Hey PlayStation.Blog readers! Ari, Comms Manager for Sega for all things Atlus, here. Vanillware, the creative minds behind Odin Sphere and Dragon’s Crown, are back with an award-winning sci-fi story, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, coming to PlayStation 4 on September 8.
Pre-order the game from your local, physical retailer to secure a bonus artbook:
At release, only Japanese VO will be available, due to the impact of COVID-19 on our production schedules. However, a free English VO patch will be available after launch. We’ll share updates and an exact timing as we near release.
Not only is the artwork beautiful in Vanillware’s signature painterly style, the intertwining 13 stories narrative will keep you captivated. Essentially, it’s a deep sci-fi epic (my favorite genre) and it’s already winning multiple awards in Japan, including being nominated for Sci-fi awards normally reserved for movies or books.
Here’s a list of 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim’s official accolades:
- Japan Game Awards 2019, Future Division Winner
- Famitsu Dengeki Game Award 2019, Best Scenario Award & Best Adventure Award (2 divisions)
