Publisher XSEED Games has announced that they will be bringing over the dungeon-crawling RPG Unchained Blades to North American shores later this year on the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita.
Unchained Blades follows the story of the dragon emperor, Fang, who after being stripped of his powers by the goddess Clunea, embarks on a journey for revenge and to regain his true form. Arrogant and vengeful, Fang is joined in his quest by a cowardly golem prince, a shy medusa priestess, a young phoenix clan maiden, and many other mythical beings seeking to meet with the goddess.
Due to the collaborative nature of the game's design, each of the 13 main characters was created by a different artist. The main character Fang was designed by Pako, most famous for his work on the Shining Force series, while other characters were fashioned by artists such as Toshiyuki Kubooka (Lunar), Shinichiro Otsuka (Summon Night), and Kazushi Hagiwara (Bastard!!), to name a few.
Unchained Blades will be a digitally released exclusive on both the PlayStation Vita via PSN and the Nintendo 3DS via Nintendo eShop later this year.
