JRPG “Toki to Towa” is Coming to America as “Time and Eternity”

Developer Luminous Arc and Imageepooch’s Time and Eternity will be localized for North America and Europe this summer, western publisher NIS America announced today.

The RPG, known as Toki to Towa in Japan, will be a PlayStation 3 exclusive and, as an added bonus, will receive some new DLC shortly after release in the states. The game features beautiful backgrounds and the ever popular cel-shaded animation style for the characters.  It’s another one of those games you look at and wonder if you’re playing a game or controlling an anime.

If you’re not familiar with the game, Time and Eternity tells the tale of a knight who is murdered during his wedding to a princess named Toki.  Before the wedding she makes the startling revelation that her body is inhabited by two souls. Using this supernatural gift, Toki and her companions must go back in time and uncover the murder plot in order to prevent it and save the kingdom, as well as her beloved.

In-Game, players can switch between the princess’ two personalities, Toki and Towa, utilizing their unique skills depending on opponents’ weaknesses.  That’s right, it’s a game about a time traveling girl with multiple personalities.  Somebody get The Doctor on the phone.

Time and Eternity was released in Japan last October through publisher Namco Bandai.
