Koei Tecmo released the first assets of the remastered versions of the Surge Concerto series, Ciel Nosurge DX and Ar Nosurge DX.
We learn that they will be released in Japan for PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC (via Steam) on January 28, 2021.
Each game will cost 5,800 yen plus taxes. A series of special editions named Surge Concerto DX Agent Pack will also be released.
The Code: Silver version will cost 17,500 yen or 7,000 without the game. The Code: Gold version will cost 24,800 yen, while the “Code: Gold with 7DGate Connection Bundle” will cost a massive 98,900 yen. That’s $936.

If you’re unfamiliar with the original games, Ciel Nosurge was the first game created by Gust for PS Vita after the acquisition by Koei Tecmo. It’s a life simulator in which the player had to help a girl named Ion regain her memories.
The game shares the setting with the more well-known Ar Tonelico even if it’s not a direct sequel or prequel.
It was originally released in 2012 exclusively for the PS Vita.
Ar Nosurge continued the series in 2014 for PS3 and PS Vita, shifting the genre to JRPG.
Ar Nosurge was actually localized in English between 2014 and 2015, while Ciel Nosurge never landed on the western market. At the moment, we don’t know whether the DX remasters will be localized.
