The Alliance Alive is a JRPG that merges old-school RPG gameplay with modern aesthetics.

With writing by Yoshitaka Murayama, a vision realized by director Masataka Matsuura, beautiful game designs from Kyoji Koizumi and a stunning score delivered by acclaimed composer Masashi Hamauzu, players will experience the nostalgia delivered by these JRPG greats. With gorgeous world exploration,' an intertwining story involving nine memorable characters, and strategic, turn-based gameplay mechanics, players won't want to miss this return to JRPG excellence.

One thousand years ago, Daemons invaded the world of Humans. They subjugated Humanity and created the Great Barrier to separate the realms. The world was thrown into upheaval, and the Dark Current was born. It carved a cross-shaped swath across the ocean, swallowing countless cities in its wake. Humanity was decimated. Hundreds of years later, Daemons rule atop a hierarchical society. However, the time for resistance has come. The world is about to change yet again...

The Alliance Alive will be available physically and digitally in the West on 3DS starting March 27, 2018

We've already introduced some of the human characters in our previous trailer, but let's talk about some of the more colorful members of the group. And by colorful, we mean Daemonic. Yes, you read that correctly; there are good Daemons that want to join the fight to help free Humanity!

First up, we have the mighty, no-nonsense, Beastfolk Barbarosa. Although he was once used as an instrument of war by the Daemons to enslave humanity, he is now a key member of the Night Ravens resistance group. His skills with an axe and loyalty to his friends are valuable assets in the battles to come. Up next, we have the dynamic duo of Vivian and Ignace. Vivian is a fox-like Daemon from another world who wishes to learn more about the curious creatures known as humans. She's a compassionate being that harbors no ill-will towards other species, but don't let her bubbly and friendly disposition fool you. Vivian is an extremely powerful sorceress who won't hesitate to use her powers for good. Finally, we have Vivian's servant, Ignace. Even though he's extremely pompous towards non-Daemons and clashes with some members of the party, his loyalty to Vivian is unwavering. Plus, he's pretty good in a scrap, so never count him out!

There are whispers of resistance, and now the time is ripe to bring it to a roar. Can you fan the flames of rebellion and lead mankind to victory?

Built on a sprawling world replete with numerous secrets to discover, players will need to establish and unite guilds throughout the four realms while battling the Daemons. Use the "Ignition" system, a part of the turn-based combat that allows for deep customization and nuanced gameplay, to reach an enhanced state and deliver devastating Final Strikes. In The Alliance Alive, players will need to keep their wits about them and think strategically to win each fight!

The Alliance Alive will be available physically and digitally in the West on 3DS starting March 27, 2018 for $39.99/€39.99/£29.99 and pre-orders are now live.
