One of the latest JRPGs slated to hit the West is Exist Archive: The Other Side Of The Sky. Publisher Aksys Games and developer Tri-Ace announced that the side-view RPG will be available for both the PS4 and PS Vita as a digital and physical release later this year.
Taking to the PlayStation.blog, Danny Miscevich announced that the RPG game is set to hit the Western shores on October 18th, and that will start players off dying to an explosion. Yes, I know, it sounds a bit weird but once you are dead in the game, you and 11 other party members will have to go on a journey to break free from an evil god named Yamatoga.
Though the game is strange in its start, the 2D environment along with the unique locations will seemingly tie everything together once the world of Exist Archive starts to unfold. While in the surreal world, you will assume a character that becomes an immortal vessel for the soul of Yamatoga.
Adding a gripping sequence throughout the story, players will be able to hone special abilities that were imbued upon them, but will find that these powers will be the only thing to solve the mix up between an ancient conflict between the gods.
Looking over to the traversing spectrum of Exist Archive, there will be a lot of dungeons, realm searching and loot to seek after. This will be joined by answers to the mysterious surroundings and monsters that lurk and await your existence.
Speaking of monsters, the combat will rely on a strategic combo system where a given character will react or correspond to a button input. This will allow folks to execute devastating combos that deal more damage to enemies depending on the button combination.
“Game will be released physically and digitally here in North America. We’re still ironing out details for an EU release, but it will make it to the EU in one form or another. So have hope!”
The game is out now over in Japan, which launched on December 17th, 2015. As for the Western release, the game will ship out both digitally and physically on October 18th, for both PS4 and PS Vita. For more information on Exist Archive, you can hit up the PlayStation.blog.
