Sporting over one hundred hours of gameplay, Record of Agarest War is an SRPG which invites players into a gorgeous, expansive world of hope and despair. Players will wage war against the evil forces of darkness, take a bride - actually, several brides - and extend their lineage through five generations!

Released under the name Agarest Senki in Japan this action role playing game caused quite a stir with its Soul Breed gaming system where, having saved the world, the player is courted by three princesses all vying to become the next queen. Having tempted the player to make a decision the resulting progeny possesses characteristics and style influenced by the players choice of bride.

This extremely innovative feature alongside an excellent storyline, comprehensive character development and fantastic gaming environments led Agarest Senki to receive critical acclaim in the Japanese gaming media and excellent sales in the stores.

At the heart of the gameplay is the combined strength of the three collaborators behind the project – Idea Factory, Red Entertainment and Compile Heart. Each company has an outstanding reputation for developing high quality, in-depth and rewarding strategy games and the European release will not see any alteration from the original code in any way.

In fact Ghostlight will be adding to the release with their announcement of a Collectors Edition alongside the standard retail version. The Collectors Edition will feature unique value added extras including an art book, postcards and other exclusive items. More importantly there will be just one batch of the Collectors Edition released in Europe so pre-ordering will be required.

Sam Collins, Head of Sales at Ghostlight stated “Ghostlight is delighted to be able to announce the release of Agarest: Generations of War for Europe. Our previous Japanese releases have included Shadow Hearts: from the New World and several games from the Shin Megami Tensei series and the response from the gamers of Europe has been overwhelming. We will continue to release such innovative and high quality titles in Europe for the foreseeable future.”

Agarest: Generations of War will available via all good video game stores, on-line retailers and also via the Ghostlight website.
