Chronos Materia (Vita), a Gust-developed JRPG!

Postby Shizuka » Tue Jun 25, 2013 7:24 pm

Chronos Materia is an upcoming RPG for PlayStation Vita, Dengeki PlayStation reports. This game takes place in a world where human civilization no longer exist and follows the adventure of girls that were flown to the world.


Chronos Materia has character designs by Non (I believe they mean vocaloid illustrator Nozomi Ousaka) and is scheduled to come out on September 26.

Really interested in hearing more about this. I've been enjoying Gusts' games lately ^^

*Remembers that we might not even get it because we have to deal with TK
Oh yay :roll:
...Any chance that NISA lost the rights to just the Atelier series? No? ;_;

Oh, I dunno. They -might- let NISA have it, especially if we give a strong show of support. o wo Though, apparently NISA's about to announce some more stuff? So they might not be interested in pursuing new projects at the moment...

considering TK brought Ayesha, Totori+ and is bringing Meruru+? I'm sure they're going to announce Escha soon enough too.

Well for now, I'll just remain indifferent. TK is kinda unpredictable right now.

This, especially since they got a new marketing team ready. I can't say yes or no on a potential loc until I see more. I'm always down for more Vita games :)

The game is said to be a leisurely, light-hearted JRPG that attempts to approach replayability – a hardcore element of the RPG genre – with the sort of gentle pick-up-and-play nature of a social game. Gust believes that JRPG fans will find this approach to be quite refreshing.

Like with Gust’s other games, Chronos Materia features cute characters rendered in a style that fans have come to know and love. Vocaloid illustrator Non (who also goes by the psuedonym Nozomi Ousaka, ) did the character designs for this title.

Plot-wise, Chronos Materia tells the story of a group of girls who wind up finding themselves lost or trapped in a nature-filled world where mankind and civilisation does not exist.

Two of Chronos Materia’s gameplay systems – synthesis and time-rewinding – were detailed in the Dengeki PlayStation scoop.

The synthesis mechanic looks to be fairly similar to that in the Atelier games.

As for time-rewinding, this doesn’t appear to be a story plot point. Rather, it seems to purely be a play mechanic: the game will let you go back and revisit an earlier point in your playthrough, while allowing you to retain all the experience points and items you’ve accrued so far.

At various points throughout the game, there will be branching paths, and the time-rewarding element will let you go back to pick another option. For instance, maybe the choices you made through the game eventually led to a fire accident that razed a gigantic tree to the ground.

By turning back the hands of time, you could return to that point in the game, change fate – without losing all of your experience points and items – and save the tree, which leads to a whole different chain of events.

This system will also allow you to challenge and defeat previously unbeatable bosses, or restart the game from an early point with strong items.

Four leading characters from Chronos Materia were unveiled. Here are their names and respective voice actors:

Iris (left page): Yuuka Aisaka (relative newcomer, check out her voice samples here… she even does Engrish English!)
Primula (girl on right page): Yoshiko Ikuta (Yukina Kashiwagi in Penguindrum, a nurse in Persona 4 the Animation)
Time/Taimu (top on right page): Yuka Watanabe (another relative newcomer)
Sion/Cion (bottom on right page): Toshinari Fukamachi (Franken in Hidamari Sketch × Honeycomb; he’s also done a few games)
