From developer Artisan Studio comes Astria Ascending, a brand new RPG written by Kazushige Nojima.

Take on the role of one of the fateful eight, a group of eight demigods who must save the world from certain doom. Battle hundreds of monsters with strategic, turn-based combat across the beautiful world of Orcanon, richly detailed with fully drawn landscapes and 2D animation reminiscent of Vanillaware titles like Muramasa and Dragons Crown. Your team of demigods must sacrifice everything to save the world, the question now is how far will you go to do it.

Developed by a veteran team who has worked on the likes of Final Fantasy, Bravely Default, and Nier Automata, Astria Ascending hopes to be the next big RPG to make a name for itself. Astria Ascending is available for the PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One.
