VIDEO: First Trailer for Satelight Animated RPG "Toki to Towa"

Coming in 2012 from Imageepoch and Bandai Namco

We first mentioned the upcoming PS3 game Toki to Towa less than a week ago, but already here comes the first trailer. There's not a ton of in-game footage, but you do get to see a smidge:

 

 

This video was revealed at an Imageepoch press conference, which was live streamed on Nico Nico Douga. The Q&A proved insightful as Imageepoch CEO Ryoei Mikage took questions from stream viewers. For one thing, the game will be closer to an action RPG than a turn-based one. Timing-wise it sounds like they are optimistic that it'll be ready to show off at TGS, and that it probably won't take all the way until winter to release. Where does leave us, somewhere in November? (I'm just joking.) As of right now, the game is 20% complete.


We can expect some DLC, although it's not clear what kind. We can also expect cheaters, unless Mikage was kidding around—he said you can choose, but also cheat on your wife. 

 

The voice actors for the two main characters, Tsubasa Yonaga and Kana Hanazawa, presented a taped message where they seemed to contradict the official bio of the protagonist by calling him "pure" (as opposed to eager to get onto what's "after" marriage), and revealed that Toki, the heroine, has a big secret. 

 

What do you think of the split-second you managed to glimpse of the game in motion? Mikage joked that it was mistaken as anime by older members of his staff, so could the hitherto unknown feeling of controlling HD animation really be on its way?
