Atlus and Vanillaware revealed this week that 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim is now up for digital pre-order from PlayStation Store! The game already came out last year in Japan and received a pretty good reception from critics for the story as well as the mechanics. Not to mention being able to blend a tactical RPG with a side-scrolling adventure. Now those of us in the west will be able to experience it next month as a PS4 exclusive. The game will have you playing as students in an alternate version of the 1980's as you'll be piloting mechs to fight off kaiju who have become increasingly violent. You know, like you do between biology and after-school romance.
