November 15, 2009 Written by Cameron Teague


Record of Agarest War is another Compilation RPG out of Japan, featuring the work of Idea Factory, Red Entertainment and Compile Heart.  The game is set for release next year and publisher Aksys Games have released new details and screenshots.

Record of Agarest War is a strategy RPG that released on a retail disc in Japan but is being made as a PlayStation Network game for the west.  Agarest War sports more than 100 hours of gameplay during which you fight the forces of evil, pick your brides to be and extend your family across five generations.  The game presents yet another chance to blend the Role-Playing Genre with a dating sim.  You will actually have the ability to create a new character through a soul breeding system to continue your story.  With over a 100 hours of gameplay this promises to be the biggest PSN release to date.

Features list and screenshots are below…
