Compile Heart began streaming a new nine-minute gameplay video on Friday for its Arc of Alchemist PlayStation 4 role-playing game. The video features a digital narrator.

The channel streamed a previous gameplay video on January 10.

The game will ship in Japan on February 7 after a delay from a previously announced date of November 29. Idea Factory International will release the game physically and digitally in North America and Europe this summer.

Idea Factory International describes the game:

Enter the desert in search of the key to save humanity – the Great Power. Quinn Bravesford, for the sake of her kingdom, leads her soldiers into battle against a swath of enemy nations. One year, the king declared that he would send a large-scale investigation team to the Desert of Beginnings.​​

And so, Quinn was selected to captain this mission. Quinn gazes at the ancient alchemic device, the Lunagear, within her hand. According to the legends of yore, once the Lunagear is equipped with the four Orbs, it will unlock the Great Power that will save humanity. Only one Orb resides in Quinn's Lunagear. Collecting the four Orbs for the Lunagear, however, is a mere legend. ​​

With the threat of dangerous creatures and Machine Dolls wandering the desert, one of the enemy nations, the Principality of Neuhaven, has dispatched their military in search of the Great Power. Now, Quinn and her band of allies must fight against the Principality of Neuhaven in hopes to find the Great Power and save humanity. Quinn steels herself, but even so, she can't help but doubt the existence of the Great Power…​

Illustrator Yoshitaka Amano (Final Fantasy, Vampire Hunter D) is serving as the game's concept artist, Kyoji Koizumi (The Alliance Alive, SaGa series) is designing the game's system, Yukinori Kitajima (Senran Kagura, Hamatora) is writing the scenario, and Mota is designing the characters.
