Aksys is bringing Exist Archive: The Other Side of the Sky to PS4 and PSVita for NA on October 16, 2016.
Looking to escape the mundane tedium of your everyday grind? Feel like life is lacking in the fantastical, god-slaying, dungeon-exploring department? Fellow RPG fans and professional reality-escapists, rejoice! tri-Ace, architects of the JRPG series Star Ocean and Valkyrie Profile, celebrate 20 years of RPG mastery with Exist Archive: The Other Side of the Sky.
Exist Archive isn’t your standard RPG fare. You die right off the bat in a massive explosion. Boom! Gone. The end. Or is it? While you certainly aren’t explosion proof, your journey is certainly not over before it started. Instead, you awake in a surreal realm, unlike anything you’ve ever seen. Are you dead? Are you alive? Are you now an immortal being that wields the power of an evil god?
The short answers are “Yes,” “No,” and “Yes.” The explosion that ended your everyday life was triggered by the soul of an evil god named Yamatoga. You and 11 other people (who are also no longer living) are now immortal vessels for the soul of Yamatoga. As is to be expected when one becomes newly imbued with evil god powers, you and your comrades find yourselves mixed up in an ancient conflict involving a gaggle of gods and massive stakes.
Exist Archive features a robust story as well as loads of side quests that fans of the JRPG genre have no doubt come to expect. tri-Ace continues the tradition of side-view dungeons a la Valkyrie Profile. Combat consists of a strategic combo system where each character’s attack corresponds to a button, and executing bigger combos dishes significant punishment to any foes unfortunate to stand in your way. Mixing attacks and changing party formation alters your skill development as well.
Get ready to go out with a bang, RPG fans! Brandish godlike powers in intense combo based battles with unspeakable horrors and vicious bosses all while strategically developing skills.
Traverse sprawling 2D dungeons as you scour the realm for loot, monsters, and answers to your mysterious surroundings. Exclusive to PS4 and PS Vita, Exist Archive: The Other Side of the Sky looks to transport players to surreal landscapes and diabolic dungeons this Fall!
