Ar NoSurge Brings Song Magic And Talk Matters From Ar tonelico



Who knows if Gust will make a new Ar tonelico game, but Ar NoSurge is sort of like a cross between the Ciel noSurge and Gust’s RPG series. For example, Ar noSurge has Song Magic. Reminiscent of Ar tonelico, Ar NoSurge has a two person party where you protect the heroine while she chants Song Magic. Hitting enemies increases the Harmonics level and timing blocks reduces the amount of damage you take.

The story in Ar NoSurge unfolds from two perspectives. Players switch between scenarios with Delta & Cas or Ashes & Ion. The Talk Matter system from Ar tonelico Qoga returns too and you can unlock different conversations depending on your relationship level. These conversations take place at the hot springs where you strengthen characters with the purification system.
