The next title from Time and Eternity and Last Ranker developer Imageepoch is Stella Glow for Nintendo 3DS, this week’s Famitsu reveals.
A simulation RPG, the game is the being made in celebration of the company’s 10th anniversary. It is set in a world of swords and magic, uses a quarter-view battle camera, and follows a story surrounding the use of “song magic” and “witches.”
Players must prevent the world from crystallization by the cursed song of Hilda (voiced by Yukari Tamura, top left of scan), the witch of destruction, and fight together with four witches and the knights.
Here’s the cast:
- Alto (voiced by Atsushi Abe, bottom left of scan) is the hero. He is a 17-year-old knight who’s lost his memory.
- Lisette (voiced by Yoshino Nanjo, middle of scan) is the witch of water and Alto’s childhood friend.
- Popo (voiced by Maaya Uchida, right of scan) is the feared witch of the wind. She lives in a cabin on the outskirts of town.
Each witch has her own song. By “tuning” the heart of a witch, you can obtain song magic that only witches can use. Tuning scenes are depicted as anime.
Battles are set on maps with high and low variations, with 3D characters able to move about the field.
Character design is being handled by Ideolo and Shakodo Shinjin. The game is being produced by Hideyuki Mizutani and directed by Dai Oba. Its music is being composed by Procyon Studio, Yasunori Mitsuda, and Shunsuke Tsuchiya.
A release date was not announced.
