Aegis: The First Mission for Mobile Phones

星期三, 十一月 28th, 2007 by Tony at www.digitaldevildb.com

A couple of weeks back, Famitsu unveiled the first information on a Persona 3 prequel for mobile phones. Entitled Aegis: The First Mission, the game stars Aigis and appears to deal with the specific events that led to the Shadow’s domination of the area years prior. The game is an action RPG; screen shot captions state that the game still utilizes SP and Personae summoning for attacks. It features characters both new and familiar to those who have played through both Persona 3 releases. The title was released for download on November 14th, 2007.

While it appears the game is available for all mobile phones (including Softbank 3G terminals), the title seems to be focused on Yahoo!’s mobile network. For those interested (and obviously living in Japan), Famitsu gives the following directions: enter the phone menu, pick RPG, then Megami Tensei and then “Aegis THE FIRST MISSION”. The game costs 525 yen (about $4.75 USD) , plus tax.

The following screens are from the Famitsu entry:

Thanks to QBasic for pointing out the original Siliconera entry about the game. You can view his original thread on the subject here, which includes some additional images thanks to Emilio.

Gamespot’s product listing for Persona 3 now includes a very small image of the final package you will receive when you pick up the game. Looks pretty nice when it’s all together.

Mitsuru Figurine from Kotobukiya

星期三, 五月 2nd, 2007 by Tony at www.digitaldevildb.com

James H. wrote in to let us know that not only is Kotobukiya making an Aigis figurine, they’re also making one of Mitsuru. It turns out that the Mitsuru figurine was actually the first of the two announced. It is planned for a July release in Japan and follows the same 1/7 scale specifications. She comes with both a sword and gun.

James was also kind enough to send over several related links. In addition to the original Kotobukiya page, AnimeNewsI also has a page on the figurine that is complete with photos (which can also be found on our Persona 3 Merchandise page). It also turns out that Big Bad Toystore still be stocking both of these figures in the Fall. You can pre-order them for around $35 USD each.

Persona 3’s Aigis 1/7 Scale Figurine from Kotobukiya

星期五, 四月 27th, 2007 by Tony at www.digitaldevildb.com

During that whole downtime period I managed to miss this bit of information from AnimeNewsI.

It turns out that Kotobukiya, probably best known for their one-coin figurine series, is making a 1/7 scale (clocking in her at about 210 mm high, or about 8.25 inches), pre-painted PVC figurine of Aigis. She is posable at the neck, arms and wrists, unlike many higher-end PVC figurines. Of special note is that images show her with both her normal and gun hands, implying that these can be interchanged as you please.

Kotobukiya plans to sell her for ¥6,090 in August, 2007. This equals out to about $51 USD. An image is included below, but you can see the rest on our Persona 3 merchandise page or by visiting the original source above.

Fredric Paul’s article touched off a discussion with some colleagues of mine, who agreed that Google abuses has become careless thanks to its “monopoly” with AdSense by (among other things) callously dropping AdSense participants for alleged click fraud without a reasonable appeals policy. A request for an explanation fell on deaf ears, and my colleague was left with the impression that Google “would have been more likely to work with me,” if it weren’t in such a strong position.
