Today Binary Haze Interactive and Adglobe released a new trailer of the upcoming tactics JRPG Redemption Reapers.
This time around the trailer shows the story and gameplay rather evenly. We get to meet some of the characters that we'll encounter and play including the beautiful warrior Sarah, the stern swordsman Glenn, who serves as the leader of the Ashen Hawk Brigade of mercenaries, and the young Naki, who is taken under the protection of the brigade after losing his hometown and family to the invasion of the Mort.
Even the gameplay part showcases the connection with the story, with the narration also featured in the banter among characters during battles. On top of that, we hear the lovely theme song.
You can check out the trailer below. If you'd rather enjoy the Japanese voices, you can also listen to them in the Japanese version of the video. You can also check out the original announcement with the first trailer and another video focusing on the gameplay.
Redemption Reapers is developed by the same studio behind the dark fantasy action JRPG Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights and the legacy of that game is certainly visible. The game is also directed by Masayuki Horikawa, whom you may know for his work on the Fire Emblem series including Thracia 776, The Binding Blade, The Blazing Blade, Path of Radiance, Shadow Dragon, Awakening, and Fates.
The music was composed by Rei Kondoh, who worked on the Bayonetta series and the Fire Emblem series, while the scenario is written by Tomokazu Fukushima, known for his work on the Metal Gear Solid series. If this isn't promising, I don't know what could be.
