Valthirian Arc Hero School Story 2 early 2023

We have an update on Valthirian Arc: Hero School Story 2, the RPG and simulation hybrid from PQube and Agate International. Both sides have confirmed that the title is now appearing on Switch in early 2023. Previously, it was planned for this year.

In case you missed our previous coverage, here’s an overview of the game:

Curse of the Sea Rats character

PQube and Petoons Studio shared an update on Curse of the Sea Rats today, and we now have a closer look at the title’s characters. We’re introduced to David Douglas, Buffalo Calf, Bussa, and Akane Yamakawa.

We have bios for each one below:

PQube seems to have confirmed that Alice Gear Aegis CS: Concerto of Simulatrix will be releasing in the West on Switch next year. Official listings for the game have popped up at online retailers such as Amazon, featuring a March 16, 2023 release date.

Alice Gear Aegis CS: Concerto of Simulatrix is the console version of the original 3D action mobile title Alice Gear Aegis. The game originally released on Switch in Japan last September.

Back in August, it was announced that upcoming adventure game A Space for the Unbound was to be delayed indefinitely due friction between the game’s developers, Toge Productions and Mojiken Studio, and their publisher at the time, PQube. Thankfully, this situation has now been resolved, with PQube ceding publishing rights to Chorus Worldwide.

While Toge Productions is still set to publish the game on PC, Chorus Worldwide is picking up the publishing mantle as global publisher for all console versions. As such, it would seem that PQube will no longer be involved in the game’s launch, but the title should be getting primed for release once again.

Here is the full statement from the involved parties detailing release plans going forwards:

Curse of the Sea Rats delayed physical

Curse of the Sea Rats has been delayed, with publisher PQube sharing a new early 2023 release window for the game. We also have confirmation that a physical version is planned.

Regarding the decision to push the title back, PQube said the team “will be using this time to improve balancing and performance, and to add voiceover to enhance the story of the final game.”
