Last year, Battle Princess of Arcadias was released in Japan exclusively on PlayStation 3. Not too long after that release, NIS America announced that they had plans to bring the game stateside, but at the time, a release date hadn’t been nailed down. Fast-forward some months, and here we are today; according to a press release just put out by NIS, Battle Princess of Arcadias will hit the PlayStation Network on June 17 (and June 18 for Europe).
If you missed the original news regarding the localization of Battle Princess, then check out NIS America’s official synopsis of what to expect from the game:
The kingdom of Schwert was once peaceful and beautiful. But now it’s been overrun by monsters, and as the Battle Princess Plume, it’s up to you to set things right in this colorful, high-speed action RPG! Recruit a group of warriors and engage in skirmishes against the enemy before taking on huge and powerful bosses in epic siege battles!
You’ll also get to delight in an extensive upgrade system. As you stomp the enemy into the ground throughout each level, you’ll collect weapons and materials that you can use to enhance your gear. You’ll be able to unlock new skills based on your weapon and its level, and with enough time and effort, you can even transform your gear into new, more powerful weapons! Fight your way through each area, gaining new characters and abilities, gathering heaps of treasure, and upgrading your weapons and gear, all on your way to victory!
