potential characters you can play as?
Apparently there is a male/female base player character, and you can customize the character further. Those designs seem to indicate what sort of customization options are available in terms of armor, etc.

Player characters:

Looks pretty amazing. But that Golam Book looks suspiciously much like the version of the Necronomicon that appears in the Evil Dead movies.

The premise of this game is pretty interesting, in that you are fighting those who have similar powers to you, but have overdosed...I have no real expectations when it comes to the story, but it has potential at least

I have no idea if there going to be permanent mutations/self-mutilation, but it would be pretty awesome if you know that some players in the game are total badasses because their characters look like unaltered human beings.

OK officially HYPE. Damn those monster really hit the nail.


Edit: That girl(with claw) kind of sexy...

....Damn @ concept art. Pretty disturbing. I don't play handheld games but it's still nice to see companies going for new IP's with a respectable budget.

It also seems that the way you play will change your character even further.

This looks really interesting. I like both the character and the BG art.
Oh wow, I didn't notice that at first. Looks like the textures are...point sampled? Very strange.

Either its simply the result of its early development or Inafune likes pixelated textures. Very strange.
Some Japanese devs do seem to actuslly think like that. It boggles the mind. If that's the case here I hope someone at Sony pummels some sense into them.

Monster designs are very reminiscent of Shadow Hearts. Obviously Marvelous AQL is a far cry from the original SH team, but maybe there's an artist or two left behind.

The screens they've released aren't too terribly encouraging (those textures, what the hell), but I really hope that they're able to capture the background artwork well as they are definitely something to behold.

A game that genuinely interests me on the Vita. The first one to do so in-fact. Will keep an eye on it. The concept art is fantastic.
