The mobile strategy RPG combines classic JRPG elements with strategy and card collection and has already garnered over a million sign-ups to date.

Alchemy Stars: Aurora Blast follows the enchanting tale of the land of Astra, where dark forces threaten the peace that the Aurorians and Caelestites have enjoyed for centuries. A diverse band of heroes must join forces to repel mysterious creatures of the dark called Eclipsites, all drawn in a stunning anime art style with a breathtaking musical score.

Not only are the unique characters an absolute joy to play with their distinct personalities, cosmetics, and battle moves, but the gameplay mechanic itself is one-of-a-kind in that it blends line strategy, elemental manipulation, and card collecting in a seamless and refreshing way.
