Famitsu scans for Time Travelers, that mystery Level-5 game coming to 3DS… and now PSP and PS Vita! Those of you who planned to pick this up, are you considering getting this for the Vita instead of the 3DS?
Andriasang has details on all the characters shown here (Ressentiment seems like a particularly fun/interesting guy), as well as more on the game’s story:
“Time Travelers kicks off a few years in the future as a mysterious hole called the “Lost Hole” appears in the skies above Tokyo accompanied by an explosion. Central Tokyo is destroyed, and many lives are lost.
Things jump 18 years, to 4/28/2031. Tokyo is a futuristic city, with holographic signs filling the streets, and a building called the ‘Space Elevator’ rising from Tokyo Bay. While there’s a “space” in the name, the building is only 2,000 meters high. It serves as a power source for the city.”
4/28, eh? That’s a cute nod from the game’s writer Jiro Ishii to another title he worked on called 428, which you might remember as that Wii visual novel that got a perfect 40/40 Famitsu review score but never released here.
