Koei Tecmo have announced that the PlayStation Vita port of Ar nosurge, entitled Ar nosurge Plus: Ode to an Unborn Star, will be coming to North America and Europe this July.

Ar nosurge Plus: Ode to an Unborn Star is a fantasy, sci-fi, "˜7-Dimension' RPG that takes place in a world where music and song can create magic. It tells the compelling story of a civilization that lost their planet and has been roaming the edge of space for 2000 years in search of a new home. The player follows two sets of characters: Delta and Casty, whose goal is to protect humanity and save the world, and Ion and Earthes, who are trying to find Ion a way home to Earth. The player can change between both pairs and discover a way to combine their storylines and strengths to eventually solve the mystery that shrouds their on-going struggles.

The Plus version includes a number of bonuses exclusive to the PlayStation Vita port, along with including some of the DLC from the PS3 version pre-loaded. The updates to the game are listed below:
