Natsume, Inc.’s retro-style JRPG, “End of Serenity”, is set to release via the PlayStation Network for the Sony PSP next week, and today the publisher has released details about the characters that will be vital to the game’s story.
In the Kemco developed, 16-bit era inspired title “End of Serenity”, the world is home to mysterious objects known as “Atomigems”, and throughout history these objects have been used by people for a variety of reasons, from family heirlooms to objects of worship. Now, a gang known as the Underground has begun collecting any Atomigems that they can find and it will fall to the player to uncover the reason why.
Natsume has revealed details about five of the game’s characters, Yute, Eril, Kat, Earon and Kaede.
Yute is a tough young merchant who despite his young age has sharpened his sword skills throughout his travels. With a strong sense of right and wrong, Yute is unable to turn away when he witnesses injustice.
Eril is also known as the Azure Sorceress, and despite her cold attitude, she is desperately trying to save the small orphanage that she was raised in. Wielding an Atomigem-powered weapon known as an Accelerator, Eril is determined to expose the Underworld’s plans.
Kat is always sporting her jingling bells and cat-like ears, and although she insists that she is over 100 years old, she looks like a teenager. She will never truly be understood until she opens her heart and reveals her secret.
Earon is a snow white haired, undisputed master of martial arts. Although he was considering retirement, he discovers that one of his former pupils may be involved in the Underworld’s plans, so he sets out to uncover the truth.
Kaede is a pupil of Earon’s and she joins him on his journey. It is rumored that she may be the last member of a village of ninja, but only she knows the truth.
“End of Serenity” will be available for the PlayStation Portable, via the PlayStation Store, beginning on June 24, 2014. It will have a price tag of $14.99.
