XBlaze Lost: Memories Visual Novel Heads West This Summer
posted on by Egan Loo
Aksys Games announced on Friday that it will release XBlaze Lost: Memories, the sequel to Arc System Works' XBlaze Code: Embryo visual novel, on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita this summer.
Aksys describes the story of the "blue memories adventure" game:
Play as the enigmatic pink-haired protagonist as she navigates through a weird and wondrous alternate reality with the help of the mysterious Nobody in order to save her sister, who disappeared into this unknown world! While there she is tasked with finding "Memory Fragments", crystallized memories that not only serve as keys that will help her move on and find her sister, but also uncover the identity and story of the person those memories belong to!
Aksys notes that the sequel includes a comprehensive overview of the important events of XBlaze Code: Embryo, so players will not need to play the earlier game first. The sequel combines "2D dungeon exploration with traditional visual novel game" and features both pixelated "chibi" character sprites and regular visual novel designs.
