Other than the absolutely amazing Renegade remake, the 3DS has certainly been lacking in the beat-em-up genre. From the new up and comer Agatsuma Entertainment who feature the predigree of former Capcom artist Kinu Nishimura, and such Treasure alumni as Masaki Ukyo. Tetsukiko Kikuchi who worked on such games as Guardian Heroes, Sin and Punishment, and Mischief Makers (my personal favorite Treasure game), Code of Princess looks to deliver on all levels.
The game features classic 2D sprites in a world that would have been more than welcome on the Saturn or Playstation. The game will feature a deep combo system as well as an addicting leveling system and tons of playable characters.
Most importantly the game has been announced for America! Expect to see this potential gem this fall on the 3DS!
For now, check out the beautiful art in the trailer below.
