Atlus has released a trailer for 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim Prologue, the premium early look at 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim. Given that we've seen very little of the game up until this point, we've never been quite sure what it's all about. Is it an action-based title like previous projects from developer Vanillaware? Or is it something totally new? Well, we may finally have an answer. Kind of.

Going by this trailer, which features the most gameplay footage that we've seen thus far, 13 Sentinels appears to be a visual novel of sorts. You can move your current character from area to area, but it looks like storytelling is going to be the focus -- at least in Prologue. Dialogue options also seem to play a part.

Prologue launches in Japan on the 14th March, and once it's out, we should finally have a proper grasp on what 13 Sentinels actually is. Until then, let us know if a visual novel-style title is your kind of thing in the comments section below.
