Nights of Azure, GUST studios’ brand new RPG, comes on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system on 1st April 2016 full of stories about a land plagued by azure-blooded demons and the beautiful protector of humanity, Arnice.
When she is not roaming the streets of Ruswal fighting dark shadowy shapes, monsters, and demonic dragons, Arnice takes solace in a local hotel to rest, trade, and prepare for the inevitable coming of the next night.
At the Hotel, she can buy and sell weapons and a variety of gear to aid her in battle and, after certain quests have been completed, she can trade with Lloyd, the merchant, and order rare and powerful items! She can also pick up quests from the hotel proprietor, Simon, to earn money or various items. These quests can also provide and interesting insight into the background story of the world, which Arnice herself is oblivious to.
Additionally, the Hotel is the entrance point to an exciting Arena feature. In the progress of the story, Arnice gains entry to an arena which can be used to hone her skills and earn special rewards!
