“DARK NEW TITLE FROM GUST AND PRODUCER KEISUKE KIKUCHI IS COMING TO THE WEST!”
Koei Tecmo has announced that the new IP from GUST studios, Nights of Azure, will be making its way to the west. Released in Japan earlier this month on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and Vita, Nights of Azure, is to be exclusive to the PlayStation 4 in the west and is slated for release on 29th March in North American and 1st April in Europe.
Shaped under the keen, imaginative eye of Keisuke Kikuchi (Fatal Frame, Deception IV), Nights of Azure marks a new, darker, direction for GUST, while it maintains a lot of the gameplay elements dedicated fans of the studio love.
Originally released in Japan this fall under the title ‘Yorunonai Kuni’, Nights of Azure is a tragic epic tale of two friends tangled up in a web of fate and faced with impossible decisions that will test their loyalty to their quest and to each other to the limits.
Set on an uncharted imaginary island kingdom that floats in the North Sea, Nights of Azure paints a picture of a land where nights are tormented by azure-blooded demons. In this kingdom of Ruswal very few people have the strength and the skill to take on the monsters and walk around after the sun has set. One of the best among them is the protagonist, Arnice, a knight of great skill and power. Arnice is assisted by her friend and priestess Lilysse in a quest to rid the land of demons, but she soon finds out that the solution to the island’s problems might not be as simple as defeating enemies in battle.
