Release Information

Falcom has updated the release information for the game on their site.

It now lists 7/21/2016 as the release date for the PlayStation Vita version, and ‘2017’ for the PlayStation 4 version.

New Characters


Weapon: Rifle and Bayonet

Hummel is a lone smuggler on Siren Island. He takes a great deal of pride in his work, and his nature ensures that once he takes a job, he sees it through to perfection. He is also a neat freak.

For some reason, he has an item in his possession that he was commissioned to care for, and he is obstinate about keeping quiet on its contents.

He is in possession of a state-of-the-art miniaturized firearm called a “rifle.”


CV: Nozomi Yamamoto
Weapon: Whip Mace

Ricotta is a girl who drifted ashore and has lived on Siren Island before the arrival of Adol and the others. She may be a simple and naive girl, but she has a lot of knowledge of the geography and ruins of the island.

Since drifting onto the island, she has read many books and begun learning many languages, and she can sometimes lean heavily to this knowledge, sometimes speaking with strange wordings.

She waits alone for her ‘father,’ who has set out on a quest to explore the island.

Other Updates

Other updates include new support banners (I’ve updated the Endless History one), and a section for voice actor comments.

    1. I have no clue. The word ‘father’ was also in brackets in Japanese. So it’ll be an exciting thing to find out.

      And yes!! I LOVE Hummel’s design, 100%, too.
