Stella Deus: The Gate of Eternity, developed by Atlus in Japan has gone into production for North American release by Altus U.S.A., Inc. Stella Deus is the story of a world ravaged by a strange mist and the people whom have given up hope of survival. The Imperial Legion is sent by Lord Dignus, self-appointed Overlord of Fortuna, to relieve the world of this "weakness".
"Stella Deus combines a compelling narrative with stunning hi-res graphics," said Akibo Shieh, Project Leader at Atlus. "The sub-genre of strategy RPGs has really come into its own in the past year and we are pleased to bring fans another high quality title that fans of the genre won’t want to miss."
Atlus would like to give their fans a chance to have a final say in this new release by giving them a chance to vote in a poll which would decide the final box art. To vote in this poll, Atlus urges fans to enter their forums and vote in the poll as soon as possible for one of the four possibilities. One must be a registered member of their forums to vote.
Stella Deus: The Gate of Eternity has a suggested retail price of $49.99 and has yet to be rated by the ESRB. At this time, Stella Deus is scheduled for Summer 2005 release.
