There’s a new RPG on store shelves today in the form of CRYSTAR, the latest RPG effort from Spike Chunsoft. It’s out now in North America, and will release on PS4 in the UK and Europe on August 20th, 2019.
For those who’ve pre-ordered the Day 1 Edition, a lovely little mini-artbook is included with the game. For those who ordered the regular edition or will buy the game at a later day, you’re getting bugger all. Sorry.
If you already have the game but fancy a bit more of what’s good, the game has some costume DLC which is also out today in North America, and will also release on August 30th, 2019 in the UK and Europe.
I don’t really know a great deal about this game as it’s definitely not for me, hence the weirdo of our group Max Taylor reviewing this one. Expect to read his words before the European release date. For the time being, here’s the game’s key features which I’ve very lazily copy/pasted from the PR email. You’re welcome.
Fight through Your Tears in This Action RPG – Combat the Souls of the dead as you explore the afterworld of Purgatory. Play as four different characters and unlock their memories to learn the truth behind their stories and secrets.
Power through Grief – The battle system includes an otherworldly being who fights alongside you. Gather your grief and endure Torments to summon your Guardian!
Tears Give You Strength – Crying will help you take down monsters and empower your equipment. In CRYSTAR, tears aren’t a sign of weakness, but of strength.
