First details of Namco Bandai and NIS’s upcoming Ar Tonelico 3 have been released today along with the first teaser clip and a couple of screenshots, which actually don’t look too shabby.
Ar Tonelico 3 takes place on the tower of Sol Clusta on the planet of Ar Ciel, dominated by a higher class named Reyvateils. Their ideal world only consists of them and purified humans.
Aoto is the main protagonist in the third installment, specializing in construction at high elevations. He has a thing where he must complete what he starts, but doesn’t really consider his actions before taking them. Saki is a Reyvateil created in a laboratory for a world plan. However, she escapes before the plan commences and bumps into Aoto after hiding several years. When she’s distressed, she can use a power called “Miracle”. Another character, Phinnel, is a pure blood Reyvateil born in the kingdom of Clustania. She works a restaurant.
