Tribute to JRPG classics coming later this year after successful Kickstarter.
Midgar Studio and Playdius, publishing branch of Plug In Digital have announced that JRPG adventure Edge of Eternity will enter Early Access later this year. Following a successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, Edge of Eternity still stands as one of the most anticipated titles within JRPG communities. Following months of intense development work, Midgar Studio’s team of nine is ready to welcome fans to explore the vast world of Heryon, the fantasy planet setting where the adventure takes place.
Jeremy Zeler, Head of Midgar Studio said:
“Edge of Eternity is a labour of love designed as a tribute to JRPG classics. But building this ambitious JRPG has been a long journey. We still have a lot we want to deliver to make Edge of Eternity everything we want it to be. That’s why we decided to move forward with an Early Access launch.”
The game features:
- An Enthralling JRPG Adventure: A unique, riveting story with numerous plot twists and heart-wrenching moments, supported by an epic soundtrack featuring industry legend Yasunori Mitsuda.
- A Gorgeous World: Discover an alien world and its unique environments, unearth the most ancient secrets of the world of Heryon. Solve quests in multiple ways, make your own choices, and face their consequences
- A Deep & Strategic Combat System: Outwit your enemies in epic tactical combats, use the environment to lure your enemies into devious traps, outsmart and outflank them to inflict massive damage! Craft your gear and inset it with powerful crystal to unlock unique combinations of skills and power-ups.
- A Cast of Charismatic Characters: Meet a cast of larger-than-life companions, each with their own set of attributes, watch them grow and evolve throughout the story, as you live through it yourself. Discover their dreams, their flaws, their hopes and their torments as you share many special moments with them.
Following a successful campaign, where more than 400 backers pledged over $160,000 (with an original goal of $44,000), Kickstarter backers can look forward to beginning their adventure on Heryon ahead of the upcoming Edge Of Eternity Steam Early Access launch and can expect to receive an invite to join a private beta server this September.
