Heroes Phantasia's First Trailer, New ScreensHow many familiar faces can you pick out?11.05.11 - 11:42 PM
Though Namco Bandai and Banpresto's anime crossover RPG Heroes Phantasia
for the PSP was introduced quite some time ago, we haven't gotten a proper trailer until now. Was the eight-minute trailer worth the wait? Check it out:
See some familiar faces? You'll find more of them in our gallery, too. Of note are Zelgadis from Slayers Revolution, Melissa from Rune Soldier, Straight Cougar from S-cry-ed, Drake Anderson from R.O.D Read or Die, and Tamama from Sgt. Frog, among others. As promised, there are original characters in the game as well: Michie Sawada, a friend of the main character who tends to boast about having a really good memory; and Princess Ceriche, the only living member of a royal family. Michie's world has merged with that of the anime characters, both of which are now threatened unless you can save them.
You'll find lots of new screens and some art in our gallery below. Heroes Phantasia for PSP is due out in Japan on January 19th, and you can pick it up in either regular edition form for 6290 yen ($80.39 US), or a special edition for 9980 yen ($127.56 US). The latter includes a book from Newtype, and a soundtrack CD.
