Alphadia Genesis | oprainfall

Being published by Natsume, Alphadia Genesis is an upcoming RPG for the Wii U. It is the sixth game in the Alphadia series and was originally released for mobile devices last year. It tells the story of Fray, a member of the local guild in the Kingdom of Archleign who has been invited to join the army. The story takes place 15 years after a terrible war where clones were used as weapons. The characters that have been revealed are (descriptions from press release):

Fray is a member of the local guild in the Kingdom of Archleign, and a skilled swordsman; though he’s been invited to join the national army, he prefers the freedom of working on his own schedule.  He has a younger sister, Aurra.  His primary element is Fire.

Aurra, an early addition to the party, is an Energi researcher and an expert on clones from the recent Energi Wars. She worries about her brother, and wants to name clones after food. Her primary element is Light.

Enah, a clone accidentally activated by Fray, is a Model 2000, and more stable than the Model 1000.  Wielding a deadly chakra, don’t get between her and her master!  Her primary element is Water.

Corone may look meek and demure, but her soft exterior and manners hide a core of steel! From the Kingdom of Augustine, she has been sent by her king to discover the mystery behind clones who have begun murdering their masters – but does she have an ulterior motive?  Her primary element is Light.

Walter is the other member of the Augustine Kingdom investigation squad. He looks down on guild members like Fray, believing anyone with real talent should join their nation’s army. He’s very hot tempered and will squabble frequently with other party members. His primary element is Water.

Not only that but a a sixth mystery party member has also been teased. Alphadia Genesis is set to release for the Wii U in North America in Fall of 2014, aside from that no specific date has been announced. What do you all you think of this? Will you be picking it up for your Wii U? Let us know in the comments.

    Need RPGs on the WiiU that aren’t just Virtual Console. I welcome this with open arms!

    Looks like it could be good! I hope so anyway. Never heard of it though.

    • It was something we announced right around E3, but with the busy busy busy both around the show and the debut of The Lost Valley, it got a little lost. We’ll be talking about it a LOT more going forward 🙂

      Haha I’m sure! Looking forward to it!

    Of the Alphadia series, the titles between II and Genesis are yet to be ported on iOS and Android.

    Maybe the “sixth mystery party member” is already shown in one of the screenshots.
