Tri-Ace's gorgeous RPG adventure, Exist Archive: The Other Side of the Sky, is coming to the U.S. this October. The side-scroller hit Japan via publisher Spike Chunsoft this past December, but there was no U.S. release date at the time. Aksys Games, the publisher for the Western version, and tri-Ace have announced that it release on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on October 18.
As the developer of series like Star Ocean and Valkyrie Profile, tri-Ace has the pedigree to craft great role-playing games. With Exist Archive, the developer is putting players in a unique position as far as the story is concerned. The main characters are immediately killed in a huge explosion caused by the destructive god Yamatoga. With life as it was known gone, players control a group of dead characters that inherit the power of Yamatoga and then get mixed up in a conflict between warring gods.
According to Aksys, the game features a deep story and several side-quests to entertain players. The combat system maps characters' attacks to each individual face-button on the PS4 controller or Vita. Focusing on your party configuration and chaining your attacks together are important keys to victory.

This game caught our eye at Tokyo Game Show last year, prompting Kim to name it one of the games she wanted to see localized in the future. With the date now set, JRPG fans now have another game to look forward to later this year.
