Compile Heart Announces Arc of Alchemist
Japanese developer Compile Heart has announced Arc of Alchemist, a new title in development for PlayStation 4. The game, which is set to be released on November 29, 2018, sees the developer team up again with Yoshitaka Amano for its concept art after he previously contributed to 2013 title Fairy Fencer F.
Arc of Alchemist is set on a desert world and utilises a strategic action-based combat system. The story takes place a hundred years after the founding of a small kingdom and follows Quinn Blazeford, the newly-assigned commander to a group of soldiers sent into the Desert of Beginning to search for a power said to lie within that will save humanity. Naturally, other nations are looking to attain this power for themselves. Arc of Alchemist will also feature simulation and base-construction elements, a job system, and a special item that lets players utilise various elemental orbs to change the actions available to them both in and out of battle.
