NIS caught me off guard this week with a surprise tactical RPG, Generation of Chaos: Pandora’s Reflection! Developed by IdeaFactory and Sting, GoC: PR is the sequel to a pretty solid SRPG that came out many moons ago.
Pandora’s Reflection actually changes up the gameplay quite a bit this time around. The game sports an active-time battle system that engage players to time attacks for extra damage. The mechanic seems similar music/rhythm games, minus the music and rhythm. It also touts a long story with multiple endings that will sure to keep you busy, like any good RPG should.
I can’t say it speaks to the non-JRPG gamers looking for a new title to conquer, but anyone searching for a solid strategy RPG should look no further. Generation of Chaos: Pandora’s Reflection is available now in North America via the PSN for the PSP; it is also compatible with the PS Vita. It will be released in Europe a few weeks later on March 5, 2013.
Jaime aka. Paco is an avid fan of JRPGs and Lakers basketball, both of which are doing somewhat poorly in their current state, however both seem to show positive improvement in the future. If you want to pop him a question, just comment below or reach him on his Twitter @RTBL1990
