Record of Agarest War Director On Soul Breed System Inspiration



The most discussed feature in Record of Agarest War is the soul breed system, which lets players procreate the next protagonist. How did Compile Heart come up with this idea? We went to the game’s director.


“We had always wanted to create a game in which we can express passing of eras,” Sugano Kenta, Director of Record of Agarest War replied. “But, we figured it’d be more interesting to add a concept of generation changes where a main character has a child and the kid has his own child when he grows up and so forth, which has developed into the current Soul Breed System.”


Record of Agarest War spans five generations starting with Leonhardt and three dates female party members. During the story, there are conversation choices which affect how the girls feel about you. At the end of Leonhardt’s arc he picks one of the girls to marry and creates the next lead character.
