Ar Tonelico Qoga Rebels In Europe In March

By Ishaan . November 17, 2010 . 11:37am

Yesterday, much to the joy of NIS America fans, Tecmo Koei announced a release date for Hyperdimension Neptunia in Europe — March 4th, 2011 — while, simultaneously, NISA told us North America could expect it a few weeks earlier.

 

Today, Tecmo Koei announced a date for another PlayStation 3 game that fans should appreciate: Ar tonelico Qoga: Knell of Ar Ciel. This one’s due out on March 25th, 2011 in Europe.

 

Like with Neptunia, online retailers have already cut price on these. Amazon.co.uk have priced it at £38.93 and Play.com have it for £39.99 (instead of £49.99) in the UK.

    Wow did they have some sort of huge hiring or something, or more focused attention to these games, they are all coming out in such close proximity to each other!

    I cant wait to play this game, I dont know of the previous two but I imagine they wouldnt make the game where new comers to the series cant jump in and have a good time. I cant wait to hear the US release date.

    • DanteJones

      That’s too bad, the first two games were really good with the exception of a couple weird localization issues but even those weren’t too big or anything.

      But yeah, super stoked for 3 coming out! >:D

    • Xeahnort

      February, I think. Bear in mind that NISA titles are usually released one month earlier in NA

      • http://twitter.com/Megawarrior345 Elle

        My heart can’t take this. This is too amazing. The draught of good/decent console JRPG’s is over…..hopefully. Bring them all here!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Alexander-Groce/100000039461956 Alexander Groce

    This game looks really good.

  • Xeahnort

    Too Many Games and Too Little Money

    • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

      Even if I had Enough Money for All Those Games, I would have Too Little Time.

      • http://thrust-the-sky.deviantart.com/ WildArms

        how can you have too little of something that doesnt exist?! DO YOU REALLY HAVE TOO LITTLE? OR HAVE TOO MANY? OR ARE YOU jUST TRAPPED IN THE WALLS THAT WE OURSELVES HAVE PUT AROUND US, THE WALLS CALLED “TIME”, IS THERE REALLY A TIME?! WILL IT ALWAYS GO ON?! IS IT REALLY MOVING OR WE ARE THE ONES MOVING??! WHY IT GOES SO FAST WHEN WE PLAY GAMES, BUT SO SLOW WHEN WE STUDY?! WHY?!?!?

        • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

          Ahhh I am confuse whats going

        • neocatzon

          even though TIME is not exist. LIFE and DEATH is real.Death is your limit to play games ;_;

  • kariohki

    Love how both of these games are coming out during my final project months for college ;A;

  • HarryHodd

    Yes! Day one! With Neptunia released in March i thought this was going to be pushed back to fall.

  • Neckbear

    Whoa! I thought Neptunia would be released like in September or something.

    This IS a great surprise! So, I’m SO gonna reserve money for these two titles. Ar Tonelico, at least, is Top Priority.

  • FlamingSausage

    It’s strange, back in the day games like these would take atleast a year to release here or would never arrive at all. Nice to see the old continent is finally treated atleast a bit more equally.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Homero-Alejandro-Santiago-Ruiz/843999460 Homero Alejandro Santiago Ruiz

    Omg , march will be a godd month, the problem is to have enough cash by that time D:

    • http://tristsantithesis.tumblr.com/ Tsunayoshi Sawada

      Heh, your name reminded me of Lady Gaga, heh

  • Barrit

    Wow, I can’t wait to play this, and sooner than I thought! I checked out some YouTube vids and the combat looks very well done and the music is amazing!

  • exhume

    Heckkkkk yes! And people say there are no jRPGs to look forward to this gen. Fools :D

    • http://tristsantithesis.tumblr.com/ Tsunayoshi Sawada

      Considering that the game released over a year ago in JPN…perhaps thats a dated statement to make. Plus there is the phenomenal and bounds to be groundbreaking and epic FF Versus XIII coming and Disgaea 4.

      • http://myfigurecollection.net/collection/ashgail Ashgail

        FF Versus XIII. I can only hope for it to be good.
        I’d love for it to be groundbreaking, but ‘hoping’ is the best situation to describe the feeling I have for the game

        • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

          Same feeling. Cautiously hopeful. We know too little about the game.

          • http://myfigurecollection.net/collection/ashgail Ashgail

            Here, have some screenshots and a 33 sec gameplay video. It’s becoming the Duke Nukem Forever of JRPG

            God, I -really- want the game to be good :( I mean, the character design was nice, and the trailer they fed made me very hopeful inside.

            Controlling multiple flying swords? Deflecting bullets with aura? I wanna do that!

            Don’t let your fanbase down with this one SE

          • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

            Don’t forget teleportation down the side of a gothic skyscraper to kill some armored doods!! Driving a car! Piloting an Airship!

            Seriously, I’d lose much of my hope for it if they showed just another teaser at the conference in January…

          • http://myfigurecollection.net/collection/ashgail Ashgail

            My heart.. It’s beating faster and faster!I better stop talking because this conversation left me hoping more and more out of a game we have little info on :(

            And no teaser trailer… .____. please?

      • exhume

        Indeed! But the best is yet to come for jRPGs this generation, in my opinion. Ar Tonelico 3, and the two games you mentioned, are really getting me excited.

    • JustaGenericUser

      I find that most people who say things like that also happen to hate anime and/or the anime art style.

      Those who can tolerate/like anime, however, have lots of japanese games to look forward to. Myself included. :)

  • http://myfigurecollection.net/collection/ashgail Ashgail

    YES YES YES!!!!! I’ve been waiting FOREVER for Ar Tonelico 3!!!!!!
    O(≧∇≦)O

    Oh my pretty wallet..

  • Ladius

    Damn, between Zill O’ll, Neptune and Tonelico 3 Koei will release three JRPGs in Europe in less than two months XD

    I will be glad to buy them all just to show them my appreciation :P

    • http://twitter.com/colonelxanders Alex Sargeant

      Yep! I have absolutely no problem with that in any way. Waiting a year for Tonelico 3 has been somewhat torturous.

      • HarryHodd

        I can’t wait for Trinity Zill, loved the demos. Also Ar tonalico! Oh and Neptunia. Great to be a PS3 owner!

    • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

      I had forgotten about Zill O’ll… Has there been a (non-Japanese) demo for it yet? Haven’t checked PSN lately.

  • nyoron

    Excellent, it seems this is coming a bit sooner than I thought.

    Still a shame about the title though, lol.

  • goronyan

    I have already accompanied most gameplay and story of Ar Tonelico 3 in a live playtrough and, As expected from past AT’s it have, good and funny story, dirty jokes, fanservice and great soundtrack.
    I can’t wait until march. I’ll buy it next month

    Still unknown North America release date.

  • http://twitter.com/#!/kaishou Kaishou

    Most likely get the game 3 days early. Shopto is simply one of the best online store to buy games from if you live in the UK. I won’t be getting neptunia till it goes down in price but I will definately get Ar Tonelico 3 at launch.

  • JustaGenericUser

    Woooo. But we still don’t know the North American release date! It’s me or less confirmed that the US will get Neptunia in late February, but what about Ar Tonelico Qoga?

    Looks like I’d better save money.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Kenay-Metcalfe/100000341878000 Kenay Metcalfe

    Damn I’m going to be flat broke in Quarter 1 of 2011. 3DS+Games, Neptunia, Tonelico, Mass Effect 2 PS3, God Eater, Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 Collectors Edition, Dragon Age 2 Signature Edition, Little Big Planet 2, DC Universe, Pokemon Black/White, Lord of Arcana, Knights Contract. Just an epic shit storm of gaming goodness early next year.

    Tecmo Koei has my love.
