NIS reveals Last Rebellion for PS3

Watercolour RPG with "dark anti-hero".

NIS America has revealed a watercolour-style PS3 RPG called Last Rebellion, which will be released over there this autumn.

The game follows "dark anti-hero" Nine and his female companion Aisha on a story of revenge. Exploration will be free-form but battles turn-based, where Nine will resort to physical attacks and Aisha to magic. But only one character can fight per turn, creating what NIS hopes to be "not another mindless battle system". Body-parts can also be targeted; legs to slow, arms to weaken, and so on.

Visually, the game looks quite like the latest Prince of Persia, only less vibrant, as our Last Rebellion gallery will illustrate. The game is single-player, too.
