3D RPG Kitaru Presents Voice Cast & Active Time Battle System (FIRST LOOK!)



Aoineko Studios has formally announced the voice cast of Yuri Lowenthal, voice of TV's Ben10, the prince in The Prince of Persia, and Soulcalibur V. Yuri Lowenthal will be joined by Tara Platt, highly-regarded for her work on Final Fantasy XIII, Naruto, Bleach, and Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

In addition to progress in cast, rapid advancement has also been made with the game. The main focus right now for the development team is building and configuring the pre-alpha custom battle systems. These new active time battle systems will allow players to shuffle their moves in an action queue, thus keeping the pressure on opponents at all times, while also requiring strategy to manage time and resources. The team is also designing new game levels and terrains, where the key characters will explore a wide range of urban, natural and industrial landscapes, such as decaying cities, deserted wastelands, and heavily guarded industrial complexes.

Here is a first look…

Woah, that's a huge improvement in graphics and animations!

But I still doubt that many people are interested in turn-based RPGs.

Turn-based RPGs are a perfect fit for mobile platforms. I don't doubt that a smart, polished game would find an audience.

I wasn't very impressed with the first set of media released. This is a huge improvement.

Nice work, I dig these kinds of RPGs, very reminiscent of the Final Fantasy games

Good to see an indie dev putting Unity through its paces, though correct me if I'm wrong, I dont believe the battle video preview you posted was recorded on an actual iOS device?

Looking forward to the release

Dunno why you'd say that, as a lot of the most successful franchises are entirely turn-based.

This, for one, shows a lot of promise. Looking forward to how this one turns out.

Yes, but I was talking in comparison to real time combat RPGs.
