Frutibat Factory, the company that brought us 99 Spirits, 100% Orange Juice and War of the Human Tanks, just announced that it will be localizing Eiyuu*Senki for the PlayStation 3, their first console release.
Developed by TENCO, Eiyuu*Senki was originally released in 2012 for the PC as an adult game and in 2013 as an all ages PS3 title. This month Japan will receive a Vita version.
Ozhan Sen, the graphics and marketing lead of Fruitbat Factory says:
After a successful launch of operations on the PC market, we were looking for an opportunity to expand to console gaming. With Eiyuu Senki we found the chance to do it with a bang. It is a funny mix of a strategy game, RPG and visual novel that will forever change how you remember historical figures.
The character artist is the famous Oyari Ashito who drew over 70 characters for this title.
Jakke Elonen, the project lead adds:
As long-time fans of tactical RPGs we’re very excited to get to work on this title, which we’ve seen many fans wishing to be localized. We are aiming to release Eiyuu Senki simultaneously in North America and Europe, and will give more updates as they happen.
For those of you that want to try out the game you can download the official trial version.
