Ar no Surge RPG Linked to Ar Tonelico With Shurelia's Return

posted on by Egan Loo
Director of March 6 PS3 game also worked on Gust's Ar Tonelico

Game developer Gust confirmed more ties between its upcoming PlayStation 3 role-playing game Ar no Surge ~Umareizuru Hoshi e Inoru Uta~ and its earlier Ar Tonelico RPGs. Ar no Surge director Akira Tsuchiya also worked on Ar Tonelico, and administrator Shurelia from the first Ar Tonelico PlayStation 2 game, 2006's Ar tonelico: Melody of Elemia (Aru toneriko: SEKAI NO OWARI de Utai Tsudzukeru Shōjo), will play a major role in Ar no Surge's story.

Ar no Surge will also have ties with the first Surge Concerto game, Ciel Nosurge ~Ushinawareta Hoshi e Sasagu Shi~. Akiko Shikata, Haruka Shimotsuki, Noriko Mitose, Yoshino Nanjō, and Origa are contributing music to the new game.

The Ar Tonelico game inspired the original video anime project of the same name. NIS America released the Ar Tonelico games in North America.

Gust will release Ar no Surge ~Umareizuru Hoshi e Inoru Shi~ in Japan on March 6. The 4Gamer website posted more screenshots of Shurelia, new characters, and the game's battle system.
