NIS America is sharing new details about Culdcept Revolt today starting with the game’s characters. The image above introduces Allen and also shows off the Free Bats as well as the Court’s Army.
NIS America also passed along the following information:
The main story takes place in “Quest Mode”, where you play as Allen, a man who wakes up in the city of Celphas with no memory of how he got there. He is discovered and rescued by the rebel group, the Free Bats, as he begins to recall his past and his powers as a Cepter. As you collect cards and search for Allen’s lost memories, the mystery of the city of Celphas slowly begins to reveal itself.
In addition to experiencing the story of Allen and the Free Bats, you will also be able to play optional challenge stages in Quest Mode for over 150 single player stages.
Culdcept Revolt heads to North America on August 29 and Europe on September 1.

Posted on 3 days ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in 3DS, News | 0 comments | 0 Likes
Atlus issued another update about Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology today. Along with a bunch of screenshots, details were sent out primarily covering different areas, characters, and the battle system. Everything’s been rounded up below, courtesy of Gematsu.
– Simple society formed by the Satyros in the forests cast of Alistel
– Led by their Patriarch Barranca
– The Satyros have power over Mana and are protected by a holy tree suffused with it
– The Satyros that love to dance are mainly jovial and filled with curiosity
– Over the centuries, the Satyros have continued to isolate themselves from humans
– In contract to the Gutrals, who have completely severed ties with humanity, the Satyros still enter human settlements from time to time and participate in cultural exchanges
– Formally, though, Celestia has broken off diplomatic relations with humans
– Celestia is protected by a magic barrier, so humans can’t enter
Vanoss (voiced by Tomohiro Tsuboi)
– Leads a troupe of travelling performers which includes Aht and Liese
– Always a gentleman and acts as Aht’s “Uncle Vanos”
– Happy with his life as a wandering performer, but he is personally acquainted with the Patriarch of the Satyros, and seems to have his own agenda
