Following Gust’s announcement of Yoru no Nai Kuni, their new action RPG for the PS3, PS4, and PS Vita, 4Gamer has released a whole slew of in-game screenshots, concept art, and more information about the upcoming game.
The story starts with the tale of how mankind prevailed against a monster known as the Ruler of the Night. Before the monster fell, it scattered its tainted blood to sow the seeds of evil around it. Thus, all that came in contact with its cursed blood transformed into the Jayou, being that stole the night away from humans.
Now, people only come out during the day and have surrendered the night to the nefarious Jayou. Therefore, the land has been referred to as the “Land Without Night.”
Covered in the Ruler of the Night’s blood, a girl cursed with vampirism, a “Bloodsucker”, devotes her life to those living in the Land Without Night and battles for the chosen girl who was to become the night’s sacrifice.
The Land Without Night. A body of land that does not appear on any maps.
This is the story of a love between two girls scattered in the hidden crevasses of an untold history. A story of true love that is more tragic, and more beautiful, than the moon itself.
There are two female protagonists in the game: Arnas and Lyuritis. Arnas is a holy knight that came in contact with the blood of the Ruler of the Night. As a result, she became a vampire-like figure who is able to fight with a demonic blade forged from her blood. Lyuritis is one of Arnas’ close friends and she acts as the chosen saint who is in charge of sealing off the Ruler of the Night at the cost of her life.
Yoru no Nai Kuni will be released for the PS3, PS4, and PS Vita on August 27 in Japan.
