Musical Instruments Are Weapons in Action RPG AereA

SOEDESCO Publishing and Triangle Studios have announced a new IP titled AereA, the first in a planned series of music-themed action RPGs in which you will explore the floating island of Aezir on a mission to find the nine primordial instruments, thus restoring peace to the world.

On this epic quest, you will play as one of Great Maestro Guido’s four disciples, each armed with a unique instrumental weapon. There’s Wolff the Harp-Archer, Jacques the Cello-Knight, Jules the Lute-Mage, and Claude the Trumpet-Gunner, available to play solo or in local cooperative multiplayer as a full quartet of heroic justice. Collecting special Music Sheets will allow you to learn new musical abilities and upgrade weapons. Even the designs of the game’s nine bosses will each draw inspiration from a different musical instrument.

AereA is scheduled to begin touring the globe on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One this summer, though a specific tour date has not yet been announced. Wishlist the game on Steam to keep track of any release date announcements or other news that will be coming in the months ahead. Or just keep checking back here as I’ll surely be posting updates as new information or media surfaces.
