Most of the screenshots from Ciel no Surge show the communication portion where players talk to Ion and build a relationship with her. That’s half of the game.
Reminiscent of Ar tonelico, players will dive into Ion’s mind, which is a world of its own. As a symbol of Ion’s broken heart, the dream world is in ruins. Players will have to repair it with the help of a fairy to restore Ion’s memories. She can recall recipes to use in the real world while interacting with the player.
In the beginning of the game, Ion makes friends with three neighborhood kids – Tabo, Plum, and Cass.
Here’s the deluxe "agent pack" which includes the PlayStation Vita game and "secret" documents.
Gust will release free and paid downloadable content for Ciel no Surge. Clothes and extra scenarios will cost money while new motions and voices for the communication part will be free. Ciel no Surge comes out on April 26.
