Good news for fans of unique Japanese games- The beautiful tactical RPG/visual novel Eiyuu Senki will finally be hitting the US PlayStation 3 later this year thanks to the independent localization group, Fruitbat Factory.
I know I probably won’t ever play Eiyuu Senki, but that doesn’t mean I can’t drool over the game’s stunning imagery. Maybe they’ll release an art book too and I can just pick up that.
You can read the game’s synopsis and check out a handful of screenshots after the jump.

In a world where powerful nations run rampant and heroes battle one another for supremacy, the great nation of Britannia seeks to unite the world through peaceful means while the European Union has adopted an aggressive policy and the Seafaring Nation of Vinland thrives on pillage and plunder. Far in the east, the small nation of Zipang is stuck fast in a quagmire of civil unrest.
In the midst of all this, our memory-loss stricken main character has a fateful meeting with a Hero of Yamatai, Himiko. Together they settle Zipang’s internal disputes and set off into a world covered with the burning embers of war.
