Sega’s Infinite Space: First Look at an Infinitely Amazing Detailed Game

Posted by Michael Pinto on May 14, 2009 in Animation, Videogames |

If you’re an anime fanboy (or fangurl) who loves spaceship battles it looks like Infinite Space from Sega for the Nintendo DS will be a role playing game well worth checking out. These just released promotional films from Sega look amazing given the limits of the screen size on of the DS, the game itself allows you to build, control and outfit over 150 different spaceships and features over 200 anime styled characters to interact with during the course of your game.

My understanding is that the plot and inspiration of the game owes much to science fiction author Sir Arthur C. Clark, specifically 2001: A Space Odyssey and Childhood’s End and the game itself takes place in an alternate Earth which features a different historical timeline. The title is produced by Atsushi Inaba and directed by Hifumi Kouno and is due out in June of this year. Here are two short films which give you a sense of the story:

And here are screenshots for the current website (which has a long load time):

As you can see the game features a large number of characters which almost reminds me of Bleach in terms of the variety:

This screen gives a sample of a spaceship battle — the Nintendo DS screen is quite small, but that said you can pack a great deal of detail into it:
