Import Spotlight: Exstetra


At Play-Asia.com we see new games come in everyday; many games unfortunately don't recieve the recognition they deserve. In this instance, we would like to introduce to you and import title worth mentioning:


PlayStation®Vita Nintendo 3DS™ [JRPG]

A young girl finds herself lost in a temporal wormhole and re-emerges in a place unknown; her dangerous new surroundings are familiar but torn asunder - her best guess is that this is her world though post apocalyptic glasses. Is she alone, or are there others like herself? Heavily detailed in the most recent Famitsu Magazine, Exstetra is an fantasy anime based traditional RPG with emphasis on love, survival, unspoken bonds and mystery. 

With an overall theme of "saving the world with a kiss," gameplay is based on an actual kiss ability which absorbs the powers of enemies to create Exstetra's version of special attacks: miracles. As well, kissing allows player characters to transfer power creating physical as well as emotional bonds. With respect to actual RPG battles, Exstetra is best described as turn based with a heavy inspiration from the Tales of series.

First announced in the Famitsu - May 2013 - Exstetra is a combined effort of many famous JRPG veterans. Developed by FuRyu, who created the fan favorite Unchained Blades and featuring artwork by Enami Katsumi of Star Ocean: The Last Hope and Tony Taka who helmed the Shining series, Exstetra definitely looks like a JRPG from a high pedigree. Musically, the OST is done by Yoko Shinomura - notable for his work in Kingdom Hearts and Radiant Historia - and the theme song will be produced by J-pop stars ClariS.  

Exstetra will be available for both the Vita and the 3DS on November 7th. Be prepared for a traditional JRPG developed with the highest caliber in mind!
