Peter Payne, the name behind both J-List and JBox, recently tweeted that the fantastical RPG Aselia the Eternal -The Spirit of Eternity Sword- will be coming to Steam on April 29th. This title was originally released in the West on Nov 2011 through services like JAST USA in physical form for the PC. Now the biggest purveyor of digital games is getting a chance to share one of Xuse‘s biggest series with the rest of the world.

Aselia the Eternal

Aselia the Eternal is the prequel to Seinarukana -The Spirit of Eternity Sword 2- which was announced for Steam earlier this year. Both games feature protagonists sucked out of the real world into a harsh fantasy setting with the latter having Takamine Yuuto transported to the land of Phantasmagoria. He must team up with two native spirits to protect their realm and also to rescue the most important thing in Takamine’s life: his sister Kaori that has been with him ever since they were left as orphans during childhood.

The game features traditional RPG elements mixed in with a dating sim structure. The game features 50 hours of gameplay and multiple endings based on your choices of life and love found within. There are 21 playable characters with hundreds of different skills and the adventure will have three levels of difficulty to choose between. And while the game originally had sexual content, the Steam release will be an all ages version which is pretty standard for the platform.

Aselia the Eternal

While no price has been given for the digital copy of Aselia the Eternal on the ever-popular service, it’s likely going to be close to if not exactly the same as the $19.99 USD cost of the physical version. Seinarukana -The Spirit of Eternity Sword 2- also does not have a price and won’t be coming to Steam until September of this year. Stay tuned to oprainfall for more news of the Spirit of Eternity Sword series.
