Ciel No Surge | Ciel

In answering a fan on Twitter recently, Koei Tecmo Europe has confirmed our worst fears. Ciel nosurge, the prequel to Ar nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star, will not be releasing in in the West. This is especially disappointing as Ar nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star, actually did release in the West.

Ciel nosurge is a life simulation game for PlayStation Vita that features Ionasal, who has lost her memories. It’s the player’s job to take care of her and help her repair them by scanning bar codes. There is of course the obligatory romance option as well, because Japan.

There were actually three versions of the game released in Japan. The original was released in 2012, and it only contained the the first episode of the game. Ciel nosurge Re:Incarnation was released in 2013. Re:Incarnation had the first five episodes. 2014 saw the release of Ciel nosurge Offline, which finally contained all of the game’s chapters. And now, it is confirmed that we here in America, and also those in Europe, won’t even get one.

Truly, today is a tragic day. I know I speak for all of here at Operation Rainfall when I say that we will all be in mourning for the foreseeable future.
