Exist Archive Promo Movie

Spike Chunsoft has released a new trailer for tri-Ace’s upcoming PS4 and Vita RPG Exist Archive: The Other Side of the Sky. See it above, kinda light on content for all its length. They do a lot of that sliding artwork and words on the screen trick. Short gameplay clips start later in the video.

Gameplay is similar to that of another tri-Ace RPG, Valkyrie Profile for the PSOne (later given enhanced port treatment on PSP), with each character mapped to a face button during combat. It includes some floaty 2D platforming as well.

We spoke briefly about it in our post-TGS podcast — first game we discussed, actually.

Exist Archive is set to hit Japanese shelves on Dec. 17. It’s not confirmed for international release, but import game site Play-Asia is taking JP version pre-orders here.
