Evolution Of Nora’s Timecraft Tool

By Spencer . June 24, 2011 . 12:55pm

Nora, the protagonist in Nora and the Time Studio: The Witch of the Foggy Forest, is gifted with time crafting powers. She can speed up time synthesize new items or reverse it to break objects into its components.


On the official Nora and the Time Studio blog, Atlus shared sketches of Nora’s timecraft tool. The idea was to have the device spin and it would rattle when it did.




The design evolved into this, which is most similar to the center draft.



And, here’s how Nora’s timecraft tool looks in game.

    Is wishing for this game to come out here too much ?
    Yeah I think it is :<

      It’s never too much to wish for anything. ;u;
      (Unless you’re using mermaid wishes…)

    I love those sketches. Well, I love the entire style of the game. And those are interesting concepts. I’m really looking forward to this.
    Even though I don’t mind importing in this case, I really hope Nora gets localized.

  • It kinda reminds me of that weird spinny thing in the menu screen of Tales of the Abyss.

    Cool designs, I wonder if it’ll show up every time you make something.

  • we will see that if this game will be a success in japan.but apparently just 1 look at this game and you can say it may get a localized version in the near future.hope for the best……..

  • they already posted 6 article about nora. this could be a good sign ’cause they’re putting effort on covering this upcoming games from AtlusXGUST Collaboration project.

  • seems the the title “time studio” isn’t just for show right………..

    is it just me or the battle system and the time thing just look like Radiant Historia ?
