With that in mind, today's Items of Import looks at Sigma Harmonics, a "mystery RPG" developed in-house at Square Enix. Having just released in Japan, this is a title that deserves more of our attention since an original IP from the publisher has been a long time coming. The official website for the game is loaded with content right now, and we can learn much from reading and translating it.

For aeons, the Great Clock within had locked up the Ouma demons;
and was watched over by the "Sound Users."
In our time, Sigma Kurogami, the next head of the Kurogami Household,
spends his peaceful days as a student.
But after a calamity, the Ouma are released, and the world is forever reshaped.
Believing that something has rewritten the past, now only to be full of murder,
the two that are left in this world -- Sigma and Neon, the Card User --
revisit the past to restore order to the future.
Make sure to check out the official site (link again) for an exhaustive list of the various characters in the title, including the Ouman -- Dickson and Christie -- the mysterious Black-clothed Man, and the supporting cast of Rin, Fuyou, and more.
