Today Atlus announced their newest U.S. release, Eternal Poison. Titled Poison Pink in Japan, Eternal Poison is a gothic strategy RPG developed by Flight Plan (Summon Night, Black/Matrix). I didn’t get a ton out of the trailer…lots of gothic stuff going on, a white wolf, and a nuclear explosion at the end. I couldn’t find out much on Wikipedia, either, except a brief synopsis of the plot:
Poison Pink tells the story of the protagonists Tage, Olifen, and Hersh, who travel to the demon’s lair somewhere between the real world and hell to rescue a princess that has been abducted by the Besek.
Also, there is an interview with Masami Watanabe, the president of Flight Plan, through RPG Fan.
Atlus is proud to announce Eternal Poison for North America, scheduled for release on November 11, 2008.
Originally released in Japan as Poison Pink, this gothic strategy RPG delivers a riveting narrative with sweeping themes and memorable characters, complimented by classic tactical gameplay and a uniquely dark aesthetic. Prepare to discover the true meanings of romance, heroism, madness, despair, and betrayal…
