Nights Of Azure AKA Yoru No Nai Kuni Releases Today!

PlayStation®4 [Action RPG] Release: March 29th

As the final release for this month's gamut of stellar releases, having the localized version of Koei Tecmo's well received yuri-centric action RPG ship out is the icing on the cake. Developed by Gust, Nights of Azure is a wonderful game featuring combo heavy anime stylized combat, an interesting summoning mechanic, and a tragic love story between two women, and the sacrifices they must both make.

The game's battle system has Arnice, the main character, executing chains of light, heavy, and special attacks, with the goal of building up a transformation gauge - it is then when Arnice gains the most battle prowess, as different forms release exact forms of combat styles, ranging from speed, defense, offense, ranged, and more. Each transformation is bolstered with dramatic flair, as anime transformations usually do.

This combined with many different weapons with individual move sets keep the battle fresh, and GUST does a good job at making the controls fluid, especially for such reactive gameplay. Players will also be fighting alongside summoned demons known as the Servan; as attack and support, they become stronger over each successive battle, and it's up to the player to train them for the best possible output.

Following the journey of two girls in the uncharted land Rusewall Island, a place where no one sleeps at night, Nights Of Azure focuses on Arnice, a hybrid human demon knight and her quest to protect Lilysse, a pure maiden saint who holds the key in changing the world for many tired souls. Throughout their journey however, an impossible love blossoms between them; this is a fresh departure from usual JRPG fare and a main highlight of Nights Of Azure.

With the US version releasing today, and the EU version tomorrow, if anime, story, action, and a lot of customizations are your thing, then this is definitely a title you'd might want to check out!
Nights of Azure (PlayStation 4™, US) US$ 22.99 24h
