Koei Tecmo Bringing Ar nosurge Plus to Vita in EU July 1st

That’s right! Yet another beautiful looking, somewhat underrated JRPG is coming to Vita, and once more in a delightfully enhanced “plus” package. How do us Vita fans keep getting so lucky? Well, in the EU we have Koei Tecmo to thank — as they’re bringing Ar nosurge Plus over for a July 1st release date! Something to keep busy with over summer!


Ar nosurge is an excellent turn based JRPG developed by the masters over at Gust, known for their work on Atelier and Ar tonelico — both pretty high pedigrees!

Koei Tecmo Europe is delighted to announce the upcoming release of Ar nosurge Plus: Ode to an Unborn Star for the PlayStation® Vita! This turn-based ‘7 Dimension’ RPG is a remake of Ar nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star, updated with new costumes, new “purification” partners, and some DLC available in the previous version pre-loaded on this game!

Ar nosurge™ is a fantasy, sci-fi, ‘7 Dimension’ RPG that takes place in a world where music and song can create magic. It tells the compelling story of a civilization that lost their planet and has been roaming the edge of space for 2000 years in search of a new home. The player follows two sets of characters: Delta and Casty, whose goal is to protect humanity and save the world, and Ion and Earthes, who are trying to find Ion a way home to Earth. The player can change between both pairs and discover a way to combine their storylines and strengths to eventually solve the mystery that shrouds their on-going struggles.
