Ar noSurge Almost Had An Enemy That Could Erase Your Save Data

Gust recently held an event where they talked about Ciel noSurge’s upcoming final chapter. Additionally, Famitsu reports that Gust shared some of the ideas that director Akira Tsuchiya had for their other game, Ar noSurge, but never made the cut.


According to the report, Tsuchiya had various off-the-wall ideas during the planning stage of the game. One of them involved “an enemy that could never be defeated,” unless you followed a specific rule.


One of the wackier ones was about “an enemy in the game’s world who is aware of our (the player’s) presence” and attacks players by deleting their save data.


While they had various similar ideas, they felt that some of them would have caused a riot amongst the fans, and decided to omit it out of concern. It makes you wonder what kind of game Ar noSurge would have been like, had they kept all their original ideas!
