The lands in which JRPGs dwell in are vast and mystifying.
Somewhere within these murky grounds lies a small-time Japanese dungeon RPG developer that calls themselves Experience (really an apt name since they’ve been making nothing but dungeons RPG). If you don’t know who they are, maybe their best-known work – a 2011 Xbox 360 JRPG entitled Students of Round – might ring some bells.
Well, that’s okay, because if you’re intrigued by the Knights of the Round-sounding title you will be able to play it on the PSP instead later this year in October, when an upgraded version – Students of Round: The Eternal Legend – is released.
The PSP version will receive a few interface tweaks, a 16:9 resolution to fit the PSP’s screen and – apparently for the first time (this was not in the X360 version) – will star three AAA-tier voice actresses:
- Miyuki Sawashiro as Elsa
- Ryou Hirohashi as Marlin
- Eri Kitamura as Loumi
Students of Round: The Eternal Legend (PSP) is slated for an October 2012 release, to be sold for 6,090 yen (retail UMD) or 5,040 yen (digitally through the PlayStation Store).
Apart from Students of Round, Experience co. also announced a new Xbox 360 RPG, “Ken no Machi no Ihoujin” (剣の街の異邦人) which roughly translates to Stranger in the Town of Blades, and a yet-to-be-shown PS Vita dungeon RPG.
Not much has been shown for Stranger in the Town of Blades too. All we have to go on is this key visual image, which shows a schoolgirl carrying a haversack on her right arm, and a longsword on her left.
