This Brand New Old-School RPG Is Coming To PS3 And Vita Next Year

Here's one more reason to get your hands on a Vita: Dragon Fantasy Book II, the sequel to NES-style iOS JRPG Dragon Fantasy, is coming to Sony's portable system (and PlayStation 3) next year.

Hit the PlayStation Blog for more details on this old-school-styled RPG, courtesy creator Adam Rippon. Or you could watch the video footage I shot when I checked out the game at PAX East earlier this year (although Rippon says a lot has changed since then).


Rippon is also showing off the game at PAX Prime this week, so stay tuned for more impressions within the next few days.

Here's an idea for all the indie devs out there looking to make a game in the 16 bit art style: make your game with that art, but with today's technology. There's no reason to have crappy animations, poor dialogue, or sound effects. Look at Fez for a great example. Excellent pixilated artwork, but with modern day sensibilities in animations and controls. Seriously, there's a reason we moved on from 16 bit. It's a great art style, but it had severe limitations.
