Set for 2021 release on PC and consoles.
Artisan Studios has unveiled Astria Ascending, a new Japanese-style RPG developed in collaboration with Final Fantasy 7 author Kazushige Nojima and FF12 composer Hitoshi Sakimoto.
Astria Ascending casts players as one of the eight demigods – guardians of Harmony who are accused of protecting Orcanon’s world from the mysterious noise.
There’s a lot more staging in the trailer below ̵
Kazushige Nojima and Hitoshi Sakimoto – who discuss the game in a separate video – are on board as screenwriter and composer, respectively, and further cement Astria Ascending’s connection to the 2015 iOS JRPG Zodiac: Orcanon Odyssey, which the couple also worked on.
Astria Ascending is scheduled to launch later this year and will be available on PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, Xbox Game Pass, Switch and Steam.
