Spike Chunsoft has announced in a new press release that they’ve updated the website for their upcoming action RPG, CRYSTAR, to introduce readers to five new characters who will appear in the game: Rei Hatada, Mirai Hatada, Mephis, Pheles, and Anamnesis.
In CRYSTAR Rei and Mirai are dragged to Purgatory by Anamnesis. Anamnesis causes Rei, our protagonist, to kill her sister Mirai and she must venture through Purgatory for a chance to revive her. In the meantime Anamnesis has her motivations she’s working toward. You can read more about this as well as the other characters on the website.
Details on this title are bit scant for now, but I’m sure we’ll be able to update you further when the game gets a little closer to release, which will be on August 27th of this year. CRYSTAR will be available on PlayStation 4 and PC for $59.99 USD and can be pre-ordered now with an added bonus of some costume DLCs. Checkout the trailer and press release below:
