The remasters Ciel nosurge DX and Ar no surge DX were first announced in June 2020. Ciel nosurge launched exclusively in Japan on April 26, 2012 on PlayStation Vita. The JRPG by Gust is about repairing the memories of mysterious amnesic girl Ion. The game required an online connection at all times, to illustrate players connecting with Ion from another world. A final version with all DLC, bonus content and playable offline, Ciel nosurge Offline, was released in Japan on October 3, 2014, on PS Vita. Ciel nosurge DX is based on this version.

Ar nosurge is Ciel nosurge‘s sequel, first launched on PS3 on March 6, 2014. Ar nosurge Plus, a different version, launched on October 2, 2014 on PS Vita, and Ar nosurge DX will be based on this version.
