Dragon Star Varnir Game's Battle System Trailer Reveals June Release in N. America, Europe

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Game launches on PS4 in N. America on June 11, in Europe on June 14

Idea Factory International began streaming a battle system trailer on Wednesday for Compile Heart's Dragon Star Varnir (Ryūsei no Varnir) PlayStation 4 game. The video reveals the game's North American release on June 11. The company will release the game in Europe on June 14.

Idea Factory International previously noted that it has modified two CG scenes for the Western release. The company describes the game:

In a world where the bones of an ancient beast tower over the land...
The Knight Zephy is part of an order whose role is to hunt down witches – people seen as cursed beings for giving birth to dragons.
When he is almost killed on one of these missions, two mysterious witches save him from the brink of death by feeding him dragon blood.
Granted new magic abilities by their efforts, he soon finds his fate intertwined with the witches and reluctantly joins them to fight against an Empire out to destroy his kind, ruthless dragon hunters, and a witch more powerful than any in existence.
Can they fight all this and save themselves, or will his new allies succumb to the dragon's curse…?

The game shipped in Japan on October 11.

The game has multiple character designers, who each designed a different character. Compile Heart president Norihisa Kochiwa is credited as the game's producer. Makoto Kitano (Moero Chronicle) directed the game. Falcom is credited for "dragon cooperation." Motoi Sakuraba (Tales of Zestiria, Valkyrie Profile, Star Ocean) composed the game's main theme and battle music. Toshiaki Takayama (Dragon Drive, Valkyria Revolution) is credited for "giant dragon design."
