Gungnir launch trailer promises SRPG action

Though the Sony PSP is definitely on the way out, Atlus is providing some last minute support for the system with this awesome looking strategy RPG. Of course, Vita owners will be happy to have another downloadable title to try out as well. What do you think? Does Gungnir look like a winner?

Game info: A game as original as its narrative, Gungnir's strategy RPG mechanics offer a number of fresh twists on an expertly honed formula. The classic balance of risk and reward, a staple of Sting titles, enriches Gungnir's deep strategic battles and gives the player critical decisions to weigh.
In a land ravaged by disparity where the impovershed must battle for survival, the fate of all is thrust into uncertainty when rebels happen upon custody of a young female noble - and a magical spear of immesurable power falls from the heavens. Now, hunted by incumbent powers desperate to reclaim the girl and armed with a weapon capable of reshaping the realm, the Resistance must wage war to deliver themselves from the tyranny of their oppressors.
  • A Unique Political Drama Set in a Captivating Fantasy World—Dealing with societal inequity and racial prejudice far heavier themes than the average video game, Gungnir's intense narrative offers gamers a world worth saving and characters deserving of empathy and attention.
  • Deep Risk/Reward Battle Mechanics—Building upon the traditional action queue of turn-based SRPGs, actions in Gungnir all have a numerical wait interval associated with them. Faster actions bear smaller numbers, allowing them to precede slower preexisting attacks. Should the player wish, they may sacrifice tactical points, which afford them more combat options to accelerate action.
  • From the Makers of Knights in the Nightmare and Riviera—Developer Sting has a proud, extensive history of expertly crafted, highly innovative RPGs, having garnered critical acclaim and fan admiration with classics like Riviera, Yggdra Union, and Knights in the Nightmare.
