Atlus is bringing yet another RPG for the Nintendo DS. Knights in the Nightmare is a strange mixture that is part RPG, part real-time strategy, and part shooter. The game tells the tale of a castle in the center of lake that lies somewhere between the heavens and the underworld. All was peaceful until one night, all of the inhabitants of the castle were slaughtered in a surprise attack from the monsters of the underworld. Later, a Wisp emerges from an abandoned church deep in the woods. It has no memory, but it is drawn toward the castle. There, it reawakens the souls of the knights that fell that night, and it leads them toward the evil beings that took their lives in a story that is told from the past and present simultaneously.
The game features unique touch controls as you control the Wisp to aid over one hundred playable characters. And once the game is complete, a second story is unlocked from the prospective of the demons.
Knights in the Nightmare is due out June second for $34.99.
