The official Japanese PR Twitter account for the FuRyu-developed action JRPG, Crystar, has announced that the game has sold over 140,000 units worldwide. Additionally, a new illustration depicting the protagonist, Rei Hatada, and party member Sen Megumiba was shared.

Moreover, the producer/director shared a new message to commemorate the title’s four-year anniversary, translated below via our team’s Ryuji:

“Hello everyone, I’m Hayashi Fuyuki, the producer of CRYSTAR.

Today, October 18, marks the 4th year anniversary since the release of CRYSTAR on PlayStation 4.

Thanks to your support, we just recently hit over 140,000 copies sold.
Such a number has exceeded our initial target by a wide margin.

We’ve also seen a several-fold increase compared to the first year of sales, and we feel that word of mouth among fans has been a strong driver for these increases.
Back in February of this year, we even released the Nintendo Switch version of CRYSTAR.

On behalf of the entire staff, I would like to thank you deeply.”

CRYSTAR 4周年

Crystar is an action RPG that has players assume the role of Rei Hatada, who is trying to revive her dead younger sister Mirai Hatada. Evidently, she makes a deal with the devil and must now fight the souls of those who have drifted into limbo.

The game revolves around the power of crying, which lends assistance to the characters and allows them to purify weapons and gain specific stat boosts. Enemies in the game will appear who must be defeated by crying and using the character’s lack of mental stability as a weapon. The Switch version will include all the DLC previously released.

Crystar is available now on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.
