Destiny Connect is a new RPG game from Nippon Ichi Software that was made in the style of 3D animation from the ‘90s. The main character of the game is a curious young girl named Sherry who lives in Clockney that gets frozen in time, and she will need to travel across various eras in order to bring back the normal flow of time in her hometown.
Anime News Network said in an article on their website:
“The game’s protagonist is a 10-year-old girl named Shari, who is seeking to uncover the mystery of a crisis that is infecting her home town of Clockney. In the year 2000, she is watching the New Year’s fireworks with her mother when all the people in town mysteriously freeze and strange machines take their places. Shari teams up with a robot named Isaac and her friend Pegureo to use time travel to fight against the menace. The work will have a theme of tying generations together.
The game will have full 3D graphics and turn-based combat. Shari and her allies will be able to learn a variety of skills for battle, and the robot Isaac will be customizable using “gear” items.
Yoshihiko Toda is directing the game and Jun Yokota of SYUPRO-DX is writing the scenario.”
