While it’s not exactly the 14th of May in Japan yet, it happens to land on the day Japanese video game magazines publish weekly, and details are already available. This week’s issue of Famitsu magazine details Land of No Night, a new project by Atelier makers Gust. [Thanks, Game Jouhou]
Keisuke Kikuchi, known for his work in the Deception and Fatal Frame series, will be in charge of the upcoming action RPG for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita.
Land of No Night takes place on an island known as “Le Soir” (meaning “the evening” in French) and will tell the tale of the fate of two girls. Using magic swords and demon subordinates known as “Servan,” Land of No Night is described as an action RPG with a refreshing sense of cooperation.
The protagonist is a half-fairy girl named Arnath [アーナス] voiced by MAO, and a saint named Rulitis [リュリーティス] voiced by Hiromi Igarashi. Keep in mind that we aren’t certain of the official romanizations for either of those names, since Japanese developers have a tendency to pick odd names.
The general producer for Land of No Night is Tadanobu Inoue, who has been working at Gust after having worked at Falcom. Meanwhile, the development producer is Keisuke Kikuchi, and as previously mentioned, has worked on Deception and Fatal Frame titles.
Land of No Night will release in Japan on August 27, 2015 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita.
