Numskull Games Announces Partnership with Spike Chunsoft to Release CRYSTAR and AI: THE SOMNIUM FILES within Europe

Earlier in the year Numskull Designs, the clothing and merchandise manufacturer that release officially licensed gaming merchandise, announced that it was going to expand into video games with the unveiling of Numskull Games. So far Numskull Games title line-up has been quite scarce but today the company announced a new partnership with Japanese developer-come-publisher SPIKE CHUNSOFT in order to release CRYSTAR and AI: THE SOMNIUM FILES within Europe and Australia.

“It is an honour to announce Spike Chunsoft as a partner of Numskull Games” explains Martin Defries of Numskull Games. “We have a deep understanding and appreciation of the games that Spike Chunsoft deliver to their many fans and are looking forward to revealing their exciting lineup of future releases across Nintendo Switch™ and PlayStation®4.”

Mitsutoshi Sakurai, the President & CEO of Spike Chunsoft, Inc, also expressed interest in releasing more games within these regions and sees this new partnership as an exciting opportunity for Spike Chunsoft.

“We are thrilled about our new partnership with Numskull Games. Our teams have a shared mission to deliver exciting, cutting-edge gaming content and experiences. We cannot wait to show our passionate community what we have in store for the future.

As previously announced last month CRYSTAR, which is a ARPG developed by FURYU Corporation for the PlayStation 4, will be released on the 30th August 2019 while AI: THE SOMNIUM FILES, which is a detective adventure game for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch set in a near-future Tokyo , will be released on the 20th September 2019. Both of these titles will also be released digitally and physically within Europe.

AI: THE SOMNIUM FILES is a detective adventure game set in a near-future Tokyo where you play as Special Agent Kaname Date on the case of a mysterious serial killer. Date must investigate crime scenes as well as dreams on the hunt for clues. From the mind of Kotaro Uchikoshi (Zero Escape series director), with character design by Yusuke Kozaki (NO MORE HEROESFire Emblem series), a thrilling neo-noir adventure is about to unfold.

CRYSTAR is an ARPG developed by FURYU Corporation. Rei fights her way through the afterworld of Purgatory to rescue Mirai, the little sister that she killed. To resurrect her, Rei makes a deal with Demons to combat Revenants and Specters—the tormented Souls of the dead. CRYSTAR’s unique game mechanics allow the player to harness the power of grief. Use Rei’s tears to craft weapons and armor as well as summon a Guardian to protect her in battle. Rei’s weeping gives her the strength to fight as she searches for her sister’s lost Soul.
