Acquire’s recently teased PlayStation Vita game is called Mind 0 (stylized MIND≒0), the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu reveals.
The game, developed in collaboration with Class of Heroes studio Zerodiv, is a dark and stylish school dungeon RPG featuring character designs by Kyo, scenario by Minato Kushimachi, and sound by Zizz Studio.
The game will have two worlds—the real world and a crazy spiritual world—the latter in which players can use a special MIND (Mental Inside Nobody Doll) ability to call forth their Persona-like counterparts. It will have fully voiced scenes, 3D turn-based battles, and 2D adventure game-like conversation scenes. When you strike enemies, you’ll see onomatopoeic words like “Barin!” and “Zugyan.”
Settings include Akihabara, Yokohama, Amamiya, and Nippori. It should be noted that these are written in kanji different from the names of the actual areas in Japan. The game starts at Saitama Prefecture high school.
