The 3rd Birthday Screenshots
Square Enix, developers of the upcoming PSP The 3rd Birthday, recently released a metric fuck-tonne of screenshots for the game. Don’t know what The 3rd Birthday is? Well, here’s what I know.
Weird ass creatures have invaded Manhattan and are tearing shit up. The ground teams that have been tasked with containing these things call them the Twisted. One year after the initial invasion the Counter Twisted Investigation, or CTI, is formed. Aya Brea, a member of the CTI and former NYPD detective, is our last hope of stopping the Twisted. Due to advanced mitochondria that she got from her dead sister’s transplanted eye (or something) she is able to use an ability called Overdrive, which lets her take control of NPCs, but from the gameplay footage (which you can see here) it looks more like she just switches places with them.
And that about sums up all I know about the plot. This is the third game in a series called Parasite Eve which I have never played so I don’t know much (if anything) about the series canon up to this point. But this looks interesting. If the NPCs can actually hold their own in battle then the Overdrive thing could be really cool, and I have been looking for more excuses to play my handhelds.
But enough about that. Screenshots, go:
The 3rd Birthday is out March 29th.
