Atelier studio’s new JRPG looks dark and wonderful

Introducing Yoru no Nai Kuni

Koei Tecmo subsidiary Gust is best known for its work on Atelier, a series of role-playing games with an express focus on alchemy and crafting, but the studio’s latest creation appears to be something else entirely.

It’s called Yoru no Nai Kuni (Country Without Night) and is a gloomy demon-slaying affair helmed by Keisuke Kikuchi, whose previous work includes DeceptionFatal Frame, and Trapt. It’s currently in development for PlayStation 4,  PS Vita, and PS3, and is slated for a Japanese debut on August 27.

There’s no word regarding a potential western release at this time, but most of Gust’s recent projects have received localizations, so things are looking up on that front.
