Yesterday, Nippon Ichi Software (NIS) unveiled the debut trailer, as well as a boatload of information, for their brand new RPG set for release on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 on February 28, 2019, titled Destiny Connect.
The game revolves around the 10-year-old ‘Sherry’ and is set in the fictional city of ‘Clockney’. The story takes place on New Year’s Eve 1999, the day before the world is set to usher in the new millennium. Every year, to welcome the new year, the city holds the ‘Soul Man Festival’ which hosts a massive fireworks display as the countdown to new year reaches zero.
However, when the fireworks begin, time in the city stops. Both the fireworks and the people who live in the city come to a halt, with the city now frozen in time. The reason for the city being stuck in time is related to the machines that now wander this static city, and you must travel to the past and the future in order to fix the issues that face Clockney and restart time itself. The game is a turn-based RPG, with a variety of customization mechanics that allow both human and robot companions to gain new abilities over the course of the game. Time travel will also be a key component in uncovering the mysteries of Clockney.
While a Western release of this game has yet to be announced, the fact that it is being developed internally by Nippon Ichi Software makes us hopeful that it will see a release in some form. If you want to learn more about Destiny Connect, be sure to check out the game’s official website.
