Today Idea Factory International released a new trailer of the upcoming JRPG Dragon Star Varnir.
If you’re unfamiliar with the title, you might know it with its Japanese title Varnir of the Dragon Star. It was released locally by Compile Heart back in October 2018.
You can check out an official description below.
“In a world where the bones of an ancient beast tower over the land…
Zephy, a young warrior, is part of a respected group whose role is to hunt and kill witches – a group of people cursed with the affliction of giving birth to dragons. When he is almost killed on one of these hunting missions, two mysterious witches save him from the brink of death by feeding him the blood of a dragon.
Granted new magic abilities thanks to their efforts, he soon finds his fate intertwined with that of the witches and reluctantly joins them to fight against the Empire he once served, vicious dragon hunters, and a witch more powerful than any in existence.
Can they fight against all of this and save themselves, or will his new allies succumb to the dragon’s curse?”
You can watch the trailer below.
Dragon Star Varnir will release in the west exclusively for PS4 (at least for now) in summer 2019, which is a bit later than the previously announced spring release window.
If you’re interested in more Compile Heart JRPGs, Idea Factory international just announced Death End re;Quest for PC yesterday. It’ll be interesting to see if Dragon Star Varnir will go the same route at some point.
