Turn-Based JRPG Astria Ascending Arrives September 30th

Astria Ascending
 
Turn-based JRPG Astria Ascending will arrive on Sept. 30
 
Meet the motley crew of eight demigod heroes in the new character trailer
 
Developer Artisan Studios unveiled a new character trailer for their gorgeous hand-drawn JRPG Astria Ascending at today’s Nintendo Direct. They also unveiled the planned release date: the game will arrive on PC, Switch, PS5 and 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and Game Pass on Sept. 30, 2021.
 
 
As well as introducing each of the eight playable heroes - from stoic team leader Ulan to the elderly but cunning thief Arpajo - the character trailer also shows off some of the turn-based battle mechanics, such as using focus points to upgrade certain skills and the ability to target an enemy’s weakness. The ‘Fated Eight’ trailer also drops a hint about Astria Ascending’s unique job system, which will allow each hero to flex their individual skills.
 
An epic adventure with the charm and pedigree of a classic JRPG, Astria Ascending tells an expansive story of fate, sacrifice, and new beginnings. The game was developed in partnership with publisher Dear Villagers and boasts contributions from world-class JRPG developers, with a narrative written by Kazushige Nojima (Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy X, Final Fantasy VII Remake), score by Hitoshi Sakimoto (Final Fantasy XII, Vagrant Story), and art from CyDesignation (Akihiko Yoshida and Hideo Minaba).
 
Astria Ascending
 
In a world where chaos looms, players take control of the Demigods - a motley crew of eight heroes charged with the fate of the world. Each character has their own story explored across five cities, 25 dungeons, and 30 hours of gameplay (or up to 50 hours for players pursuing 100 percent completion). Along with the finely tuned turn-based combat, players can try out a range of side quests and mini-games, including an original fantasy-themed token game.
 
"The Demi-gods are at the very heart of Astria Ascending," said Game Director Julien Bourgeois. "Each has their own past, their own reasons to be there beyond wanting to save the world. It’s something we really dig into over the course of the story."

  • Unforgettable characters: Pick from eight customizable player characters spanning a range of fantastical races and skills,and assemble a diverse team of heroes.
  • Rewarding combat: Work together to save the world, waging strategic turn-based battles using the innovative focus point system. 
  • A treat for the ears: With music and SFX from composer Hitoshi Sakimoto (Final Fantasy XII, Valkyria Chronicles), Astria Ascending is a heart-swelling joy to listen to.
