NIS America just hosted its 2019 press conference and they announced the western localization of The Alliance Alive HD Remastered for PS4, Switch, and PC.
The game will be released in the west in the fall of 2019.
If you’re unfamiliar with the title, it was announced for the Japanese market a few days ago, and it’s a remaster of the original The Alliance Alive which was one of the most recent JRPGs developed by Cattle Call.
You may know the team for its work on Dragon Quest IV, Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits, Arc the Lad: End of Darkness, Metal Max 3, 4, 2 ReLOADED, and Xeno and The Legend of Legacy.
In particular, the game’s scenario carries an illustrious name, as it was written by Yoshitaka Murayama, the creator of the Suikoden series.
Below you can read an official description directly from NIS America.
About the Story:
An age of darkness has befallen the world. The Dark Current, a cataclysmic event caused by the Daemons’ emergence, has decimated the population and divided the land into separate regions, leaving the survivors to be subjugated by Daemonic Overlords. To reclaim their home and free their people, an unlikely fellowship of heroes will band together to spark a fiery revolution. Explore various realms, gain new skills in the heat of battle, and form alliances to stand against the Daemons.
A Vivid World – Explore numerous themed realms using ships, animal mounts, and flying machines.
Forged in Battle – Ignite your determination to execute critical attacks and “awaken” new skills for your characters mid-battle.
Stand Together – Form alliances with various Guilds to bolster your strength, while gaining access to new vehicles, areas, magic, and more.
