tri-Ace announces Heaven x Inferno for smartphones

Due out this summer in Japan.


The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu reveals Heaven x Inferno, a free-to-play action RPG with item micro-transactions developed by Star Ocean studio tri-Ace and published by NTT Docomo for iOS and Android. It is due out this summer in Japan.

The game is written by Baccano and Durarara‘s Ryogo Narita and composed by Yuzo Koshiro. It is set in a world where angels and demons lost their substance as the result of a thousand years war between gods and demons, leaving behind only humans. The world is divided into the heaven world Aura, the human world Terula Septum, and the hell world Gehenna.

Battles extend over three layers. You’ll spring up enemies to the upper layer (the heaven world) and knock down enemies to the lower layer (the hell world). The enemy’s strength changes depending on the layer, as do automatic effects, so there is a strategic element to battles.

tri-Ace is no stranger to free-to-play games. Its most recent outings include the now-gone PS Vita game Judas Code and the Konami-published Chronos Ring.

Thanks, Hachima Kikou.
