Check out the newly launched webpage for upcoming 2D Xbox 360 shooter Caladrius. If you're a JRPG nerd like I am, the first thing you'll notice is ...hey, what are Devil Survivor (Atlus SRPG) characters doing on this page?
Moss and its Raiden IV team are working with Suzuhito Yasuda of Devil Survivor (and manga Yozakura Quartet) fame on Caladrius. Basiscape (Hitoshi Sakimoto, composer of Valkyria Chronicles, Final Fantasy XII) will handle things in the sound department. This should be good.
Poking around the webpage you'll find out that they're not Devil Survivor characters, but look a lot like them. You know -- pointy boobs, stabby hair.
Things are looking nice from the screenshots we nabbed from 4Gamer. It's all vertical and elemental-y and dark looking.
Japanese gamers get Caladrius on April 25. This looks like it would be very easy to localize.
