Yoru no Nai Kuni is Coming Westward as Nights of Azure

Koei Tecmo brings Gust's latest RPG to the PlayStation 4 on March 29th.

Japanese developer Gust is traditionally known for their light, fluffy RPGs that nonetheless feature some pretty rich mechanics. If you've played an Atelier or Ar Tonelico game, you should have an idea what their bright, pastel-colored creations are all about.

Their latest release, Yoru no Nai Kuni (literally, "The Land Without Light"), diverges a bit from the typical Gust style; thanks to the input of Fatal Frame and Deception producer Keisuke Kikuchi, this RPG is a little darker than their usual work. And if you're the proud owner of a PlayStation 4, you can play the English-language version when it launches Stateside on March 29th. Here's the announcement trailer if you'd like to see it in action:

With this announcement, though, fans have been quick to point out that Nights of Azure also saw PS3 and Vita versions in Japan, but these won't be localized alongside the PS4 game. And Koei-Tecmo's announcement says nothing about whether or not Nights of Azure will be digital-only, though the fact that the publisher still releases some pretty obscure stuff on disc may indicate AN will receive a proper boxed release as well. Whatever the case, if you're looking for a demon-themed RPG to fill the void created by the long-delayed Persona 5, you could certainly do much worse.
