Ar Nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star

Sci-Fi JRPG Coming To PlayStation 3

Koei Tecmo has announced plans to bring its sc-fi JRPG, Ar Nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star, to PlayStation 3 in North America.

The game, releasing September 23, follows the story of a civilization roaming space for 2000 years in search of new replacement home. The game's story follows two pairs of protagonists, Ion and Earthes and Delta and Casty, as players switch back and forth between the characters. It's a turn-based RPG with the option for players to synthesize their own items and use music and song to create magic.

You can check out some screens from the game in the gallery below. You can also check out the full press release announcing the game on page two.

  • How come JRPG's come to Playstaion and not Xbox :(
  • It's coming from Gust, the same company that does the Atelier series, so I'm skeptical since it has been a while since that series has been good. Still, I'm cautiously optimistic as I love a good sci-fi RPG.
  • Wow. Sold! But what a title. :)

  • If I had a PS3, I would definitely pick this up. Maybe they'll port this to the Vita. Then, I will pick it up.
  • I'll get this. I'm a sucker for JRPGs.

  • Is this a Ar Tonelico successor?

  • This game is also receiving an enhanced port for the vita. It'll be coming out later this year in Japan. Just in case anyone was wondering if the vita would get a version.
  • Man the PS3 truly is the JRPG machine, definitely want to pick this up.

  • This just became one of my most anticipated games of the year. Screens look gorgeous.

  • woohoo! another JRPG collection for my PS3!!

  • Well another JRPG to add to the list of pre-orders.

  • ............seriously, why do JRPG's always have such ridiculous names?

  • you had me at "Sci-Fi JRPG"

  • Now it's time to start bringing these games to the PS4!!

  • I bet Casty is the mage.

  • That combat system looks crazy.

  • That actually sounds pretty awesome.
