An "ultra rule of right classical fantasy RPG."

FuRyu, the studio behind Unchained Blades, is developing Exstetra, a new “ultra rule of right classical fantasy RPG” for PS Vita and 3DS, Famitsu reveals.


Suddenly fused with a different world, Tokyo has been transformed. This world called Amazia is a world determined for ruin. Caught up in this vast change, the main character descends onto Ameijia. Ameijia’s dwellers say he is Prisma, the only one who can save the world from destruction. Will you be able to stop the two worlds from fusing, return the world to its original state, and save all the people who have assimilated into “nothingness” from the great change?

Save the World with a Kiss RPG

Exstetra‘s main character is Ryouma, the only person in existence who can absorb an energy called “Ex” from enemies. Using Ex causes miraculous acts to occur. Additionally, when you kiss the Knights of Prisma (detailed below), you give them Ex energy, which has the ability to awaken them from disillusion.

Keyword: Prisma

Prisma is the being that can save the altered world from destruction. Using the Ex energy absorbed from enemy monsters, various miraculous acts can be unleashed. Additionally, it has the power of to awaken those who have been drawn into Amazia as Knights of Prisma.

Keyword: Prisma Knight

The people who have been drawn from reality into Amazia can be released when Ex is shared with them from Prisma. They are awoken to help Prisma as the Knights of Prisma. They are people who have also been entrusted with the fate of helping save the world.


Ryouma Narusawa (CV: Yuichi Nakamura) – The main character. It is said that he is Prisma, the one who will bring peace to the world and save it from destruction. However, he has lost his memories.

Shiho Inaba (CV: Kaori Ishihara) – A 17-year-old high school girl and aspiring idol. She was mysteriously drawn into Amazia and was awoken as a Knight of Prisma by Ryouma.

Masaru Mitarai (CV: Takuya Eguchi) – A high school boy who was also drawn into Amazia around the same time as Ryouma. He’s the type who can make the mood lighter with ease. Is he also a Knight of Prisma…?


Character design is being handled by Tony and Enami Katsumi, art direction by Tokyo Genso, theme music by Youko Shimomura, and the theme song is “With You” by Claris.

Exstetra is currently 53 percent complete and will launch in Japan on October 17 for 6,279 yen at retail / 5,700 yen via download. Pre-orders include a mini soundtrack CD.

    This better be localized! There simply isn’t enough Tony Taka in the West…I’m counting you to realize my wish, XSEED!

      I blame SEGA for the lacking part, if only they’d localize those Shining games ;-; Either way, the game announcements just keep coming, this is fantastic. Also very nice to see more handheld developers on the multiplat route.

      • bloodiOS

        I know right? They keep releasing Shining titles that are exclusive to the PSP, and then simply don’t localize them.

        • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

          It’s pretty clear there is a disconnect between their Western and Eastern business. I know SEGA’s trying to gear up for the future but if I can’t get the content I want from them, then it feels futile. I would prefer if they’d look to the Atlus/Aksys/MarvelousUSA/NISA approach to handling their Japanese titles from now on, instead of having to go out of my way to show interest in Japanese titles (Hatsune Miku FB campaign).

      • LordKaiser

        How this is related to SEGA?

        • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

          Tony Taka does the art for the Shining games, SEGA won’t localize said games…pretty straight forward…Thankfully our fate for seeing this bit of Tony Taka work is not in SEGA’s hands, so let us pray to the Aksys,Nisa, MarvelousUSA gods.

          • LordKaiser

            That’s very bad because it will affect USA PSO2 as it already has many costumes of those Shining series.

            • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

              Hmmm…honestly I wouldn’t worry about that aspect LK. SEGA let UNLOCALIZED characters slide in on a cross-over game. It’s all fair play provided they put in the effort for the Vita build. I hope the guys in Vita’s 3rd Party relations crew are having serious talks with some of the big Japanese publishers, not getting PSO2 for Vita would just…ugh…let’s not kill E3 excitement.

          • Budgiecat

            The PSP is dead in the West. The only games getting localized at this point are extremely niche ones (Sweet Fuse, Hakuoki, that Sting RTS game etc). Vita needs a price drop in the U.S. and an increase in sales to appease publishers to localize their games.

            Remember, at one time, in the U.S. we got god awful rpgs like Dragoneer’s Aria and Blade Dancer because PSP was selling decently…

            • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

              Thanks to PSN though, I don’t see why a publisher should skip a (PSP) title. It can simply be played on Vita and the niche you’ve spoken about seems to give good word of mouth; thus long term money making potential. You’re right that Vita needs the price drop and a sales boost. That’d help a ton in the localization decision but I also feel like, one publisher needs to just “give it a go” first. Tecmo Koei seems to be that publisher so far but I think seeing Capcom and Namco Bandai try a little harder might convince more people but now we’re way off base. Let’s just hope Furyu can get this title localized.

  • Eclipse

    Nice, I can never get enough of Tony’s gorgeous art <3

  • http://twitter.com/Nates4Christ Nate

    Looks nice. I love the anime style.

  • dior

    Katsumi makes anything look good, might buy.

  • Raiyu

    Not really digging the art style. I’m glad its not another dungeon crawler, so I’ll keep my eyes on this.

  • Hatsuaki

    Nakamura Yuuichi, goddamn! Making me buy games again…

    • Mar Mar

      And Youko Shimomura is the same person behind Legend of Mana soundtrack :D

  • Hours Left

    Fill this with male Knights of Prisma and I’ll buy it.

  • tubers

    It’s not a first person dungeon crawler!?

    It’s a miracle! xD

  • Elvick

    I legitimately want to kiss every developer that makes multiplatform games on 3DS/Vita.

    • http://twitter.com/AuroraXIII AuroraXIII

      I prefer them exclusive. Else it’s impossible for me to choose which version to get.

      • Elvick

        I don’t.

        If it’s not localized. It’s on region free hardware (Vita).

        If it is, then we can pick what we prefer.


  • Derpazu

    Not getting localized anyway, so I’m not getting hype for this.

    • almostautumn

      “Dating sim? Kissing GIRLS? That’s sexist! Why? Because— because the girl didn’t have a choice; she’s ‘programmed’ to do that. It’s not culturally correct! ‘Merica! ‘Merica!”

      God I hate not knowing Japanese.

      • psycho_bandaid

        it seems there is a boy you can kiss as well. Which is honestly what I thought as soon as I read about the Prisma Knights. “Can you kiss a male knight to power him up?”

        Maybe they’ll brofist instead. At least do it afterwards.

    • bloodiOS

      It’s not Sega’s properties, so I would stay hopeful.

  • $30632660

    This sounds like Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Girls series, with the whole kissing aspect giving the girls powers.

    Thank god it isn’t another first person 2D Battle system

  • AnimusVox

    I read ‘aspiring idol’ as ‘aspiring idiot’ and I’m think ‘That’s not nice’
    And why is Selvaria in this game?

  • Warboss Aohd

    i kind o’ like da idea behind dis.

    Awakenin’ othas wit’ energy collected from defeated enemiez.

    ratha like da concept. Though admittedly da concept o’ usin’ a kiss ta do it iz kinda stupid.

  • Bobby Jennings

    Sounds awesome. Can’t wait for more information.

  • z_merquise

    Character design is being handled by Tony and Enami Katsumi

    Tony Taka?

    • Joshua ‘Near’ River’z

      Yes Tony Taka

  • Zimmer Remmiz

    Looks painfully generic…

  • new_tradition

    And then I spotted a male knight and my interest peaked oh so high <3

  • Duc PC-QB

    Judging from the screenshot, I think they developed the game first for 3DS then upscale it to Vita (like Conception II)

  • AdamBoy64

    Looks pretty promising.
    This is the game that would sell me a Vita, if it were ever localised.

  • Adol Christin

    The art is lovely but the in-game visuals are almost the same as Shining on the PSP.

  • Hikaru Lighthalzen

    tony taka and theme song by claris , this leave me no choice but to buy it

  • Gilgamesh2025

    My 3DS is ready for this!

  • Mando44646

    sounds cool. I just really hope the 3DS version doesnt hold back the Vita version

  • PrinceHeir

    the artist is Tony Taka is it?


  • Budgiecat

    Why do they have Japanese names but look like White people…

    • DyLaN

      lolololololololol *rolls eye move on*

  • Electric Escapade

    Can’t wait for this game! FuRyu seems to be bringing my childhood nostalgia back.
