Hey, Atlus Just Announced A Really Rad-Looking RPG

So, OK. On one hand, the boringly-titled Lost Dimension looks like a pretty typical turn-based strategy-role-playing game, with anime graphics and a bit of a Valkyria Chronicles flair to it.

On the other hand, well, there's this, via publisher Atlus (who announced today that it's publishing Lost Dimension in North America later this year for PS3 and Vita):

Tactical RPGs are awesome! You carefully plot out movement, work to flank enemies and chain attacks, spend time thinking about using the perfect attack, support or defensive ability! And then after a successful combat mission, you come back to your base of operations, chat for a bit with your 10 other psychically gifted allies, and then doom one of them to be erased from existence.

Wait, what?

That's right, there are traitors in your midst, and the only way to suss them out is to establish bonds within the group of warriors — the only group capable of preventing the world from being obliterated at the hands of the evil extra-terrestrial being literally called "The End." After using your psychic powers to rifle through your allies' minds, there's a short trial and then the one found guilty of being a traitor is erased. Ominous, right? Well the worst part is that you won't find out until the final battle with The End - if any in your party left are traitors, they will turn on you, making the battle that much harder. Oh, and because we couldn't make it that easy, traitors are chosen at random for each playthrough. Good luck!

This sounds incredible. I'm in. (More screenshots here.)

    That sounds pretty awesome, would strongly consider playing.

    Wow, giving me a strong dagonronpa + monster hunter vibe

    That circle in the screenshot. Looks so familiar....

    Sounds like an RPG version of "The Mole"

      That being said, it looks like it might have an interesting difficulty curve, if your "warriors" are getting stronger, but you're eliminating some of them as you go...

    I thought this said Bad-Looking RPG.

      I totally did too and was ready to comment with righteous fury before realising I'd misread it.

    This really does look like an interesting ga-oh, Atlus.... Well I guess I'll get to play it in a couple of years then.

    I'd given up hope that this would make it out in English.
