Journey through a vast desert to save mankind.

Arc of Alchemist

Compile Heart has released a teaser trailer and opened the teaser website for Arc of Alchemist, its newly announced RPG for PlayStation 4.

Here is an overview of the game’s story, via this week’s issue of Weekly Famitsu:

Just under 100 years have passed since the founding of a small kingdom. Quinn, a young commander who belongs to its army, is chosen as the commander to lead the group who will investigate the “Desert of Beginnings” where a “great power” that can save humanity is said to lie dormant. However, the research groups of other countries eyeing the desert have either been annihilated or forced to withdraw. But even so, for the hopes of mankind and the sake of her friends, Quinn set off on her journey.

Arc of Alchemist is due out for PlayStation 4 on November 29 in Japan.
