There’s always a time and place for classic turn based RPG’s, and this title fills that spot that is heavily needed for the RPG genre. As of today for North America, “Ar nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star is now available for the PlayStation 3 console. In this title players will be taking on a sci-fi RPG that takes place within the ‘7 Dimension’ RPG series, a place where music and song can create a magic like no other. The game will be telling the story of a civilization that has lost their planet and travels through the space for 2000 years in search of a new place they can call home.
In Ar nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star, players will take on the role of two characters: Delta and Casty. Their adventure is one that sets them at a pace where they will try to protect humanity, save the world. On the opposite side you get Ion and Earthes, who will try to help find Ion a way back home to Earth. As players go through this campaign they will openly be able to switch between both storylines at any given time. These two storylines can be interchanged by switching out party members. Luckily for those who have not experienced the title, they will be able to solve the mysteries that lie within humanities hope.
“AR NOSURGE: ODE TO AN UNBORN STAR takes a step outside the existing concept of games, and I have no doubt that it is an RPG that will give players a surprising fresh look into the genre,” said Akira Tsuchiya, Ar nosurge Director at Gust Ltd. “To elaborate would spoil the story, so I hope people will play the game to personally experience this. I think that players will develop a strong connection to the world of Ar nosurge, and the characters will become as treasured as real-life friends. It really brings us much joy when our games are played by people around the world— so if there are players that are moved by AR NOSURGE: ODE TO AN UNBORN STAR, please spread the word and hopefully your friends will decide to experience its world for themselves as well!”
AR NOSURGE: ODE TO AN UNBORN STAR is developed by Gust and published in North America by Koei Tecmo America. AR NOSURGE: ODE TO AN UNBORN STAR is available for the PlayStation 3 in North America for $49.99 at participating retailers and through the PlayStation Store. This title has been rated T for Teen.
