KOEI TECMO DETAILS NIGHTS OF AZURE
KOEI TECMO America released new information and assets that highlight the protagonists of Nights of Azure, the brand new IP from GUST studios known in Japan as Yoru no Nai Kuni. Nights of Azure is currently in development for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and will release on March 29, 2016 across North America.
The game is set on the imaginary island-kingdom of Ruswal, where nights are plagued by Azure-blooded demons. Although it is dangerous for humans to leave their homes after dark, the brave knights known as the Curia are trained to fend off the ever growing threat.
Among them is Arnice, a warrior of great skill and the protagonist of Nights of Azure. While she’s skilled with a blade, her talents aren’t just a product of her training. Arnice has some demon blood herself and is actually the only human that has managed to touch azure blood and survive! This event hasn’t left her unscathed and its thrilling implications become apparent quite early on; among others, it allows her access to a set of impressive abilities including the power to summon monsters to her aid in battle.
KOEI TECMO also released images on the first of a row of very interesting supporting character: Lilysse. Lilysse is a chosen saint whose fate is inextricably intertwined with the outcome of the game, and Arnice’s best friend. Their friendship is one of the most vital storytelling elements of this title, and the ending of the game will be greatly affected by how players choose to incorporate it in key decisions.
