Crystar[a] is an action role-playing game for PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Windows, developed by Gemdrops. The game was released in 2018 in Japan, and is planned for release internationally in 2019.
The player controls a girl named Rei Hatada, who in order to revive her dead younger sister Mirai Hatada, makes a deal with the devil of the other world that is limbo. The story progresses as the player fights the souls that drift about limbo.
The concept of the game revolves around crying, which is helpful in terms of gameplay, by purifying new equipment to use. By defeating specific enemies, "Danmatsuma Thoughts" (The last moments of the dead) will appear, which by crying, will purify the thoughts and develop the protagonist mentally. Weapons called "Shisou" or "Mental Armor", can also be obtained though battle and purification.
Outside of battle and dungeon exploration, the player can also return to the real-world part of the game, where they can go in Rei's room to prepare for battle, view collectibles, pet her dog, and to enjoy everyday life through various angles.
