I have to say I had not heard of Anima Gate of Memories until today thanks to our Discord chat. I've checked it out and I think it looks awesome.

It is releasing on Linux as per their original platform list:
QuoteOur first goal is to publish Gate of Memories on Windows, Mac, and Linux through Steam


Sadly though, the Linux & Mac version have been pushed back:
QuoteSadly, we will need a little more time to finish the Linux and Mac versions. We want to apologize for it, but it will take about 2 additional months after the release. To all those who were waiting for such version, I want to sincerely apologize for the small delay.


We don't have many good looking action role-playing games like this, especially in the anime style it uses which has me very interested in it.

About the game
Anima: Gate of Memories is a third person action RPG that tells the story of two beings bound by an unwilling pact, an ancient monster and a girl who lost her past...
Forced to stay together, their lives will take a unexpected turn when both discover that something darker than they could imagine is about to start, a war in the shadows in which they will have a leading role.

Anima: Gate of Memories brings to videogames the world of Gaia from the Anima: Beyond Fantasy RPG table-top books. You will enjoy a deep and multifaceted story where your choices and actions directly impact the journey and decide the fate of the characters.

Also, keep in mind it's using Unity3D Engine.

WOW!! Anyway... now its in my wishlist! I love this kind of games!!

It appears to be a JRPG but the studio is American run out of Washington. Eastern developers have only just started paying any attention to PC at all, so it will be a right of passage for Linux when they consider it as a target platform.

It's a Devil May Cry type of game, something we sorely lack on Linux. It definitely has great potential. I hope they're using the newest version of Unity.

It's hard to avoid comparisons to Dark Souls, particularly given I think it's illegal to talk about fantasy ARPGs with epic soundtracks without mentioning Dark Souls at least once. But I think Melkemind has the right of it, this owes more of its heritage to the more flamboyant Devil May Cry style. This could be a real winner, based on the flash alone. Hopefully it runs as well as the trailer suggests.

Have never played any Devil May Cry type of game but with Linux support this looks to be right up my alley.

This is definitely an instant buy from me, looks really pretty and love DMCs titles.

You know what they say: "Waiting makes it better!" Nice to be a Linux gamer eh? We sure spend a lot of time waiting...
