A.W. Phoenix Festa Out Now for PS Vita, Launch Trailer
A.W. : Phoenix Festa has launched on PSN today for the PlayStation Vita console. This game is based off the popular Japanese light novel The Asterisk War: The Academy City on the Water. The game itself is a dating sim / fighting game hybrid with multiple endings based on which character you have a relationship with.
Here is what you need to know about A.W.: Phoenix Festa:
In order to recover from the devastation, the Integrated Enterprise Foundation is formed and cities are reorganized including one city called Rikka, also known as Asterisk. Within Asterisk, six academies hold tournaments called “Festas” pitting students from each academy against each other.
A.W. : Phoenix Festa combines dating sim mechanics and combat in one game and features its own original storyline carved from the light novel series. The game will let fans experience a true love adventure with numerous endings. A.W. : Phoenix Festa will also offer players various options to enhance relationships between their favorite characters which can be influenced through battles and conversations with non-playable characters (NPCs). Players may start the game as main character Ayato or an original character and go about daily school life by making friends and competing in the “Phoenix Festa” tournament. Players also train themselves in order to increase their combat abilities as they prepare to participate in the “Phoenix Festa” tournament with their favorite characters.
Check out the Trailer:
“While the series has already been adapted into manga and anime, Phoenix Festa marks its first jump into videogames. The Vita title puts players in the shoes of Seidoukan Academy’s Ayato Amagiri, a young transfer student who has to ultimately choose one partner for the tournament.
As expected of a dating sim, there are multiple endings to arrive at. However, players may opt to go through the story with their own customized character instead, or replace their AI tournament opponents with friends through an ad-hoc mode.”
