E3 09: Trinity: Souls of Zill O'll is such an RPG


Omega Force has grown very comfortable in producing endless Dynasty Warriors games, but Koei's internal studio is taking a new path with Trinity: Souls of Zill O'll, a brand new RPG that's exclusive to the PS3. There was no hands-on at E3, but we learned a lot more about the game, and have a sparkly trailer for you. It sparkles!

The game's premise revolves around a prophecy that potentiall suggests King Balor, your typical nefarious ruler of the land, as a man who will die at the hands of his own son. This ties into the fate of three adventurers -- A warrior, a wizard and an assassin -- who will have to dungeon crawl their way to victory and fulfil the predicted death of Balor. The game's story is in a "non-linear format" and will be full of sidequests. It's supposed to be atypical of your usual emo-themed JRPG, so that's something to look forward to. 

As far as gameplay goes, you'll be able to switch between your three characters and use a wide range of physical and magical attacks that can be used to create combos. Omega Force is also touting a "fully interactive environment," full of destructible walls, flammable and freezable areas, and hidden paths. 

So far, so good. I love it when a team that's become famous for one thing tries something different. This will be a welcome break from Dynasty Warriors, and I can't wait to try it out.
