FuRyu Announces Action RPG ‘Crymachina’ for PS4, PS5 & Switch, Countdown Website; Crystar Sequel is Our Guess

Develpoer FuRyu has officially announced a brand new action RPG called Crymachina for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch. Unfortunately, further details are rather sparse, as no artwork, screenshots, or a release window was shared.

However, there is a teaser website counting down until March 1, 2023, at 7 PM PT/ 10 PM ET, with several vague quotes hinting toward this game’s premise. Each line is fully voiced as well. Every quote, answering the general inquiry of “What is human?”, is listed below:

  • Humans are stupid.
  • Humans should live in a cool way.
  • Family makes us human.
  • My big sister is human.
  • Humans are confidential.
  • Human means love.
  • Humans existed.
  • Humans created something beautiful.
  • He is a thinking reef.
  • Humans are, in essence, human.
  • Humans are… well, I’m miserable, anyway…
  • Humans never stop struggling.
  • Humans adored me-ow.
  • Humans? Who cares?

Interestingly, the viewable text on the website is both in English and Japanese.

There is also an official Twitter account that will post further updates. Considering the developer at the helm here and the naming convention, this game is likely connected to FuRyu’s action JRPG, Crystar. Still, we don’t know for certain. We’ll be sure to keep you all updated on this forthcoming news drop.

A trademark for “Crymachina” was filed late last year.

UPDATE 2/26/2023: The Crystar composer, Sakuzyo, is returning for the title. In addition, a new song was shared:

In case you missed it, Crystar was confirmed to have sold 140,000 units worldwide. A celebratory illustration was shared alongside a message from the director.

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.
