Over the last few years, I have discovered that I personally enjoy side-scrolling action/platforming games quite a bit. From the countless “Metroidvania” games (Shadow Complex, Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions for NDS) to the stylish, hack-and-slash titles (The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai, Shank, Dust: An Elysian Tail, etc.), some of these simple 2D games end up being the ones that I find the most enjoyable to play.
For this very reason, I have been looking forward to Atlus’s Code of Princess for the Nintendo 3DS dating back to the very moment I first read about the oddly-titled side-scroller. In fact, I would put it near the top of my list for “most anticipated 3DS games of 2012”.
Now you can check out yet another trailer for Code of Princess; this time it focuses on the game’s intriguing co-op mode. Up to four players can wirelessly play through the game, and the action looks pretty heated, judging from the footage below:
In addition, the image you see at the top of this post is actually an early glimpse of the fancy art book that will be bundled with the Code of Princess Collector’s Edition.
Aside from its name, what do you think about Code of Princess? Are you as confident as I am that Atlus could have one of the biggest 3DS sleepers of 2012 on its hands? Only time will tell; the game launches in early October. Stay tuned for more updates as they appear online.
