posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
KOEI Tecmo's MCM London Comic Con booth revealed on Thursday that KOEI Tecmo is releasing Gust's Yoru no Nai Kuni role-playing game on April 1 in Europe under the title Nights of Azure. KOEI Tecmo did not reveal a North American release date, although the company previously announced a tentative North American release in early 2016.
In addition, the booth also revealed that KOEI Tecmo will release the PlayStation Vita version of Gust's Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky role-playing game in Europe on January 20. KOEI Tecmo did not reveal a North American release date.
In Nights of Azure, players 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), and her best friend, a saint named Rulitis (voiced by Hiromi Igarashi). Illustrator Yoshiku designed the characters for the "bishōjo selvan RPG." Tadanobu Inoue served as chief producer and Kikuchi (Fatal Frame series) served as development producer.
The game shipped in Japan on October 1.
Gust shipped Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky for PlayStation 3 in Japan in 2013. KOEI Tecmo released the game in North America in March 2014. The game's PS Vita version shipped in Japan on January 22. The original game received a 12-episode television anime adaptation, which premiered in April 2014. Sentai Filmworks released the series in North America on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on July 7.
Update: The PS Vita version of Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky shipped in Japan on January 22. Thanks, DavidShallcross.
