The game plays out from an isometric perspective and features lovely 2.5D graphics. It looks to modernise the traditional turn-based JRPG experience but maintain that old school feel whilst telling a story about family, friendships, love and loss.
Azure Saga: Pathfinder takes place far into the future after humanity has resorted to surviving in colonies that are dotted throughout the universe. With humanity on the brink of extinction then, the one last remaining hope is the planet Azure, which promises a planet full of life and resources.
The game’s protagonist, Synch, is a young scientist who embarks on an adventure to meet new companions and find his father. You can expect an intergalactic tale then that follows a fairly typical JRPG storyline.
