mention any platform. The press release doesn’t include any as well, even if the Japanese website for the game keeps indicating PS4 and PS Vita.

This is a bit of a mystery, since the platforms have been recently removed from the western website, probably indicating that Atlus USA hasn’t decided yet on which consoles support for the western market.

The game was announced back in September 2015 at Sony’s Tokyo Game Show press conference, but to be totally honest, we haven’t seen much of it just yet. That said, if it’s as good as Dragon’s Crown (if you’re unfamiliar with it, you can read our review), we can definitely rest easy.
