A side-scrolling RPG mash-up for the PS3, Cross Edge
has characters hailing from every corner of the Japanese role-playing game universe (or at least from the NIS publishing house): Disgaea
, Ar Tonelico
, Atlier Marie
, Spectral Souls
, and Darkstalkers
just for starters. More importantly, NIS is correcting yesterday's statement that the game will launch on March 24th. We didn't post that press release, but that date was incorrect. Cross Edge
won't be in stores until May. Not May 24th
, exactly. Just May.
