Tri-Ace developing new RPG – hints at robots?

Submitted by on Wednesday, 1 April 20096 Comments

RPG. New. Thanks to a heads-up from our friends at Talk PlayStation, details are emerging regarding a new PS3 bound RPG from tri-Ace.

Clicking on this patent link will ultimately redirect you to tri-Ace’s homepage and the announcement that a new RPG is coming, and a countdown.

What do the makers of Star Ocean and other much loved RPGs have planned? Luckily, someone around here speaks Japanese.

As seen from the attached screen-shot of the homepage, there is very little on display here but, if you’re wondering what all that Japanese text alludes to; here’s a somewhat basic translation:

  • tri-Ace Shinsaku RPG – tri-Ace new product RPG
  • Porojekuto Shidō made, ato – (Project Starting* until, after) – Admittedly, this is the literal translation and the end probably means something a little less abstract.

And then a countdown.

*It’s important to note that shidō in Japanese refers to a machine starting. Another way of describing it would be the English term “turning over”, as in – an engine starting or activating. This obviously suggests giant robots – a first for Japanese RPGs! Yes, we’re joking …
