Ar Tonelico Qoga: Knell of Ar Ciel, the third and last iteration of Ar Tonelico, is coming to Europe spring next year on the PS3, Koei has confirmed.

The game is set in the kingdom of Sol Cluster and is ruled by Clustania, an organization that wants to dominate the world by enslaving humans and using the power of Reyvateils. But the two Reyvateils don’t share this desire and, so with the help of protagonist, Aoto they take the fight to Clustania. With multiple endings on offer, choices you make throughout the game will determine the outcome of the series.

Elsewhere, the game has the expected visual upgrade but is 3D this time, whilst the combat system has been overhauled and is more action driven than the two previous games, allowing you to freely move around the battlefield. The song magic has returned and you can influence the power of the Reyvateils through a Rhythm action like feature.

Outside of combat, you’re also able to dive into the minds of your  female Reyvateil companions to learn more powerful song magic, which has always been one of the most fascinating and quirky aspects of the series.
