Tecmo Koei has announced it is bringing Ar nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star to PlayStation 3 in Europe on September 26.
A U.S. release has not yet been decided, according to Tecmo Koei Europe. As for the PS Vita version, the company says as it was recently announced, “it’s still an early stage,” but that it’ll do its best to bring it over.
The Gust-developed “fantasy, sci-fi, ‘7 Dimension’ RPG” is set in a world where music and song can create magic, and tells the story of a civilization that lost their planet and has been roaming the edge of space for 2,000 years in search of a new home.
Players will follow two sets of characters: Delta and Casty, tasked with protecting humanity and saving the world, as well as Ion & Earthes, who are trying to find Ion a way home to Earth. The player will be able to interchange between both pairs and combine their storylines to solve the mystery shrouding their struggle.
Here are a couple of character descriptions:
Quote: “It’s just a gut feeling… I just know it’s all going to work out.”
A young man who came from within the Barrier of Felion when it opened. He protected humans from attacks by the Sharl as a member of the Divine Empress’ PLASMA special forces team. He was part of the Genomis task force, which was assigned only to select members of PLASMA, but was discharged from the unit after a certain incident. He is currently running a small restaurant in Felion that he named ‘Cook de Delta’.
Quote: “Hey! Delta! How long are you gonna sleep?!”
A girl living in the human city of Felion. She is able to use Song Magic, an art that changes thoughts into magic. With this ability, she is currently an active member of the Divine Express’ PLASMA special forces team. She is also part of the Genomis task force, which was assigned only to select members of PLASMA, but she refuses to find a permanent partner for the required two-person squads, so she sees little deployment. She helps out in Delta’s restaurant on weekends. She is the self-proclaimed poster girl of the restaurant, whatever that means…
The turn-based RPG also features a detailed synthesis system and unique character development system focused on the bonds between the main characters. Additionally, characters fight together in pairs during battle. One is always on the defense, attacking enemies while protecting the other, while the other is weaving song magic.
