posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website of for FuRyu Corporation's The Alliance Alive Nintendo 3DS game began streaming a new promotional video for the game last week. The video previews the game's different worlds, and shows elements and characters from each world.
The site is also streaming two gameplay videos. The first video shows the ornithopter mechanic, which allows players to reach places inaccessible by walking. The second video previews the game's command-based combat system.
The game will ship on June 22 after a delay. The game was originally slated for March 30.
The game is described as an "ensemble RPG" and a "simple RPG with multiple protagonists in a cruel world," with the tagline "Even if the world is ripped by dark chaos, the alliance between people is alive."
The story's nine protagonists include:
- Tiggy, the self-proclaimed genius professor
- Viviana, the noble daughter of a demon
- Ignace, Viviana's butler
- Galil, a boy from the resistance
- Ursula, Galil's childhood friend
- Rachel, a guild mercenary
- Barbarosa, a spirit warrior
- Gene, a well-versed practitioner
- Renzo, an information broker
The story is set in a land ruled by demons, divided by the effects of a "distortion." The story will feature many cruel "worlds," including the "World of Rain" and the "World of Fire." The World of Rain is a world that has long ago lost its blue sky due to an unceasing rain, and contains scattered settlements and ancient ruins. The World of Fire is a scorched land built atop a once active volcano, and is surrounded by a hard wall. The story will connect the tales of nine protagonists, and the game will switch between them as the story progresses to offer differing points of view and perspectives on the conflict.
Masataka Matsuura is directing and producing the game. Ryo Hirao is the character designer, Yoshitaka Murayama is writing the scenario, Kyoji Koizumi is in charge of game design, and Masashi Hamauzu is composing the music.
