The Guided Fate Paradox is getting a sequel in Japan

Nippon Ichi Software is releasing a sequel to The Guided Fate Paradox, and it's coming to the PlayStation 3 in Japan on July 24. Famitsu (via Gematsu) revealed some scant details today on The Guided Fate Cross Thesis: The plot apparently centers around two heroines, and if the player saves one of the ladies, the other one dies. Yikes.

Given The Guided Fate Paradox starred a hero who became a god by winning a mall lottery, the game's probably not as dark as that synopsis makes it sound. The first game combined isometric dungeon-crawling with the turn-based RPG strategy of Disgaea, and featured, among other things, a group of companion angels clad in maid outfits who help players do their godly duty. You know, like in most religions.

There'll be more details on The Guided Fate Cross Thesis in Famitsu's print magazine this month, but we'll have to wait and see if NISAmerica has any plans to bring it to the West like it did the prior game.
