JRPG lovers rejoice! Koei Tecmo just announced that the lovely JRPG by Gust Ar Nosurge will be released in Europe in just a few months with the title “Ar Nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star“. To be more precise, it’ll hit the shelves on September 26th.
The game, which is fruit of a collaboration between the staff of the Ar Tonelico series and the folks behind Ciel Nosurge (hence the name) will come with voice acting in the usual European languages, but it’ll also include the original Japanese audio track.
Koei Tecmo also mentioned that a North American release has not been confirmed yet, and that the game will be launched both digitally and in brick and mortar stores. The PS Vita version has just been announced in Japan so it isn’t included for now, but the publisher promised to “do its best” about it.
Below you can see the localized box art, key art,the first batch of screenshots and a generous batch of artwork. We’ll keep you posted on any further news about a possible North American release, but luckily the PS3 is region free. I also added the original Japanese opening cutscene (which is absolutely fantastic), at a bonus.
Now, if I can be excused, I have a bottle of Champagne to uncork.
