What to Expect?
This upcoming remake is getting reworked with Unreal Engine 4, which enhances its graphics and user interface, as well as its accessibility. In addition, this remake will feature dual story routes, renewed features, and new and returning characters.
Also, FuRyu granted one of the most requested features of the fans, which is the option for a female protagonist. FuRyu will add it in and she will be voiced by the famous Miyuki Sawashiro. In fact, she is the elder sister of Chiharu Sawashiro who is the voice actor for the original male protagonist.
Plus, an overdose of new features can be seen in this game. You can check out some of these new features in a description below, via NIS America.
New Party Members
Ayana Amamoto and Eiji Biwasaka are two new members of the Go-Home Club, a group dedicated to leaving Mobius and returning to reality. Ayana, a second-year student, detests men and cannot be near them. Eiji is a third-year upperclassman with a penchant for business.
New Ostinato Musicians
The Ostinato Musicians—μ’s composers—see Stork and Kuchinashi joining their ranks. Stork is an odd individual who loves peeping on women and has the power of mimicry. Kuchinashi is calm and doesn’t have much to say, relying instead on the gas mask-like device covering her mouth.
You can watch a trailer of it below.
Ayy the first trailer looked real nice, this just sold it for me. Excited for it

This game going to be impacted by Sony’s new censorship rules. Or will the release still be the original content uncensored? 🤔

Considering the concept writer (or writer in general, I dunno) was Satomi Tadashi… I'll buy it, I love his writing.
Thanks, NISA, I love you.

I already preordered the PS4 collectors edition off of the NISA official website! I’m looking forward to getting the PS4 version. Also maybe Furyuu will have you all localize Crystar as well.
