Gust’s upcoming PlayStation Vita RPG takes a page from Radiant Historia. Famitsu explains, players can rewind time to different spots in the game and change how events unfold. You retain character levels and items when you skip around the game so it’s possible to defeat bosses that you couldn’t beat before. The game has branch points like a fire that burns down a forest village, which you can change by making different choices. Gust’s concept is to create a RPG that’s easy to get into and more replayable than other RPGs.
Chronos Materia’s characters like Iris and Thyme are drawn by Non, a Vocaloid Illustrator. Like most of Gust’s games, Chronos Materia has a synthesis system where you can create items. The game has monsters to fight of course, but details about the battle system haven’t been revealed.
Chronos Materia will come out on September 26 for PlayStation Vita.
