Next year NIS America is releasing Ar Tonelico: Melody of Elemia. Ar Tonelico is an RPG with some unique elements like “Reyvateil” songs that can attack or heal. There’s also a dive system where you jump into a character to get to know them on a deeper level. It was one of the games I was looking forward to playing this year, but NIS America delayed it to spend more time localizing it. The final North American release comes with an extra bonus, a premium box release with a 52 page hardcover art book. The release also has new cover art, pictured on the left, and the original Japanese box art is on the right.
