Excerpt: Similar to last year's Cross Edge , Trinity Universe is a crossover JRPG combining characters from Gust's Atelier series and Nippon Ichi Software's Disgaea series. I'm hesitant to call Trinity Universe a "do-over," but in some ways that's exactly what it is. I'm really beginning to dig NIS's "visual novel" presentation. Once-static character portraits are now animated between poses. Though far from full-scale animation, it looks great and adds new life to cut scenes.
Conclusion: Dodgy camera and mildly repetitive dungeon scenery aside, Trinity Universe has a lot going for it. The subtleties of the Fury battle system and the humorous storylines will keep you entertained for hours on end. Trinity Universe is a JRPG through and through, but it moves away from the traditional mould to distinguish itself as an interesting and entertaining play for gamers who are looking for a bit of a change.
Excerpt: Sometimes, all that you need to take a mediocre game and transform it into a colorful, lively romp through time and space is a cast of memorable characters. Take Disgaea , for instance. On its own merits, that title wasn't the perfect dungeon crawler, but once zany personalities such as Laharl and Etna were tossed into the mix, it became an entirely different monster.
Summary: Cross-over games were once few and far between with characters rarely making a cameo in a different game series. This is starting to change however when publisher NIS America gets together with groups like Gust and Idea Factory. While their last effort, Cross Edge didn’t do too much to sway audiences toward this type of cross-over game.
Conclusion: While there really is only one storyline, told from the two distinct perspectives via Demon Dog King Kanata and Valkyrie Rizelea, Trinity Universe treats’ you to two immersive adventures that can reach lengths of 30-40 hours depending on style of play. Comparing Trinity Universe to Cross Edge, you can clearly see that Idea Factory, Gust and NIS America has come a long way with reinventing their crossover RPGs for the PlayStation 3 console.
Summary: Trinity Universe is a crossover RPG between characters from Nippon Ichi Software and Gust. Offering different story arcs, Trinity Universe will feature two scenarios, Megami and Mao, depending on which publisher or character you prefer.
Conclusion: Dozens of dungeons overflowing with enemies and treasures for you to battle and collect to your hearts content, but it will require some patience and tolerance on your part to fully enjoy. For JRPG and turn based fans, this is certainly worth your attention.
Conclusion: Mit „Trinity Universe“ hat NIS America ein zwar kitschiges, aber wieder typisch japanisches Rollenspiel geschaffen, das in vielerlei Hinsicht sogar attraktiver als Final Fantasy XIII sein kann. Die Grafik ist zweckmäßig und harmoniert sowohl mit dem Gameplay, als auch mit der musikalischen Untermalung. Das Kampfsystem ist ausgeklügelt und lädt zum experimentieren ein.
