KOEI TECMO RELEASES NEW VIDEO, SCREENS AND ILLUSTRATIONS FROM UPCOMING SCI-FI EPIC AR NOSURGE: ODE TO AN UNBORN STAR
Koei Tecmo Europe released today a new set of assets for upcoming sci-fi, ‘7 dimension’ RPG title Ar Nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star, which will be available from retailers across Europe on the 26th September 2014 for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.
The new assets explore the Ar nosurge battle system a little further, highlighting the power of Song Magic as the key to victory. With players always controlling the fighter in a 2-person team (the other being an AI controlled spellcaster), the main goal is to protect the song magic wielder while facing enemies. This way the heroine will have time to cast a powerful Song Magic spell to clear the upcoming waves of enemies. The system, as developer studio Gust commented, may look complex, but is actually quite straightforward. The main focus is placed on creating exhilarating battles in a challenging- yet easy to master- structure, so that once players are comfortable with the game, they can plan different strategies and come up with more efficient ways of defeating their enemies.
Additionally Koei Tecmo released a series of short videos showcasing various unique aspects of the game, including Genometrics (the system that allows the characters relationships to grow stronger Synthesis), Song Magic effects in battle, as well as the Purification Ceremony (that allows characters to increase their various skills and powers).
Ar Nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star is a Fantasy, Sci-fi, ‘7 Dimension’ RPG, that takes place in a world where music and song can create magic. It tells the compelling story of a civilisation that lost their planet and has been roaming the edge of space for 2000 years in search of a new home. The player follows two sets of characters: Delta and Casty, whose goal is to protect humanity and save the world, and Ion & Earthes. The player can interchange between both pairs and soon discover a way to combine their storylines and strengths to eventually solve the mystery that shrouds their ongoing struggle.
