    Vanillaware, known for beloved games such as Odin Sphere, Muramasa Rebirth, Dragon's Crown, and more, will be having their latest title, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, brought west, thanks to Atlus/SEGA. The press release refrains from noting what consoles this game will release on, though the original Japanese version is slated for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. The game will also be on showcase at Atlus' E3 2017 booth.

    I love Vanillawares games SOOOOO much, and was very pleased to be notified of this in my Atlus newsletter email - especially considering that there'd been no news of this title for many months and I was begining to wonder if it was cancelled.

    Sure hope this will get a Switch release too. I doubt it, but I'm hoping. It looks gorgeous!

    It's doubtful, but given Vanillaware released Muramasa for Wii a Switch version (in the distant future) is more likely than the Xbone ever getting it.

    After Odin Sphere Leifthrasir, I fell deeply in love with this studio. Do we know which platforms this will be releasing on yet?

    PS4 and Vita ...but I'm still hoping for a PS3 version, afterall Atlus released Persona 5 on both PS3 and PS4, and Odin Sphere Leifthrasir came out on PS3, PS4 and Vita.

    I doubt it. The PS3 is soundly dead at this point.

    Not true. It's still getting physical releases in Japan. And, like I said, Persona 5 got a physical PS3 release just a matter of weeks ago, in all territories (I own the EUR disk).
    The PS3 isn't like the xbox 360 where everyone dropped all development as soon as the xbone came out. Also, remember how long the PS2's lifecycle was with games being released LONG into the life of it's successor.
    ...but, I'm living in hope. I'm realistic enough to doubt it will get a PS3 release, but I'd say it's more likely than a Switch or Xbone version.

    I also just remembered that someone needs to complete the translation of Vanillawares Japan only NDS game Kumatanchi ...I've been wanting to play that game in English for almost a decade now!

    Is it sad I only heard of those 3? What else do they have I wasn't aware of? O_O

    Grim Grimoire on PS2 is probably the best known other than those three.
