Ciel no Surge, Gust’s upcoming PlayStation Vita game, has players watch over and interact with Ion. Your goal is to help restore Ion’s memories and your job begins at 7AM. That’s when Ion wakes up.
Ciel no Surge, sort of like Animal Crossing, has game events tied to the PlayStation Vita’s clock. You can synchronize her schedule with yours by tapping the screen when you wake up. This makes Ion get out of bed and cook breakfast. Ion spends her day and creating items while you work. Sometimes she will fail, but if Ion is successful you can go out (maybe during your lunch break?) with her. Players can also set a dinner date with her and Ion will wait for you.
While you’re spending time with Ion, you can ask fairies to repair ruins inside Ion’s mind. When they heal her you can see Ion’s memories.
Ciel no Surge comes out on April 26 in Japan. A limited edition Agent Pack include "classified" documents, an audio drama CD, a Vita decal, and the game for 7,140 yen ($88).
