Developer Fahrenheit 213 has announced their side-scrolling roguelite RPG, Tsurugihime, for PC via Steam with a planned 2024 release.
Behind the mind of former Fate/Grand Order creative producer Yosuke Shiokawa, character designer Kuroboshi Kouhaku and composer Takeharu Ishimoto are also involved in the project. Kingdom Hearts and The World Ends with You fans will recognize the latter individual.
Further, Shiokawa was the concept director of Dissidia: Final Fantasy and the lead planner of Kingdom Hearts II’s Realtime Section: World Planning. Tsurugihime takes place over the course of 100 days with multiple endings and immense customization.
The wording of this title’s blurb is difficult to reiterate uniquely, so we’ve quoted it below:
「”Craft” the 100 days in this story where choice & decision is key!」The player can live however they want until the day of the last battle.
They can become stronger through repeated battles, or they can take on powerful enemies from the beginning.
They can even spend time in peace without fighting.
Find YOUR best way to live each day and “craft” your own path to victory.
「”Craft” battles with this 1000 weapons action game!」Attack, move, defend and many more actions by the protagonist are done through its weapon.
You start with one weapon. But through your days, you are able to use up to 1000 weapons.
It is up to the player to decide which weapon, learned or acquired, is used for which action.
“Craft” your own battles by mastering countless weapons in your own way.
Customization / Ikusei
「”Craft” even your sister with the bonding sisters ikusei system!」Battles are supported by the protagonist’s beloved sister, the only family.
Pure and innocent, she can be royal or rebellious, depending on how the player interacts with her.
She may become curious or a passionate scholar.
“Craft” even your sister, through the days you spend time together.
