New screenshots and Limited Edition packaging.

Following its release date reveal in Famitsu this week, Famitsu.com has gone live with its online preview of Toki to Towa, revealing new characters Makimona and Bikoddo, as well as a first look at the Limited Edition packaging.

Key Art

Makimona

Voiced by Aya Endou, she is the diviner who forteold of the attack at Toki and the hero’s wedding. Her appearance at the wedding, however, suggests she has some sort of relationship with the assassin, Bikoddo.

Bikoddo

Voiced by Tomokazu Sugita, he is the leader of the assassin’s guild. He attacks the wedding at the beginning of the game. At that point, Toki, the game’s heroine, travels back six months before the wedding, to pursue Bikoddo and discover why he attacked the hero.

Limited Edition

The Limited Edition includes a 48-page artwork booklet, soundtrack and voiced drama CD, redeem code for eleven custom PlayStation 3 themes, and special storage box for 9,980 yen.

    That looks like a very nice Limited Edition. I especially like the cover of the artbook.

      Agreed!
      The cover looks very refreshing, it kinda reminds me of Suikoden cover.

      That cover and the custom artwork on the box are the reason I’m buying the LE. It looks hot.

      update:// That was quick, amiami.com is out of Limited Editions, within hours. Playasia still has allocations left, at a hefty premium, though.

    That’s really nice Limited Edition the art is so good.
    Hope the game come over here with this kind of Limited Edition too and don’t ever change the cover. It’s so good!

    My god! the animations look so…clear! beyond HD it seems, they look very well drawn and just wow, this is a pure HD animation jrpg.

    This looks very close if not as good as Angel Beats animation on bluray! the only difference is that this is a game lol not anime and it still does the same job as anime pros.

    As a huge anime fan, often watch on bluray i can tell you that this is animation at its finest.

    Looking at the new male character, seems like they want to keep up the “Time” theme to it, making him wear a pocket watch. The new female character looks interesting.

    Can’t wait!

    A very cool LE imo!

    Everything about this game looks sexy. I only wish the box art used the limited edition packaging’s artwork.

    • 浪黒雷 (ロークロライ/ro-kurorai)

      look at it that way: LE owners get a bonus cover. Albeit not as sexy, but the drop-dead-gorgeous artwork is printed on the special box without any logos (e.g. CERO) ;)

  • Artevius Hardin

    I’m loving the way this game looks, but I can’t quite figure out what genre it’s suppose to be. If this was localized I’d definitely pick up the limited edition, it screams quality.

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      It’s an RPG.

      Or, as it’s officially labeled, “HD Animation RPG.”

    • 浪黒雷 (ロークロライ/ro-kurorai)

      Think of it as an experimental JRPG. The scenario writer is experienced, so the story should be above average and interesting at least. The time and love themes make it compelling to me.

  • LordKaiser

    It looks sexy! I love the art of this game.

  • Anime101210

    Im loving everything about this game so far! Man everything from the art, to the characters, to the boxart and the Limited Edition contents. I WANT THIS GAME. I hope all those meetings Mikami has been having have paid off and this game will see the west fully localized!

    All thats left to see now is gameplay, but at this point, that’s just icing on a VERY delicious looking cake :P

      I want Amazon Japan to put up a high-res version of that LE image already!

      • Anime101210

        Thanks for the correction, dont know how I mixed up Mikami and Mikage, maybe because I was just reading that new interview about Mikami. But yeah we NEED that in a high-res as I cant believe how attractive this games art is! Heck, I even love the regular box art and dat soundtrack art! Its all simply amazing!

        Hi Sal, here’s some more hi-rez goodness of the stunning artwork,
