Natsume are publishing one of Kemco’s RPGs, Alphadia Genesis for the Wii U, in North America. This morning, they shared profiles for some of the game’s characters, and also touched upon its story. Let’s start with that:
Alphadia Year 1092: Fifteen years have passed since the end of the terrible Energi Wars, where clones were used as weapons. Two kingdoms, after nearly destroying each other and the natural resources of Energi, signed an important peace treaty, and have been co-operative neighbors ever since: Augustine and Archleign, where the story of Alphadia Genesis begins.
And now, on to the cast of characters you’ll find in the game:
Fray is a member of the local guild in the Kingdom of Archleign, and a skilled swordsman; though he’s been invited to join the national army, he prefers the freedom of working on his own schedule. He has a younger sister, Aurra. His primary element is Fire.
Aurra, an early addition to the party, is an Energi researcher and an expert on clones from the recent Energi Wars. She worries about her brother, and wants to name clones after food. Her primary element is Light.
Enah, a clone accidentally activated by Fray, is a Model 2000, and more stable than the Model 1000. Wielding a deadly chakra, don’t get between her and her master! Her primary element is Water.
Corone may look meek and demure, but her soft exterior and manners hide a core of steel! From the Kingdom of Augustine, she has been sent by her king to discover the mystery behind clones who have begun murdering their masters – but does she have an ulterior motive? Her primary element is Light.
Walter is the other member of the Augustine Kingdom investigation squad. He looks down on guild members like Fray, believing anyone with real talent should join their nation’s army. He’s very hot tempered and will squabble frequently with other party members. His primary element is Water.
“We have been waiting for an opportunity to launch a Wii U title since the system’s release in late 2012,” said Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO at Natsume. “Alphadia Genesis provided us with a fantastic opportunity to bring our fans an RPG we’re sure they’re going to love!”
Alphadia Genesis will be released on Wii U in North America this Fall.
