During the ID@Xbox Twitch gaming showcase, Artisan Studios revealed the trailer for their newest project: the hand-drawn JRPG Astria Ascending.
Astria Ascending was developed in partnership with publisher Dear Villagers and features contributions from JRPG developers, with a score by Hitoshi Sakimoto (Final Fantasy 12, Vagrant Story), narrative by Kazushige Nojima (Final Fantasy 10, Final Fantasy 7 Remake), and art from CyDesignation (Akihiko Yoshida and Hideo Minaba).
The game is set in a world where chaos looms, and finds you taking control of the Demigods. This crew of eight heroes is charged with the fate of the world. Each character has their own story, explored across five cities, 25 dungeons, and 30 to 50 hours of gameplay.
