Astria Ascending Showcases J-Ster Mini Game

Let’s Play J-Ster in Astria Ascending


Astria Ascending | Featured

Since I first heard about Astria Ascending, I knew it had the potential to be special. And that was before I knew the team developing it, Artisan Studios, was composed of Final Fantasy veterans. I love the classic Final Fantasy games, and they wouldn’t be complete without an in-depth mini game or two. As such, it’s not a surprise there’s one in Astria Ascending called J-Ster.

J-Ster is focused on using tokens strategically. Move them around carefully and slowly grow your J-Ster army. Better yet, you can steal more J-Ster tokens from foes, or even transform foes themselves into tokens! Going from the trailer, there’s a ton of depth to the mini game. It looks like a lot of fun, assuming the mini game isn’t too hard to wrap our heads around.

You can find out more details about the newly revealed mini game below. And if you like what you see, please keep in mind that Astria Ascending is coming to PC, Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Series X|S and Game Pass on September 30th. So you can play it pretty much on your console of choice, which is always a good feeling.
