Gust's PlayStation Vita Game is a "Realtime Life Simulation"


Dengeki PlayStation listed the genre for Gust's PlayStation Vita game Surge Concerto: Ciel no Surge ~Ushinawareta Hoshi e Sasagu Shi~ as "ETC," which even in Japanese means "other." This week's Famitsu is a bit more specific with the genre: "Realtime Life Simulation."

According to retailer blog Sinobi, which gets Famitsu early, players will be solving the mysteries buried deep within the memories of Ion, the heroine that was shown in the teaser ads Gust shared a few weeks back. You'll communicate with Ion, who exists in the world on the opposite side of your Vita screen.

Ion is shown in the mug shot in this teaser ad from a late December issue of Dengeki PlayStation.

The game is being directed by Akira Tsuchiya, director of the Ar Tonelico games.

Like Dengeki, Famitsu refers to Ciel no Surge as an online-only title. It's unclear at present what that means. Dengeki promised a followup for its next issue, which hits on February 9, so we'll have to speculate for the next couple of weeks.
