Another small detail regarding the battle system of Arc the Lad: Seirei no Tasogare has emerged from obscurity and into the forefront.
The battle system will feature a factor called "tension," and it will affect the characters' execution of skills. Higher tension means more effective maneuvers, so players should use any means necessary to raise the tension level while fighting foes. This can be carried out through communication between the characters during combat.
In a recent interview, Victor Ireland of Working Designs mentioned the company's interest in the next installment to the Arc the Lad series. Working Designs was responsible for bringing the series to North America in the form of Arc the Lad Collection, and their interest in Arc the Lad: Seirei no Tasogare is no surprise. Ireland noted that Sony has first chance at the North American version of the game, but went on to say that if Sony is not interested, Working Designs will take on the project.
Arc the Lad: Seirei no Tasogare is due for release sometime this winter.
