Guardian Heroes Dev Team working on New 3DS Game
According to a post on Eurogamer today, a new game called Code of Princess is being developed for the 3DS in Japan. Creating the game is Tetsuhiko Kikuchi, the brains behind cult Treasure games Guardian Heroes and Sin & Punishment, who was hired by studio Agatsuma Games. The post says that the game is scheduled for release in Japan in early 2012, but it speculates that Agatsuma is looking for a publisher to release the game outside of Japan.
The post notes that the game is going to be an action RPG, and will feature real-time combat and cooperative play—and that’s it.
Also…codes. And princesses.
Now, I could easily make a joke here about what I think the code is (Unicorn Unicorn Alpha Tango Pink Tiara), but I’m not going to. It’s too cheap and easy (plus I already did it).
Instead, I’m going to point out the fact that this could very well be some kind of bad ass awesomesauce thing. I mean, after all, A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs is this really great novel about a dude who files up to Mars and kicks all kinds of ass on gigantic green aliens and white apes. And Disney’s making a film about it called John Carter—because they figured that no boy would go to a movie with the word “Princess” in the title. And that no girl would see it because it had “Mars” in the title. So they’re calling it John Carter.
Anyway, it’s a game, it’s got the word “Princess” in it, and it’s coming out next year in Japan. Blump.
Here’s some screenshots.
