Tenco and Mages game to be published by Fruitbat Factory
Last time we posted about Eiyuu Senki was back when the (previously erotic) tactical RPG's PlayStation 3 port was on the way in Japan. Now, thanks to fan demand, the port is coming to North America and Europe. MAGES published the Tenco-developed moe tactics action in Japan, and independent localization group Fruitbat Factory is in charge of bringing it to the west.
Eiyuu Senki features over 70 characters by renowned artist Oyari Ashito and "other industry stars." According to Fruitbat's graphics and marketing lead Ozhan Sen, "After a successful launch of operations on the PC market, we were looking for an opportunity to expand to console gaming. With Eiyuu Senki we found the chance to do it with a bang. It is a funny mix of a strategy game, RPG and visual novel that will forever change how you remember historical figures"
Here's the synopsis and some release info:
In a world where powerful nations run rampant and heroes battle one another for supremacy, the great nation of Britannia seeks to unite the world through peaceful means while the European Union has adopted an aggressive policy and the Seafaring Nation of Vinland thrives on pillage and plunder. Far in the east, the small nation of Zipang is stuck fast in a quagmire of civil unrest.
In the midst of all this, our memory-loss stricken main character has a fateful meeting with a Hero of Yamatai, Himiko. Together they settle Zipang's internal disputes and set off into a world covered with the burning embers of war.
“As long-time fans of tactical RPGs we’re very excited to get to work on this title, which we’ve seen many fans wishing to be localized. We are aiming to release Eiyuu Senki simultaneously in North America and Europe, and will give more updates as they happen.” adds Jakke Elonen, project lead.
