Forthcoming 3DS RPG brawler Code of Princess has already displayed its cooperative side in a previous trailer, but publisher Atlus is keen to stress there's some less harmonious elements to the game, too - as the new 'Versus' video proves.

The game comes from the same team that made the sublime Guardian Heroes for the Sega Saturn way back in the '90s - a game which contained an insanely enjoyable battle mode where players could kick the seven shades out of one another. We're pleased as punch that this spiritual sequel is going to offer the same kind of gameplay.

Code of Princess is due for release on 9th October in North America. A European release has yet to be confirmed, but our fingers are so tightly crossed that they've started to turn a funny black colour. Is that normal?
