Treasures of Montezuma: Arena is coming on Playstation Vita

Over at the EU Playstation Blog, Alawar Entertainment has announced that a follow-up to Vita’s Free-to-Play Treasures of Montezuma Blitz will be coming soon to the PS Vita. This new game will be called Treasures of Montezuma: Arena.

Treasures of Montezuma: Arena will feature three games modes:

  • Dynamic turn-based puzzle RPG Story
  • Multiplayer Tournament
  • Classic match-three Endless mode

As someone who played a lot of Treasures of Montezuma Blitz (my tips on how to get great scores can be found here!), I’m really interested in playing this new game, and I’m quite intrigued with the “dynamic turn-based puzzle RPG” mode!

Are any of you interested in this new game? What would you like to see in it?

We are pleased to let you know that Treasures of Montezuma: Arena, our latest and greatest Treasures of Montezuma game, is finally coming to PlayStation Vita as a downloadable free-to-play title, and we hope you have been anticipating it as much as we have!

Featuring three all-new game modes, including dynamic turn-based puzzle RPG Story, multiplayer Tournament, and classic match-three Endless mode, Treasures of Montezuma: Arena encompasses the best there is in the history of the game. Moreover, it goes beyond that by introducing more tactical options than ever, thus becoming the largest addition to the series both in terms of sheer size and impact.

The story of the game revolves around ancient Aztec emperor, Montezuma, who was forced by the Spanish conquistadors to flee to an otherworldly place ruled by monsters, and fight through enemy ranks to reclaim his freedom and gain power to return.

[Vita JRPG Preview] Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars announced

Monsters have invaded the world of Aterra, and only a few special individuals, imbued with the power of the Star God, are equipped to fight it. With only a small group of warriors and a narrow window of time in which their powers are at their peak, the solution is clear: combine your Star power to make magical Star Children to boost up your forces in battle!
The life of a student can be complicated when you’re exploring dungeons, fighting monsters, AND trying to maintain a high school lifestyle. Learn to balance your activities because the deeper the bond you have with your classmates, the stronger the Star Children you’ll make! In this stimulating JRPG, you’ll be able to create bonds with 7 different female Disciples and create 24 classes of Star Children, so you must learn how to create the perfect Star Children for any situation. In no time, you’ll have dozens of powerful kids with different skills that can take on everything the monsters throw at you.

Atlus USA announced that Spike Chunsoft’s Japanese RPG Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars would get released on both the PS Vita and 3DS in North America, and is set for release on April 15, 2014.

The first Conception game was released on the PSP and didn’t get released outside of Japan, so I didn’t really know what to expect before looking at the trailer (included in the post). This game looks a LOT like the Persona series, which means that it promises to be a very fun game!
