E3 is upon us, which means that news from the biggest players in the room - the Microsofts, Sonys and Nintendos and EAs of the world - will drown out pretty much all other attempts to get information out to the gaming public. Which would explain why Atlus would go out and announce their next 3DS game right now. They're bringing Code of Princess to English-speaking shores this fall!
In case you were wondering what that game is, it's an action brawler from Agatsuma Entertainment, and boasts a number of former Treasure (Ikaruga, Sin and Punishment) employees in its development roster. Which makes sense, since the gameplay strongly resembles Treasure's own classic Guardian Heroes.
But enough about that, who's that naked lady in the header?! She's Solange, the eponymous princess, game protagonist, and anti-armor activist. She'll be joined by more conservatively dressed characters on her journey to beat tons of enemies up, all of whom are designed by Kinu Nishimura, who is better known for her character design work in various Capcom fighting games.
Visit Atlus' temporary site for tiny screenshots and a look at the western box art (Japanese box art is in the gallery), or check out the game's anime intro below.
