Today Compile Heart released an extensive gameplay video of its upcoming JRPG Arc of Alchemist.
The video showcases about seven minutes of gameplay and includes a lot of fighting and exploration. We also take a look at events, that can happen at certain points in the map, also triggering boss battles.
One of the most interesting aspects of this upcoming game is the fact that part of the artwork has been designed by the super-talented hand of fantasy master Yoshitaka Amano.His name will definitely sound familiar to fans of the Final Fantasy series.
Arc of Alchemist is a JRPG based on a completely new IP, and it includes some base building mechanics that are certainly rather original for Compile Heart.
The game will release in Japan on Feb. 7, 2019, following a delay that made it slide beyond its original 2018 window. A western release has already been announced for next summer. Yet, we don’t have a precise date just yet. Of course, as soon as Compile Heart (or likely Idea Factory International) announces it, you’ll hear it here on Twinfinite.
