Day Persona 5 officially gets released in West! A book has also appeared on Amazon US called “The Art of Persona 5” by Prima Games which might be a localised version of this book so you might want to hold out until June 27th. However, it’s thinner at only 432 pages so we’ll have to wait and see…
Persona 5 Official Design Works is one big heavy artbook… Probably the biggest I’ve seen at A4, 512 pages. It reminds me of the the free telephone directories that are distributed to homes in the UK but, the paper and print quality’s much better of course. Shows how much thought went into the game and why it’s oozing with quality, enough to play through a second time to platinum it.
Been a while since I last built a Ghibli Minituart papercraft. This time, I’ll be tackling a one star Laputa one model number 19 so it should be quicker. Then again, the first Totoro one was a one star but it still took many hours to put together so wasn’t expecting this to be any easier although it did look simpler.
There are quite a few other harder Laputa models such as the actual castle in the sky but it only looked good in the cover photo. The actual model wasn’t very good when I saw the models in Loft.
Been 6 years since the last VC game, Valkyria Chronicles 3 was released on PSP. Now we finally have a new title but despite the Selvaria look-alike in the promotion illustration, it’s only set in the same universe and as the title “Valkyria Revolution” suggests, with the gameplay going through some “revolution”.
Characters from different Summon Night games find themselves landing on a mystery island where things falling from the sky is a everyday thing. As island dwelling Raj and Amu welcome the new characters, they try to workout what’s going on.
I had never heard of Root Letter before so I had no idea what it was about. At first glance, you’d think it’s another dating sim where you just try to pick the best choices to win a girl’s heart. However, I went onto read the story which was about Takayuki Max who wrote to a girl named Aya as a penfriend. One day one of her letters wrote, “I killed someone. I must atone for my sins. This is farewell.”
You play as Takayuki 15 years later since Aya stopped corresponding and he decided to track her down by going to her home town. However, all her classmates deny knowing her and the strange thing is, they say she had died long before she became Takyuki’s penpal… Could she have been a ghost? Takayuki intends to find out.
