Exstetra to hit 3DS and Vita in Japan this fall

New, 2 comments

Japanese game publisher FuRyu revealed their latest project, Exstetra, in this week's issue of Famitsu magazine. A traditional RPG with a graphic style straight out of Namco's Tales series, the game is due out for the Nintendo 3DS and PS Vita later this fall in Japan.

With few gameplay details revealed at the moment (other than the fact it'll use a turn-based battle system), Exstetra is most notable as of right now for the people working on it. Tony Taka, who worked extensively on Sega's Shining series, is handling character designs for this game, and Yoko Shimomura, who scored Kingdom Hearts, Radiant Historia and much more, is providing the music.

The story, in classic Tales fashion, is also a mishmash of fantasy themes. It's set in Ameijia, an otherworldly land that's somehow been "fused" with modern-day Tokyo. A group of (mostly female, it seems) knights called Prisma have been tasked to save this realm.

Exstetra is due out Oct. 17 for 6,279 yen in retail or 5,700 yen in downloadable form.
