Santa Ana, Calif. (June 20, 2012) NIS America announced today that its new multiplayer action game, Clan of Champions, will be released later this summer for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system via PlayStation Network. Clan of Champions is developed by ACQUIRE Corp., best known for the Tenchu series. Clan of Champions will also be available on Steam later this year. It will not be released on the Xbox 360 platform as initially announced.

About Clan of Champions

Clan of Champions is a hardcore multiplayer action game set in a medieval fantasy world of magic and mystery. You will choose from 3 different races - human, elf, or orc - and take on a variety of combatbased missions, each of which is different in content and length. You can play by yourself or with 2 others in the online co-op mode. There is also a 3-vs-3 team battle mode where you can fight your friends or rival teams.

Key Features

Fast-paced Combat – Jump into the fray with a variety of fighting styles and magical spell sets. Find your favorite combination of skills to take on the enemy!
Multiplayer – Recruit your friends online with the 3-person co-op mode or 3-vs-3 battle mode.
Customization – Customize your character’s appearance and stat distribution. There are many different weapons and plenty of equipment to aid in creating a unique warrior in your battle for survival!
Dynamic Warfare – Strip your enemy of their gear mid-battle and seize it for your own use! Switch weapons and fighting styles on the fly!
Weapon Mastery – Pick whichever weapon type you’d like to specialize in. The longer you use each type of weapon, the more skills and moves you’ll unlock!

Guess they couldn't find the other 360 games to bring over?

My guess is that they thought it wasn't worthy of a retail release, and Microsoft wouldn't allow them to release the full game on XBLA.

Well now i'm more worried about the 3 games's they're suppose to bring over.Hope it doesn't mess with future localizations.
Of course it could just be a later date for XBOX360, i doubt NISA would hype it up as their fist XBOX game then just silently discard it.

Haha, I came here to post this myself, guess I came too late...anyways, I had a feeling that this wasn't gonna end up being a physical release, the 360 thing is a surprise though...so seems I'll be passing on this now :/

Nah, because of digital only, I don't have much room on my HD right now, and don't have the funds to buy a new one...so since I'm gonna be buying Legasista, and One Pice, I think I won't have enough room for this :lol:

It still looks enjoyable, so if I see some nice gameplay videos after release, I'll think about it...I think I can find a cheap external hard drive or something, if those work on ps3s

While I wasn't very interested in this game, I have to say I'm disappointed that the 360 release was canceled. I would have loved to see NISA go on to localize some 360 titles, like Root Double and Instant Brain. :P I hope this doesn't mean that they're completely done with 360 for good...

I hope so.
Not too many Niche JRPG's for the Xbox360.Added on to the fact that the JRPG fanbase that's on the 360 has to be at least half as small as the PS3's, besides, this way they also got out of that "3 games for us" contract MS has. I also honestly have to say (and i'm not hating here), i hope this is the last NISA deals with these types of games.
