As a reminder, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim is a “Dramatic Adventure” game by Vanillaware, meaning it’ll be similar to a visual novel rather than an Action RPG; The story takes place in a fictional version of eighties Japan and features high schoolers piloting giant robots. For now, there has been no word from Sega on an English version of 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim Prologue. 

13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim’s release date is currently undecided. The game will launch exclusively for PlayStation 4.
