Today Atlus has released another trailer of Vanillaware’s gorgeous adventure/strategy game 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim.
This time around, the trailer focuses on the English voice-overs that will come alongside the western release, and fans of Japanese culture will find a nice surprise by watching it.
Sega has preserved the Japanese honorifics like “chan” and “kun,” providing a lovely way to keep in touch with the game’s setting and to effectively convey the relationships within characters. This is usually lost in western localization, and it’s great to see it preserved here.
You can check it out below.
13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim comes on September 22 exclusively for PS4.
