Originally Stella Glow was suppose to be not only developed by Imageepoch, but also published by them. Sadly they went bankrupt and SEGA picked up publishing duties for the game in Japan, while Atlus USA picked up publishing for the West. Today Atlus USA has posted the following opening movie for the English release of Stella Glow, featuring new music and introducing us to the main cast of characters. Atlus also posted the following information regarding the game:
- Song Magic: Famous Japanese voice actors sing more than 20 songs in the game. Plus, the soundtrack is composed by Yasunori Mitsuda (Chrono Trigger, Xenogears). The songs are part of Song Magic – a vital combat and story element.
- Players will get an allotment of Free Time where they can upgrade or buy items, tune Witches’ hearts, explore, and grind experience, but that’s in limited supply as Combat Time will drive along the game’s story.
- Stella Glow will have 40-60 hours of story and side quest content, with multiple endings, New Game+ mode, and more than 50 maps to battle on, the world of Stella Glow is rich and vibrant with tons to do!
- From the team behind the classic Luminous Arc games comes a brand new IP with the same renowned strategic combat.
Stella Glow will be released exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS and according to Atlus USA it will be available this holiday season (Amazon has it listed for November 17th and priced at $49.99). Below is the new box art (same as Japanese version) for the US release and new screenshots of the game.
