Watch Nora and the Time Studio’s Alchemical Opening Movie


Nora and the Time Studio: The Witch of the Foggy Forest is due out next week (July 21st), which means it’s opening movie time:



Producer, Shigeo Komori, was working on Nora and the Time Studio alongside Etrian Odyssey III. Developed in collaboration by Gust and Atlus, the game will have more of a Gust flair and Komori has stated it isn’t a dungeon crawler.


Unlike the Atelier games, synthesis in Nora and the Time Studio is done by speeding up or reversing time on different objects. New items can be created by speeding up time and adding components, or by reversing it and breaking an object down into its constituents.
