Developed by Idea Factory, a company well-known for their niche RPGs, Record of Agarest War Zero will be available in June 2011 in North America. The prequel to last year’s strategy RPG Record of Agarest War, Record of Agarest War Zero features new animated portraits during conversations and the addition of Free Intention, wherein players can explore towns, meet with party members, and influence their relationship with the game's many beautiful young women.
Long before Summerill and the gods of darkness were defeated in Record of Agarest War, another battle was fought across generations to save the world from evil. Record of Agarest War Zero takes you back to that ancient time.
- The Prequel to the RPG That Brought You Five Generations of Stories: The pivotal installment of the multi-generational tale tells the story of what happened in the age of myth that came before Record of Agarest War; detailing the rise of some to glory, and the fall of others into darkness.
- Experience Living Portraits: The beautiful, static character portraits from Record of Agarest War are now animated to resemble living and breathing characters. Players will now see characters display emotions of surprise, despair, and joy, among others.
- The Return of the Unique Soul-Breeding System: The choice of the bride at the end of the first generation determines the skill set and weapon of their offspring.
- The Addition of the New Card Skill System: Players now have more control over the battle style of the main character, as well as his skills, by way of a card system. By picking the appropriate cards, Sieghart can be customized to reflect the type of warrior one wishes to play.
