Chronos Materia. That’s the name of a brand new PS Vita JRPG that Atelier series developer Gust is working on next, the games maker announced this week through the pages of Dengeki PlayStation magazine.
The game is said to be a leisurely, light-hearted JRPG that attempts to approach replayability – a hardcore element of the RPG genre – with the sort of gentle pick-up-and-play nature of a social game. Gust believes that JRPG fans will find this approach to be quite refreshing.
Like with Gust’s other games, Chronos Materia features cute characters rendered in a style that fans have come to know and love. Vocaloid illustrator Non (who also goes by the psuedonym Nozomi Ousaka, and involved in the animation work for Love, Chuunibyou & Other Delusions) did the character designs for this title.
