FuRyu has provided details of its upcoming RPG Crystar. You can read the entire list of details over at Gematsu, but here are a few of the beginning bullet points outlining the kind of action-RPG Crystar is.
■ Press Release Overview
The player controls a beautiful girl named Rei Hatada, who in order to “revive” her dead younger sister Mirai Hatada, makes a deal with the devil of the other world that is limbo. The story will progress as you fight the souls that drift about limbo. Also, by defeating specific enemies, “Danmatsuma Thoughts” will appear, which by “crying to purify” will develop the protagonist mentally. In accordance with that, you can obtain weapons called “Shisou,” or “Mental Armor.”
Additionally, players can summon Guardians that embody the ideologies of the characters to fight while unleashing powerful special techniques. As you progress through the story, you will be able to choose from four characters to use in battle, including Rei Hatada, and freely switch between them.
Furthermore, you can choose the Guardian’s automatic counter and guard, and even novice action game players can enjoy it with ease. It is also loaded with enemy information, a background music collection, combo system features, and more, including plenty of side elements.
