At Microsoft’s ID @ Xbox Twitch Gaming Showcase Event, Artisan Studios unveiled their latest project: Astria Ascending. The Japanese-style role-playing game is slated for release this year for PC, Switch, PlayStation 5 & 4, Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One and in Xbox Game Pass. The game should do justice to the charm and demands of a classic JRPG and tell an adult story about fate, sacrifice and new beginnings.
“In a world threatened by chaos, players take control of the demigods – a motley crew of eight heroes who are entrusted with the fate of the world. Each character has its own story, spanning five cities, twenty-five dungeons and thirty hours of gameplay – fifty hours for 100% completion. In addition to the finely tuned, turn-based battles, players can try out a number of side quests and mini-games, including an original (…) token game “write the developers.

“In Astria Ascending we wanted to explore how people get along in extraordinary times”
says Julien Bourgeois, Game Director at Artisan Studio. “Each hero has their own perspective, but it’s the relationships they build with one another that really bring the story to life.”

The game was developed in collaboration with the publisher Dear Villagers. The soundtrack is by Hitoshi Sakimoto (Final Fantasy 12, Vagrant Story), the story by Kazushige Nojima (Final Fantasy 10, Final Fantasy 7 Remake) and the graphics by CyDesignation (Akihiko Yoshida and Hideo Minaba). Artisan Studios, founded in 2016 and based in Qu├ębec and southern France (Montpellier), were the developers of the Super Neptunia RPG. The studio specializes in 2D RPGs.
