13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim

Odin Sphere Developer’s 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim Coming to the West

Odin Sphere and Dragon’s Crown developer Vanillaware is bringing its sci-fi mecha game, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, to the West. The George Kamitani directed title will be localized and released by Atlus USA. In a press release, the publisher wrote: A departure from the studio’s traditional fantasy style, the game takes place in a modern setting punctuated with giant mechs. Although the world may be bleak, Vanillaware’s signature artistic shine and gorgeous aesthetics will bring the characters and story of 13 Sentinels to life. Although 13 Sentinels is releasing for the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in Japan, platforms for the West haven’t been confirmed yet. We expect to hear more at E3 2017 as the event’s exhibitor page outed the game’s Western appearance back in April. 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim was first announced during 2015’s Tokyo Game Show. We’ll update our readers when we have more info on the Western release. In the meantime, you can check out a teaser page here.

Some Korean Fans Were Upset About This Imagery in Persona 5

Persona 5’s stylish opening animation is absolutely gorgeous, with its red and black motif, perfectly choreographed character movements, and other bits that make it one of the most memorable introductions to a game you’ve probably ever seen. Its jazzy theme song, attractive text, and other awesome elements make it modern and retro at the same time, and you really can’t say enough good things about it. So naturally, that means it’s controversial, at least for Korean gamers who noticed something particular about protagonist Ryuji’s shoes. It appears that there’s a small red dot on Ryuji’s white sneakers that appears to resemble the Japanese flag, the one generally associated with the Imperial Army of the World War II era, and this caused a bit of an uproar. Korean internet denizens noticed the shoes and were understandably upset with the sneakers, given the relationship between Japan and Korea. It’s not atypical to see both countries sharing pop culture like music, movies, and video games, but Korean gamers weren’t so pleased to find this Japanese flag in the game. Sony Interactive Entertainment Korea took down the original video that depicted Ryuji’s sneakers with what looked like the Japanese flag READ FULL STORY AT…

Persona 5 Gets A Small Change To Avoid Further Controversy In South Korea

[Image: Atlus] When PlayStation Korea uploaded the Persona 5 title sequence for the game’s upcoming release in the country, fans noticed something: Ryuji Sakamoto’s shoes. As Record China reports, fans were upset that his shoes depicted a Rising Sun Flag motif. Obviously, due to historical associations Korean people have with that flag, there will certainly be greater sensitivity to that sort of imagery. Here’s a close up of Ryuji’s shoes in-game. [Photo: Kotaku] This wasn’t the first time his sneakers caused controversy in South Korea. Last year, when the game was originally released in Japan, the shoes were the subject of Korean internet articles and heated online discussions. (You can read more about why this character might have this imagery on his sneakers right here.) Advertisement Yet, the opening uploaded to PlayStation Korea’s official YouTube channel seemed to show that this element of the game wasn’t localized for Korean gamers—which was actually somewhat surprising. PlayStation Korea, however, has since re-upped the title sequence, and Ryuji’s sneakers no longer have the Rising Sun mark. Instead, they are completely white, as you can see below. PlayStation Korea told IT Media that it had accidentally uploaded the title sequence that wasn’t the Korean…
