ATLUS USA have announced that their release of Code of Princess, the action RPG brawler exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS is now available in stores across North America. The game, developed by Japanese studio Agatsuma Entertainment is set to merge frantic fighting with elements of classic arcade side-scrolling beat-em-ups and the character development and growth of an RPG.
Code of Princess is unlike anything else available for Nintendo 3DS. Fans of action will savor the game’s combat, which is loaded with satisfying multipliers and the strategic demands of hordes of enemies on a three-railed battlefield with true depth. Fans of RPGs will relish the ability to level and improve their characters, converting their gained experience into boosts for the stats that best suit their play style and tactics.
A sweeping single-player campaign loaded with new characters to discover and beautiful anime cutscenes to unlock is only the beginning. The game also boasts extensive multiplayer functionality: up to four players can take on challenges cooperatively or battle against one another in competitive play, both of which are available locally or online via Nintendo Network. If all of that were not already sufficient, the North American release of Code of Princess benefits from a number of technical enhancements not initially included in the original Japanese release, one of the most significant of which being an improved frame rate, particularly when the screen is filled with action.[Source: Official Blurb]
