Compile Heart has today announced that Arc of Alchemist, one of their upcoming new RPGs, is going to have its release date delayed in Japan. Although they just published new trailers for this action RPG last week, They just decided to delay the game's release, which was initially slated for November 29, citing further quality improvement as a reason.
Below you can read a translation of the Japanese statement which was posted at Compile Heart's official website:
Thank you very much for your continued patronage towards our company's products.
Regarding Arc of Alchemist, which was planned to be released on November 29, 2018, we have decided to take the liberty of changing its planned release in order to further increase the quality.
We deeply apologize for causing trouble to our customers who have been looking forward to the release, as well as the related companies. We also hope you will continue supporting us with unchanged patronage.
Arc of Alchemist's release date in Japan has been changed to February 7, 2019, while there is still no news on an English localization yet. Other than this game, Compile Heart is currently preparing to release even more new games in Japan, such as Varnir of the Dragon Star which is due to be released on October 11 and Azur Lane Crosswave which currently does not have a release timeframe yet.
