We recently got a look at Ion and Cas from Ciel NoSurge, who’ll be joining the crew of Gust’s upcoming game, Ar NoSurge. This week’s issue of Dengeki magazine mentions new features, and also reveals that Jill and Sahri from Ciel NoSurge will also be in the game.
Dengeki didn’t reveal too much on what role Sahri and Jill will be taking in Ar NoSurge, or whether they’ll be playable; however, they also report that there will be a new character by the name of Plim.
Ar NoSurge introduces a “Purification” system, where the protagonist and heroine can enter a hot spring-like area to install crystals in their bodies to power up. These crystals can be installed into the character’s head, arms, legs, chest and stomach.
In case you’re wondering—yes, there will also be some exclusively skimpy outfits the characters will wear in the hot springs. It also appears that the Talk Matter conversation system from Ar tonelico will be in Ar NoSurge, as leveling it up will result in more in-depth conversations between the characters during the Purification scenes.
Ar NoSurge is slated for release on January 30, 2014, for PlayStation 3.
