Stella Glow, a SRPG for the Nintendo 3DS is one of those games that almost never came out. The developer Imageepoch was not only going to develop it themselves, but also self publish Stella Glow to celebrate the studio’s 10th year anniversary. Sadly the company had to file bankruptcy. SEGA picked up the publishing rights for the game in Japan and like typical SEGA fashion, had no plans on publishing it outside of Japan.
In comes Atlus, who picked up the title to distribute in North America (game is coming to Europe via NIS America) and now we have a release date! Set your calendars to November 17th, the game will retail for $49.99/ CA$59.99. If you get the game during its launch window you will get the ‘Launch Day Edition’ upgrade for free. Hit jump to read what you get with the Launch Day Edition of Stella Glow.
- Hilda’s Crystal Garden Cloth Poster – This is a large poster made of cloth (so it won’t permanently crease by being folded in the package!) that features the striking image of Hilda, the Witch of Destruction posing with her scythe atop a seat of crystals.
- Bubu Flexi-Charm – Bubu is the pet pig of the Witch Popo, and hopefully by now you’ve insinuated that it’s super cute (because it is!). The charm is soft vinyl and since Bubu is such a loyal companion, the charm can be attached to whatever needs more piggy goodness. Oh, and it’s a real porker too at approximately 3″ x 3″.
- “Song Magic” CD – This is a 5-song disc featuring the vocal themes of the five Witches. The CD will arrive in a separate sleeve featuring artwork from the Witch Tuning sequences from the game.
- Collectible Outer Box – Similar to what we did with The Legend of Legacy, all the aforementioned premiums will be included in a large outer box. We didn’t just reuse the 3DS game cover either — the outer box is a new design featuring the protagonist, Alto, and the five Witches. Lisette on the spine of the box is a nice touch, and I once again salute our designers for putting together such a great-looking package.
