Praised by the leaders of the Japanese video game industry, the epic sci-fi mystery of Vanillaware, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim has been delayed for PlayStation 4 albeit for a few days.
Initially slated to release on September 8, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim will now be released by Atlus exclusively on PlayStation 4 on September 22. On its official PlayStation blog, the lead editor Allie Doyon gave the reason why the game was delayed in the following manner:
It took some time to work everything out, but ultimately, we ended up recording the rest over video conference call. It’s not as simple as just calling in and talking — we needed studio-quality audio recordings, a way for the audio engineers to work with said recordings on the spot and afterwards, and a way for each actor to view the director’s screenshared script at a readable size. To help achieve that studio quality, actors set up makeshift studios in their own homes, which sometimes meant getting cozy in a closet with a nice mic! Needless to say, there were a lot of technical complications, but everyone really went the extra mile to make it happen.
From the storytellers behind Odin Sphere and Dragon’s Crown, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim accompanies the player through a mysterious avant-garde adventure that it embraces humanity, time and space through thirteen interconnected stories.
Today’s announcement is also accompanied by the news related to the English dubbing, which will be available through a patch on Day 1. Players will discover the truth through a narrative adventure that travels through time with compelling vocal interpretations and a breathtaking artistic sector, all interspersed with fast-paced tactical combat; customizing the Sentinels with an arsenal of mechsuit weapons and fight to defend humanity.
13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim will now release on September 22nd exclusively on PS4.
