The other two titles were Project: Arcadia. Little info was given about the game, save for the following catchphrases: "A princess!", "Side scrolling!", and "An exhilarating feeling!"

The "A" in "Arcadia" was highlighted in red.

Battle Princess of Arcadias is a side-scrolling action RPG where you play as a princess armed with a sword that fights through an army.

Unfortunately (unless Asagi's now a sword-wielding princess) this will not be the Asagi game we dreamed of :(

Still interested to see more of this!

oh hi do you know if a topic for this was made yet?

http://www.siliconera.com/2013/05/28/su ... s-to-date/

This topic sounded similiar so not sure if it's a alternate title, but guess it's a different company.

I think we will actually get a preview of one of the characters in Disgaea D2's DLC.

Another action RPG? That's a bit surprising, although I do look forward to it. It does look like Asagi isn't going to be the main character though, although I guess there is still a chance.

Maybe they were having so much fun with Witch/Knights that they decided to make another one... that's a good sign. ^^

Well, yeah that makes sense, but I figure if they had so much trouble with Witch and the Hundred Knights it would have made the chances of them doing another side scrolling action RPG very slim. That doesn't seem to be the case though so I can only assume that they managed to get enough experience with Witch and the Hundred Knights to make things go a bit smoother.

I don't know if trouble is the word I'd use to describe that process. More like... they really wanted to get it right and were taking the time to do so, including getting help from other companies? And now that they know what they want to do, it's easier?

Of course, if it's just side-scrolling, we already have the Prinny games, so... yeah.

A sidescrolling ARPG is completely different from a 3D (technically 2.5D) ARPG...so yeah, they're just making 2 different styles

Keep in mind, 'sidescrolling' has not been confirmed.

..And, most likely, would be on a handheld instead of a console...

Well even then, a 2D ARPG is completely different. Witch and the Hundred Knights seems to be going for more of a Western/Eastern hybrid kinda deal.

@Red - I'd actually like it being on the Vita...2D stuff looks so crisp on it :lol:

I would be sad if this game were to be a portable exclusive.
