One PS2 port and an original PSP/Xbox 360 title in the works.
10.30.09 - 9:24 PM

Alchemist has announced that it is working on two new adventure games. Suzunone Seven: Rebirth Knot is the PlayStation 2 version of a Clochette Soft-developed love adventure which was originally released for the PC platform earlier this year. Meanwhile, No Fight: Only the Power of Will is an original game jointly developed by Alchemist and Success for PlayStation Portable and Xbox 360.

Compared to the original PC version, Suzunone Seven will feature two new heroines. The game takes place in a world where the sole source of energy is magic. The Suzunone School of Magic is a renowned educational institution which was established with the aim of merging magic with natural sciences. However, even at this elite institution there are comparatively inept students. Every year, the school selects seven of those bad students and forces them to take part in a special training camp. If the students fail to pass this camp, they will be forced to leave the school for good. This training camp provides the setting for the game’s story. The game's protagonist Shiroto Yukimura is a capable student of magical engineering. However, poor Shiroto has had a falling out with the school's headmaster. The cast of heroines include Nino Nonomura who has no interest in magic whatsoever, Yuzuri Takatori, the daughter of a wealthy and magically gifted industrial family, Sumire Daikanyama who is the granddaughter of the school's headmaster, and the protagonist's former girlfriend Minato Mitsumine.

No Fight is a love adventure with a completely original scenario. The game will inherit the basic game play system from Success's love adventures Akai Ito and Aoi Shiro. The protagonist is an average high-school student by the name of Takaya Takayama. Takaya's story begins as Maybell, a female space alien, falls from the sky and eventually ends up living in his home. Despite her extraterrestrial origin, she looks quite human and hence attends the same high-school as Takaya disguised as a distant relative. Other heroines are Kisaki Hoshino, who is a childhood friend of Takaya, the smart and commanding Rise Shiina, and the beautiful Junko Tanaka.

No Fight: Only the Power of Will is set to go on sale in Japan on February 25th 2010. Suzunone Seven: Rebirth Knot will be available in March.
