Ar tonelico III: The Girl's Song that Pulls the Trigger of World's Demise is a console role-playing game produced by Gust and Namco Bandai for the Sony Playstation 3. It is the third installment in the Ar tonelico series, taking place in the Reyvateil-ruled country of Clusternia, which is within an area known as the Sol Cluster. Clusternia is situated on the third tower in the world of Ar Ciel, which floats above the uninhabitable Sea of Death. It is the first 3D game in the series.
- Reyvateils can sing in a language known as Hymmnos to attack. However, depending on the actions of the player, the hymnos will "combine" and change the music. These changes can have added effects such as increasing the vanguard's attack power.
- During the game Aoto can "dive" into the Cosmospheres (spiritual world) of heroine Reyvateils to craft Song Magic. Various personalities exist within the Cosmosphere, and the player can choose to have the Reyvateil fight in the clothing of one of them.
- Because the personalities who wear these costumes have differing Song Magic preferences, the costume will influence the R.A.H. system.
- Diving additionally deepens the bond between the Reyvateil and Aoto, which in turn enables the Reyvateil to "unleash" her clothes for greater power.
