Passing the time

With role-playing games, it can be difficult to explain just how a release's unique system works with words alone. Ready to lend a helping hand, Koei Tecmo has released a whopping seven videos showcasing some of the weird and wonderful things that you can expect from Ar Nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star, which will be released on the PlayStation 3 from 23rd September in North America and 26th September in Europe.

While the field, battle, and event videos are pretty predictable, it's the more unique gimmicks that stand out in the clips embedded below. You can watch a song decimate an enemy using all but a book, dance along while you wait for your items to be created in synthesis, or just power up by stripping down and having a good old wash. As mad as it may sound, it's all real, and seems to be giving the title a distinctive flavour during these busy release months.
