40 seconds of footage.

Arc of Alchemist

Compile Heart has shared two short gameplay videos of Arc of Alchemist on Twitter.

By equipping a staff or book, you can play the role of support for your party. Since instructing your AI-controlled companions is essential, this is a great way to fight for advanced players.

Players might also run into groups of heavy machine monsters. Whether you fight them head-on with powerful equipment, lure them in one at a time, or use your party members as a decoy, there are various strategies to tackle such fights.

Arc of Alchemist is due out for PlayStation 4 on February 7, 2019 in Japan, and summer 2019 in North America and Europe.
