Reaper, a free-to-play action RPG, is coming exclusively to the PS Vita. Luc Bernard has recently released more information concerning his RPG involving Death and her army of Reapers.

Originally announced as a PSP game in 2010 and revealed to be coming to PS Vita back in October 2013, Reaper had been put on hold and is now close to making its appearance on PS Vita. The game adds to the traditional RPG formula of leveling up and enemy destruction by throwing cards into the mix. These cards will take on four different roles:

  • Weapon and Armor Cards: which arm you with various weapons and armor (obviously) with different capabilities
  • Summons: bring in huge creatures to inflict damage on your enemies
  • Spells: cast fire and various other spells
  • Pets: the pets will follow you and attack your enemies

The game revolves heavily around the story of Death and her trials and tribulations in love and life.

“For as long as she can remember, Death has worked tirelessly to take the lives and souls of humans. Constantly ending the lives of innocents and corrupt alike began to take its toll on her and she soon grew lonely and depressed. Eventually, she fell in love with a mortal man. After much debate with her sisters, she chose to disobey them and granted her lover immortality and in doing so, created the first Reaper.”

Corrupted by his newfound power, he left Death and broke her heart. Now, if there’s ever anything I’ve learned in life, it’s that you don’t want to upset Death in any way. Regardless, she withdrew herself from her job and the world until her sisters forced her back into killing once again.

Now she has become a cold and bitter husk of her former self, eternally a slave to her dark task.

Now Death is back, and hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. She is forming a new army of Reapers that will not betray her again, and she is out to kill in cold blood (she’s Death..s killing is kind of what she does).

Reaper will be playable on the E3 show floor, and once again will be free-to-play.

    Hmm… the plot is interesting, but the execution looks kinda lame. Here’s hoping the game play is good.
