PS4 Exclusive RPG Arc of Alchemist Gets New Screenshots, Event in Japan

Compile Heart published new screenshots for Arc of Alchemist, showing more environments and battles. The game will also get a hands-on event in Akihabara.

Today, Compile Heart published new screenshots for its PS4 exclusive action RPG Arc of Alchemist. Moreover, the game will be playable during an event on November 24th, at the Trader shop in Akihabara, starting 12:00 JST. People who try out the game at the event will receive an exclusive postcard you can see below after the screenshots.

Three new BGM samples were added on Arc of Alchemist‘s official site as well, including one that clearly seems to be a battle theme.

Arc of Alchemist is part of the “Galapagos RPG” brand of Compile Heart, which I’m honestly not a big fan of. Hopefully, this will turn out to be the Galapagos RPG which changes my opinion. The battle system, which was explained in a trailer and is based on elements and weaknesses, is promising too.

Arc of Alchemist was also announced in the west for “Summer 2019”, during Idea Factory International’s annual press event. The English version will feature both Japanese and English voice acting.

Two other Galapagos RPG already released in Japan, Death end re;Quest and Dragon Star Varnir, were announced by Idea Factory as well, though 2 CG scenes will be censored in the later.

Arc of Alchemist will release in Japan for PlayStation 4 on February 7th.
