Today Atlus USA announced a western release date for Vanillaware’s latest and gorgeous game 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim.
Considering the years of silence by the western arm of Atlus following the release of the teaser trailer at E3 2017, I’m sure I’m not the only one who lost hope of ever getting to write this article.
Yet, the beautiful adventure game will come to the west for PS4 on September 8, 2020.
At launch, it will include only Japanese voice-overs alongside English, French, Italian, Spanish, and German subtitles.
Yet, an English voice track is also coming. While its recording has been hindered by the COVID-19 pandemic, it will be distributed after release via a free patch.
The game will cost $59.99 and pre-orders of a physical edition will grant you an art book, which is awesome considering that the art is one of 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim’s strongest perks.
Below you can enjoy the announcement trailer and a batch of screenshots.
