Publisher Dear Villagers has introduced that it’ll be bringing Artisan Studios-developed JRPG Astria Ascending to the West in 2021. It’ll launch for the PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
Astria Ascending‘s score is composed by Hitoshi Sakimoto (Final Fantasy XII, Vagrant Story), and its narrative is penned by Kazushige Nojima (Final Fantasy X, Final Fantasy VII Remake). The game boasts art by CyDesignation (Akihiko Yoshida and Hideo Minaba).
“In Astria Ascending, we wanted to explore how people cope in extraordinary times,” said Artisan Studios’ Julien Bourgeois. “Each hero has their own perspective, but it’s the relationships they form with one another that truly brings the story to life.”
“Seeing this world come together has been a delight,” added Dear Villagers’ Guillamet Jamet. “And it’s an honor to have so many legends on the team helping out, like a childhood dream come true. Astria Ascending is more than an homage to the classics. It’s the perfect next step in our publishing line of ambitious JRPGs.”
An official overview is as follows:
In a world the place chaos looms, gamers take management of the Demigods—a motley crew of eight heroes charged with the destiny of the world. Each character has their very own story, explored throughout 5 cities, twenty-five dungeons and thirty hours of gameplay as much as fifty for 100 % of completion. Along with the finely tuned turn-based fight, gamers can check out a spread of aspect quests and mini-games, together with an unique fantasy-themed token sport.
