The Luminous Arc series of games started as a trilogy of tactical role-playing games: Luminous Arc, Luminous Arc 2, and Luminous Arc 3. All three entries were developed by Imageepoch, published by Marvelous Entertainment, and released between 2007 and 2009 on the Nintendo DS handheld video game platform. Outside of some rumors of the series moving to the PlayStation Portable, which never materialized, the series laid dormant until 2014. The game was first announced in August 2014, as part of the "Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia Press Conference 2014", Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show conference. However, the game would not be developed by Imageepoch, but rather Felistella, as Imageepoch was going through financial troubles that eventually lead to their closure in 2015. Similarly, Felistella had previously taken over in continuing the Summon Night tactical role-playing game series of games with Summon Night 5, on behalf of Flight-Plan, who had closed in 2012. The game's producer was announced to be Yoshifumi Hashimoto, producer of the Rune Factory series of video games.
The game was released on August 6, 2015 in Japan. The game has not been announced for release in English or any other regions yet.
