Stella Glow coming to the West in…March?

NIS America have announced a release date of March 11th 2016 for Stella Glow, an SRPG game for the 3DS. The game will be getting both a digital and physical release. The game is developed by

Here is what NIS America says about the game:

About the game:

As most reluctant heroes do, Stella Glow-protagonist Alto starts as a country boy in a small town. One day, he hears a song coming from the forest (which is odd, since song has been absent on the planet for thousands of years), where he discovers the lone Hilda. But after the chance encounter, Hilda reveals she’s the Witch of Destruction, hellbent on destroying the world with her Harbingers. As Hilda is about to destroy Alto’s hometown, he and Lisette are rescued by the Royal Knights and whisked back safely to the kingdom. Alto joins the 9th Regiment for the sole purpose of gathering the other Witches to stop Hilda.

Key Features:

Song Magic — Famous Japanese voice actors sing more than 20 songs in the game. Plus, the soundtrack is composed by Yasunori Mitsuda (Chrono TriggerXenogears). The songs are part of Song Magic – a vital combat and story element. Players can even choose to “tune” the Witches’ hearts to increase their abilities.

Solid Strategy Gameplay — From the team behind the classic Luminous Arc games comes a brand new IP with the same renowned level of strategic combat.

Free Time — Players will get an allotment of Free Time where they can upgrade or buy items, tune Witches’ hearts, explore, and grind experience, but that’s in limited supply as Combat Time will drive along the game’s story.

Forming Bonds — Several Free Time options allow players to deepen relationships with their comrades, even form romances, which can unlock new powers and special events – make sure to use your Free Time accordingly!

Plenty of FightStella Glow will have 40-60 hours of story and sidequest content, with multiple endings, New Game+ mode, and more than 50 maps to battle on. The world of Stella Glow is rich and vibrant with tons to do!

The game sounds pretty nice to me, for some reason I’ve been drawn to the Chrono Trigger OST recently so seeing Mitsuda’s name there has gotten me really excited for this game, considering that it seems like music plays a huge part of the story in this game, that just makes it even better. There are also some screenshots to show. Unfortunately, they’re in Japanese and I don’t have the translations for them, but if I come across them, I’ll update  them here.

And finally, the opening movie.

Personally, I’m pretty excited for this one. It’s the first time I’ve heard about it and it seems to tick all the boxes for me. March can’t come soon enough.
