When you think of Evangelion, what comes to mind? Giant robots? Angsty teens? Massive amounts of religious imagery? A complete mind-fuck ending?


But what about the soundtrack, does that leap to the forefront of your mind? Well apparently it did for Grasshopper Manufacture—the creators of No More Heroes, Shadows of the Damned and Lollipop Chainsaw—when they created Evangelion: 3nd Impact.

3nd Impact (pronounced "sound impact" for those who were wondering) is a collection of music mini-games set to music from the Rebuild of Evangelion films that shows clips from those two movies in the background as you play. These mini-games vary from traditional "press the button when the shapes line up" gameplay to "repeat the pattern" rhythm games. There are even a few odd stages where you must combine movie dialogue with a soundtrack of ambient noise.

Evangelion 3nd Impact was released on September 29, 2011, for the PlayStation Portable in Japan. There are no plans for an international release. Stay tuned to Kotaku East for the full import preview later today.
