Nosurge Remasters Coming to Switch
Koei Tecmo Games have announced remastered versions of Ciel Nosurge and Ar Nosurge for release in January on Switch, PS4, and Steam.
Ciel Nosurge was the first game developed by Gust after their merger with Koei Tecmo Games and originally released back in 2012 for PlayStation Vita. It takes place in the same universe as Gust’s other Ar tonelico series. The aim in this life-simulation game is to help Ion, a girl with amnesia, to regain her memories.
Ar Nosurge is a continuation of Ciel Nosurge, and is a prequel to the Ar tonelico trilogy. It originally released for PlayStation 3 in 2014, getting a Plus version release on Vita later that year. The game is an RPG, told through the viewpoints of the two character pairs: Cass and Delta, and Earthes and Ion.
Ciel Nosurge ～Ushinawareta Hoshi e Sasagu Uta～ DX and Ar Nosurge ～Umareizuru Hoshi e Inoru Uta～ DX both release on January 28, 2021, for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Steam. More information will be in Issue no. 1662 of Weekly Famitsu magazine (teaser scan here), available from this link.
