Here are some gorgeous new Time and Eternity screens

Imageepoch's PS3-bound JRPG opus Time and Eternity (aka Tokitowa), is looking rather beautiful and quite a bit unique. Where other games emulate 2D "anime-style" graphics using techniques like cell-shading and special filters, Time and Eternity is walking a slightly more fundamentalist pa route, with super-high-resolution 2D sprites (done by Studio Satelight of Macross Frontier fame) on gussied-up 3D environments.

And since Imageepoch are aiming to make this thing the first 'HD Anime JRPG', they're not pulling a Disgaea and locking the camera to an easy-to-manage perspective. Redheaded protagonist Toki moves at all manner of expensive-looking angles fighting various other 2D monsters. Pretty!

I feel obligated to reiterate my concern for the game, though. The most critical part of this venture is the "animation" part of "anime" here, and still shots by nature can't show off those bits. We need to see some motion, Imageepoch!
