Every year, TGS forum brings important industry figures together to debate and discuss important trends in the market and industry. This year’s first keynote speech was made by Shin Unozawa, the new Computer Entertainment Supplier’s Association (CESA) chairman and current Vice President of Namco Bandai games.

Sol Trigger Hands-on Preview

By Janelle | September 20, 2012 at 5:50 am

Today I saw a banner on the show floor declaring that Sol Trigger is “The last JRPG.” I was really confused until I realized that Sol Trigger was developed by Image Epoch, a company with a few games under the “JRPG” label, and the “last” refers to it being the last PSP game under that label.
