Plus, new details on the MIND battle system.

Famitsu this week introduces two new characters in Acquire and Zerodiv’s upcoming Persona-like PS Vita RPG Mind 0.

Mind 0 Mind 0

  • Kanade Sakyou (CV: Yuuki Kaji) – a boy who who bewilders the crew with his words, which could be taken as either advice or prognostication.
  • Kotone Shiragiku (CV: Minori Chihara) – a mysterious girl who appears before Kei (the protagonist). She lacks self confidence and does not get along well with others. While she is aware of this, she can’t take a step towards conquering it.

Also revealed, during battle, players can freely call out and dismiss their MIND counterparts with the L button. While your MIND is out, button inputs change, your attack power increases, but your MP gradually decreases. If you run out of MP, a MIND “break” occurs and you won’t be able to act.

Thanks, Umimi.

  • sherimae1324

    the art for this game is reaaaallly nice ^_^

  • ultros!

    I see Chihiro…

  • lorelai4cuties

    anything close to persona is good to me :)
    lets hope for us release

  • Elvick

    I hope Aksys or NIS America pick this up. I don’t see Atlus doing it.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Why? Due to its similarities to Persona? I would think that would be a reason for them to pick it up, though if anybody picked it up I would be happy.

      • Elvick

        All I see happening if Atlus does it, is a ton of their fans going, “We don’t want this knock off Persona shit we want Persona 5!!!”

        People already whine about P5 over any game related to Atlus. With a game so similar, it’d be even worse.

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          Yes… I suppose this is true… it just made sense in the sense that since it was so similar to Persona it would have less competition being from the same publisher.

    • PrinceHeir

      lol i hope it WON”T be picked up by atlus US.

      just leave it to to those two or Xseed as well.

      • Elvick

        Only reason I didn’t pick Xseed was because with them it’s a crap shoot on whether it’ll be digital only or not. I’d hate that.

        • PrinceHeir

          what are some of Xseed’s digital only games?

          the only game i can think of is Way of the Samurai 4.

          but it was either digital only or no game.

          which reminds me i need to check that game out!!!!

          http://blog.us.playstation.com/2012/04/04/way-of-the-samurai-4-coming-exclusively-to-ps3/

          • z_merquise

            Corpse Party and the 2nd game, CP: Book of Shadows are digital only.

            For a game like Corpse Party, it’s quite understandable why it’s digital only and I’m thankful of XSeed for taking such risk.

            Oh and yeah, go get Corpse Party if you still don’t got it.

            • PrinceHeir

              yeah i need to get that game as well!!

              but i think i remember telling myself to wait till all 3 games are here then do a one shop spree :D

  • fyi1191

  • William McDouble Williams

    >If you run out of MP, a MIND “break” occurs and you won’t be able to act.

    Sounds similar to a system used in Star Ocean: Till The End of Time. If you ran out of MP in that game (or TP, I think, I can’t remember what it was called, lol), your character became incapacitated and couldn’t move (which in the main character’s case, meant you were dead and got a game over).

  • Eclipse

    I’m really loving the art for this game.

    I also like the fact that Chihara Minori’s voicing the sword user <3

  • Kurisu Makise

    MIND 0 is looking good so far. Art direction is great and it’s good to get details about the MIND companions. Just need some video footage =3

  • http://blacksitepsu.deviantart.com/ BlacksitePSU

    More like, “a boy who bewilders the crew with his many belts”. =P

  • Hinataharem

    Wait, is this an action RPG?

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-Ng/100000854638739 Dylan Ng

      Don’t think so. I think its a turn based one.

  • DrForbidden

    Hmm. Judging by the information on the official site, Kanade isn’t part of MC Takahashi’s group. He might even be an antagonist.

  • PrinceHeir

    looks ace :)

  • ekibyougami

    > Chihara Minori
    > doing CV for the sword-wielding chic with a samurai persona
