Developer Sting has released Blaze Union: Story to Reach the Future Remaster for iOS and Android in Japan, priced at JPY$2,800. First launched for Nintendo Switch on April 27 in Japan, the game is an HD remaster of the fantasy strategy RPG first released for PSP in May 2010.
The remaster has updated the PSP game with high-definition visuals and improved operability and tempo. Useful features like rewind and auto-save, and various other adjustments that make gameplay more pleasant are equipped in this version. A new EASY mode and NIGHTMARE mode are also added to suit the needs of different players.
The story of Blaze Union: Story to Reach the Future depicts the day before the strategic RPG Yggdra Union: We’ll Never Fight Alone, in which the main character Garlot confronts the unreasonable reality with his friends to resist the empire. It also has a multi-story that changes depending on the player’s actions.
In this tactical RPG, units are displayed on a grid of spaces that decide where the characters can move. The game has a unique “Union” mechanic, where attacks are performed in formations called unions. Most unions involve multiple units, but it is possible to attack with a “union” of one unit. Forming unions allows more than one unit to join the battle, allowing for battles between as many as one hundred and twenty soldiers.
The Steam version of Yggdra Union: We’ll Never Fight Alone has also entered early access worldwide in February, supporting English, Japanese, Korean, and Traditional Chinese language options.
