Anima Studio Project and BadLand Indie revealed Tuesday that their third person action RPG Anima: Gate of Memories will be released digitally sometime between April and June of this year. At some point this year the game will also be released to physical retailers.
Coming out for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, Anima: Gate of Memories focuses on combat and exploration. Players will experience a multifaceted story where their choices and actions directly impact the journey and decide the fate of the characters. As players travel through the tower of Arcane and the gorgeously animated world of Gaia they will endure battles with formidable opponents, each with its own special features and game play.
Anima: Gate of Memories follows The Bearer and Ergo, agents of an ancient society called Nathaniel which for centuries has protected mankind from the darkness. Both receive the order to recover an old artifact called The Byblos that has been stolen by a renegade of the order. After a long pursuit, crossing areas ravaged by war, they are able to corner the fugitive in the middle of an ancient construction. Suddenly, however, the entire area is swallowed by light. The game's protagonists awake inside a strange structure where they are no longer alone; strange beings have also been summoned there. Both soon will discover that something darker than they could imagine is about to begin, a war in the shadows in which they will have a leading role.
Based on the international "Anima Beyond Fantasy" RPG books, Anima: Gate of Memories is being developed by the same team who wrote them, Anima Project Studio. Following a successful Kickstarter campaign, Anima: Gate of Memories reached the top 10 games on Steam Greenlight within days and was greenlit after just one week.
