Infinite Line website officially translated

Sega Europe's official Platinum Games sites are up, including one for the DS RPG Infinite Line. It's a faithful translation of the Japanese Infinite Line site, with the same three Japanese screenshots. But this time, you can read the text on the website.

The newly-legible text doesn't exactly contain gameplay details, but it confirms what we've puzzled out so far. You upgrade your ship with "a combination of module-like parts," which sounds like an accurate description of the Tetris -style parts we've seen. You won't be limited to customizing a single ship. According to the site, you can choose to work on the same ship, or you can acquire multiple ships.

The bombastic copy concludes with "A magnificent story that more than lives up to the word 'voyage'. A world that cannot be constrained by the word 'RPG'." As if Clover fans didn't have high enough expectations.

Infinite Line site open with new screens

The website for Sega and Platinum Games' Infinite Line is already up, with little more than teaser content at the moment. There are a few paragraphs explaining what we already know about the game (150 crew members to choose from) along with some PR-type text about how deep the story is. But there are also three new screenshots, which we've added to our gallery.

They're a bit confusing to look at out of context, but we can at least tell that one is a spaceship selection menu, and one shows more of the Tetris-like upgrading. Parts take up varying amounts of a 3-by-3 square, and there seem to be many of each type of part to choose from (the screenshot shows Type-A through Type-K of some part). The last screenshot, as far as we can tell, shows a ship flying toward some kind of portal structure, maybe. Some kind of pretty, futury space stuff.

Sega officially announces Platinum Games deal, Infinite Line media released

We totally knew it was coming, but Sega announced their partnership with the Platinum Games supergroup last night, officially revealing the three games in development from the former Clover staff. Of interest to us: Infinite Line, the sci-fi RPG codeveloped by Platinum and Nude Maker and directed by the latter company's Hifumi Kouno.

Along with the announcement, three pieces of spaceship concept art were released, which you can be totally impressed by in our gallery. They all show dates from early 2007, so this thing's been in the works for a while.

In addition, Famitsu has posted some very confusing-looking screenshots, which reveal the process of arranging ship parts as some kind of Tetris puzzle-type thing, a matter of fitting parts composed of differing numbers and configurations of blocks onto your ship.

A finite wait for confirmation of Infinite Line

Infinite Line, the rumored Platinum Games sci-fi RPG published by Sega, is totally a real game and not something made up by jerks to hurt us. These Famitsu scans reveal the Platinum Games/Nudemaker (Steel Battalion) co-production as pretty much what we heard, only awesome.

You'll have over 150 ship parts from which you can build your ship, and over 200 crew members. Infinite Line uses a sort of Final Fantasy-like active-time system, in which each character has an individual wait between turns, but those count down in real time. The interesting wrinkle with Infinite Line's system is that a full ATB gauge enables more options.
