Star Ocean Dev's Exist Archive Coming to PS4 and Vita in North America This Year
JRPG Exist Archive: The Other Side of the Sky features 2D dungeon crawling with a combo-based combat system.
Star Ocean developer Tri-Ace's 2D dungeon crawler Exist Archive: The Other Side of the Sky will make its way to North America this October. The game will be published by Aksys Games and will be available on the PlayStation 4 and Vita.
Aksys Games' sales and marketing manager Danny Miscevich announced the news on the PlayStation Blog, in which he detailed the game's premise. You're killed by an explosion, later awakening in a surreal world with "evil god powers." The story is described as "robust," but it also features side quests like any other JRPG.
The game is played in a side-scrolling view, and combat has you mastering a combo system--each button is assigned with a different attack. Executing long combos is key, and mixing up your attacks and party formation will change the way your skills develop.
Exist Archive: The Other Side of the Sky arrives on October 18 for PS4 and Vita.
In addition to Star Ocean, Tri-Ace is known as the developer of the Valkyrie Profile games. Square Enix recently announced a new game in that series. It will release in Japan in the next few months.
