posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Gust's RPG starring M.A.O, Hiromi Igarashi ships in Japan on August 27

Game developer Gust (Atelier series) began streaming a promotional video on Friday for its Yoru no Nai Kuni (The Country Without a Night) role-playing video game for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita systems. The video introduces that game's world and characters.

Gust also began streaming an "image movie" on June 2 that also introduces the game's story and main characters:

Illustrator Yoshiku is designing the characters for the "bishōjo selvan RPG." Tadanobu Inoue is serving as chief producer and Keisuke Kikuchi (Fatal Frame series) is serving as development producer. In the game, players will summon "selvans" or subordinate demons to use in battle. The game's story revolves around the fate of two young women: a half-fairy named Arnas (voiced by M.A.O, pictured top in image below), and her best friend, a saint named Rulitis (voiced by Hiromi Igarashi, pictured bottom in image below).

The game will ship in Japan on August 27, and the regular edition for the PS4 and PS3 will cost 6,800 yen (about US$57), with a download version retailing for 6,000 yen (US$50). A premium box edition will retail for 9,800 yen (US$82) and include an official visual book, 2 original soundtrack CDs, a special Arnas 3D card, and an Arnas bath poster. A collection box edition will retail for 12,800 yen (US$104) and include the premium box's bonuses plus a set of three A3-size tapestries.

The PS Vita version will retail for 5,800 yen (US$48) and the download edition will retail for 5,143 yen (US$43). A premium box edition of the PS Vita version will retail for 8,800 yen (US$74) and bundle the same bonus items as the PS4 and PS3 versions. The PS Vita version of the collection box will cost 11,800 yen (US$96).
