SINoALICE and Another Eden: The Cat That Travels Through Space and Time confirmed for the west
GREE announced during its Fiscal Year 2019 Q1 earnings presentation they will be releasing SINoALICE and Another Eden in North America and Europe, though a release date was not shared.
While we already knew previously that Another Eden: The Cat That Travels Through Space and Time will find its way to the west, this marks the first time that SINoALICE, a smartphone title directed by Yoko Taro (NieR Automata), has been given any indication of a localization.
Another Eden is a free-to-play mobile game revolving around the idea of time travel. It features a script penned by Masato Kato (Chrono Trigger) and a theme song composed by Yasunori Mitsuda (all your favorite games). Shunsuke Tsuchiya (Arc Rise Fantasia) and Mariam Abounnasr are its primary composers.
The game stars Aldo, the game's protagonist, and his sister, Feene. A demon king seeks to use Feene's dormant abilities to erase humans from the world. During a desperate moment while failing to rescue his sister, a distortion in space-time occurs in the air, and Aldo escapes 800 years into the future.
Originally released back in June 2017, SINoALICE is directed by Yoko Taro with Pokelabo (Senki Zesshou Symphogear XD Unlimited, Senran no Samurai Kingdom) serving as its developer. Keiichi Okabe, who has composed music for Yoko Taro's previous projects including NieR Automata and Drakengard 3, performed the game's soundtrack once again. The game's story revolves around female storybook characters trapped in the world of "Library." Their only wish is to bring someone back as their author.
Whereas Another Eden is listed as "self-distribution," SINoALICE is shown under "distribution by partners." Considering Crunchyroll published Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? earlier this year as part of a contract with GREE, there's a good chance they'll be handling this title as well.
