 PSP The Last Promised Story - Preorder

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Prior to developing and soon publishing The Last Promised Story, imageepoch's job was solely a developer of games such as Luminous Arc, 7th Dragon and Last Ranker. They're taking control of their game publishing however instead of assigning the task to another company and the ie's debut title is a Japanese RPG.

   Once upon a time, magic permeated the kingdom of Yggdra and made it into a utopia but the rise of the machines in the kingdom of
Savi Chantier has threatened Yggdra's very existence. The machines have mounted an aggressive campaign to wipe the mages and magic of Yggdra off the map. War is serious business but enter a lad named "Wolf" who is leader of the Messiah Knights who're on a mission to battle the machines and bring Yggdra back from the brink. That mission is their last promise to the people of Yggdra. Why are they called the "Messiah Knights?" Because the ruler of Yggdra is named "Messiah."

   The battle system in Last Promised is turn-based with strategic elements thrown into the mix to make things more interesting than rote and mindless button pushing.

   Early preorders will ship with a bonus "The Story of the Last Promise" Art Graphics and Black Rock The Game Preview that's being given away by the publisher in 50% ratio.

There's been a recent surge in preorders for the game but we're not sure why. It's been known that the game's region-free for a while so that can't be the explanation. In related news, 5pb may make Bullet Soul Tama Tamashii a region-free release but this hasn't been confirmed yet.
