Revealed last night during the official Twitch E3 stream, Studio Saizensen’s Blade Strangers is a 2D fighter that combines the speed of Guilty Gear with the easy inputs of Smash Bros. More importantly, it let’s Curly from Cave Story fight Solange from Code of Princess.
Japanese game company Agatsuma Entertainment announced that it’s closing down. The company, known for publishing titles like 3DS game Code of Princess and the Sayonara UmiharaKawase series, was dissolved today, and according to Famitsu, it will be fully liquidated by March 31, 2016.
We've not written much about Atlus' Code of Princess, and that's partly my fault. I saw the online-enabled co-op and competitive action role-playing game at E3 earlier this year, and forgot. I know, let's blame Persona!
Code of Princess isn't exactly a memorable title. The game's official illustration, with a half-naked princess gripping a huge sword, sure is. But you can't play game art.
Mass-market appeal, family-friendly mascots and fluffy animals be damned. Code of Princess is a 3DS game that wants to sell itself on giant swords and barely-clothed women.
