While unfortunately due to licensing restrictions they will not be able to release the game in several regions, North American anime and video game publisher Nippon Ichi Software America have confirmed that they have finally released their much anticipated English localization of Black Rock Shooter: The Game on the Playstation Portable.
About the Game
2032 AD—Earth has been ruthlessly assaulted by extraterrestrials, and nineteen years of nonstop battle now threatens the very existence of humanity. The last hope for human survival is BRS, a heroine created solely to save planet Earth; she is the ultimate battle android. But when she is awakened to end the conflict once and for all, there are only twelve human beings left on Earth left for her to protect…
- The World: Explore ghostly city ruins, bizarre alien structures, and more as you travel through illustrator Huke’s vision of a devastated future Earth!
- The Enemy: Engage in lightning-fast battles where your choices and reflexes are the only thing standing between you and total annihilation!
- The Girl: Level up BRS to equip her with a bevy of attacks and skills to make full use of her superhuman abilities and gigantic cyber-cannon!
- The Last Hope: Complete a variety of missions for the last remaining humans to unlock new guns, costumes, challenges, and more!
As of yet, the anime installment in the Black Rock Shooter series has not yet been published in North America, however Australian anime publisher Siren Visual have it available in their covered regions…. somewhat making up for the fact that it seems like Australia and New Zealand don’t seem to be on the list of countries that will receive this game.
