FuRyu announces action RPG Crystar for PS4

Gemdrops-developed title due out on October 18 in Japan.


The latest issue of V-Jump reveals Crystar, a new action RPG for PlayStation 4 from FuRyu featuring former Key scenario writer Naoki Hisaya at the helm of the story. It will launch on October 18 in Japan for 7,980 yen.

The game’s staff includes:

  • Scenario: Naoki Hisaya
  • Character Design: Riuichi
  • Character Design and Modeling Artist: ntny
  • Background Music: Sakuzyo
  • Theme Song: Nagi Yanagi
  • Opening Animation Production: Shaft
  • Development: Gemdrops

Characters include:

  • Rei Hatada (voiced by Reina Kondou)
  • Mirai Hatada (voiced by Sayaka Senbongi) – Rei’s younger sister.
  • Mephis (voiced by Shiori Izawa)
  • Pheles (voiced by Rika Tachibana)

Here is what we know about the story: Rei, who killed her little sister after being drawn into limbo, throws herself into battle against monsters as an agent of the devil. The girl who made a deal with the devil will reap souls using tears as her weapon.

The afterlife is your battlefield. The goal is to get to the lowest level of the world where the souls of the dead drift about. Shedding tears in this world purifies a soul’s “Danmatsuma,” or last moments. “Shisou,” or mental armor, is created through mental development. By defeating enemies, their Danmatsuma will cling to Rei. Danmatsuma are visual manifestations of Rei’s self-hatred and conflicts, which are the source of her Shisou.
