Aselia The Eternal Announced For North AmericaCourtesy of Jast USA and Xuse.02.06.11 - 7:57 PM
Last week JAST USA announced that they will be localizing their first non-eroge title, Xuse's Aselia the Eternal
. The visual novel/RPG hybrid for the PC follows Takamine Yuuto, an orphan who has to take care of his stepsister Kaori. Suddenly they are forced to travel to a dimension called Phantasmagoria, where Kaori becomes kidnapped. To save her, Yuuta becomes an Etranger, or 'warrior of power,' taking up arms, and getting caught in this new world's conflict, fighting alongside the female Spirits. Incidentally, he'll also be able to form romantic relationships with some of these Spirits.
JAST, who is working closely with Xuse to ensure an accurate translation, has not yet set a release date for Aselia the Eternal - but it's already got an MSRP of $29.95 US. So for now, we'll just leave you with a short Japanese PV for the game:
