Closely following their work with SUPERBEAT: XONiC, video game publisher Acttil have announced plans to bring the dungeon crawler RPG RAY GIGANT to western markets. This title was originally developed by Experience Inc., and will be released digitally on the PlayStation Vita in 2016.
In RAY GIGANT, players will be introduced to three heroic characters who share a common goal of saving their world, though they carry different sets of ideals. Ray Gigant will reveal each of their stories through their own arcs which will all seamlessly converge by the end of the game. The name “Gigant” represents mysterious, alien life-forms which have invaded Earth. These beings come in various shapes and sizes, and generally take the form of beasts from legend. However, unlike those mythical beasts, Gigants do not harbor a brilliant, celestial aura. Whatever aura they do possess is something much more vile.

Ichiya lost control of his power and tragically destroyed the city he tried so hard to protect. After this fateful experience, he fell unconscious. Ichiya was then detained and sent to a safe location where his fate would soon unfold…
