Dragons and witches clash this Summer in Dragon Star Varnir
Idea Factory has announced that Compile Heart’s turn-based JRPG, Dragon Star Varnir, will be making its way to the PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe on June 11th.
To celebrate today’s announcement, the publisher has released a new trailer showcasing the game’s airborne combat system that puts an interesting emphasis on verticality. In battle, players can arrange their party in three vertically-oriented tiers which proves to be essential, as certain enemies’ strengths and weaknesses depending on which tier you strike from.
Check out the Dragon Star Varnir combat trailer below:
Here’s a brief description of the game’s story courtesy of Idea Factory International:
“In a world where the bones of an ancient beast tower over the land…
The Knight Zephy is part of an order whose role is to hunt down witches – people seen as cursed beings for giving birth to dragons.
When he is almost killed on one of these missions, two mysterious witches save him from the brink of death by feeding him dragon blood.
Granted new magic abilities by their efforts, he soon finds his fate intertwined with the witches and reluctantly joins them to fight against an Empire out to destroy his kind, ruthless dragon hunters, and a witch more powerful than any in existence.
Can they fight all this and save themselves, or will his new allies succumb to the dragon’s curse…?”
