Agarest: Generations of War
An update on Agarest + news of a closed beta.
June 6, 2013 - Ghostlight Ltd.

Hi everyone. It's been a while since we updated you all here on Steam on how the Agarest port is coming along. So I thought I'd give you a little news blast taken from this week's Ghostlight blog. The full blogpost can be found at http://blog.ghostlight.uk.com/post/agarest-pc-to-get-closed-beta-elminage-original-collector-s-edition-content-opinions-wanted but this is the section which covers Agarest :).

It recently occurred to me that we’ve been so busy on the blog lately that I haven’t had the chance to update you on how the PC port of Agarest: Generations of War is coming along. So, what have the conversion team at Laughing Jackal [www.laughingjackal.co.uk] been up to since we last caught up with them?

Well, in addition to a huge amount of bug squashing and movie conversions, I’m happy to report that all Xbox control icons are now replaced with mouse/keyboard ones (if that’s what you choose to play the game with.) You can also remap the mouse/keyboard controls, giving you a lot more flexibility when playing. One other nice little touch is that some of the caves which were very dark in the console version have been made a little brighter, so you should finally be able to see where you’re going. :)

There’s still plenty of work left for us all to do (with lots of decisions still to be made about pre-order bonuses and digital Collector’s Editions) but we’re definitely making good progress and I’ll be sure to keep you updated here on the Ghostlight blog.

Hang on a second! I’m sure there was something else I was going to mention… (checks title)… oh, yes the Beta! :) In the near future we’re going to be offering a closed beta of Agarest on PC to a limited number of willing Steam participants. If you’d be interested in participating, then please keep your eyes peeled, as we will be providing details on how you can get involved on the blog soon.

Neat! Good luck getting on Steam!

I just heard of this PC port, and I have to say, I'm a fan of this kinda thing, Ghostlight! I wish that companies such as XSeed and Atlus would get 3rd party conversion teams to bring a ton of Japanese games over to more popular platforms here in the West, since most Japanese developers really don't seem interested in the PC and several consoles these days.

I hope this is successful for you guys, so you can keep doing it in the future! It's a crying shame that excellent titles such as Radiant Historia, Black Rock Shooter, Etrian Odyssey and Shin Megaten are stuck as handheld exclusives when they could reach so many more gamers out here in the West with even just PC ports...
