In Atlus's upcoming Nintendo 3DS title Stella Glow, Hilda, Witch of Destruction, is out to "save" the world by getting rid of every living thing in it. But one person alone can't accomplish that, so she gets some help in the form of her underlings, the Harbingers. And Atlus has released a new trailer showcasing that exact group.
For those who played games from the Luminous Arc series, this game should be very familiar as it's from the same developer and has some touches to it that will remind players of that game. With around 40-60 hours of story, the game follows protagonist Alto as he battles to save humanity from destruction, learning the secrets behind the five witches and their powerful Song Magic. The game has a cycle of Combat Time and Free Time, the former is for advancing the game's story through battles, while the latter allows players a finite number of choices to explore, upgrade, or form relationships with members of their party.
First is Hilda's right-hand man, Dante. He's a master spearman with that kind of attitude you just want to pummel him into the ground for. Next is Dorothy, a girl who has a intense love of bunnies along with being a chainsaw-wielding psycho who wants to rip anything that gets in her way apart. And finally rounding out the group is Hrodulf, who has a tendency to use his axe to cleave his opponents first before asking questions later, to round out Hilda's personal squad.
All North American pre-orders will be upgraded to a special Launch Edition that includes a cloth poster, soft vinyl charm and a "Song Magic" CD, all enclosed in a special collectible outer box. More information about the launch edition can be found here.
Stella Glow will be released on November 17 in North America at retail and digitally via the Nintendo eShop for $49.99. NIS America will release the title in Spring 2016 both at retail and digitally, although no price point or launch edition bonuses are currently decided for that territory.
