The latest issue of Famitsu recently revealed some more information regarding the upcoming Vita RPG Chronos Materia, which is being developed by Gust. Not unlike Radiant Historia, this game will have a time-travelling mechanic that lets you go back and forth through certain points in the game and change how certain events play out. One of these events that you can alter include a fire burning down a forest village.

Nothing about the combat system for Chronos Materia has been revealed yet, but there will be an item synthesis mechanic that allows you to create various items. Items and experience are also retained while you jump around through time, so it’s possible to go back to certain boss fights that were previously giving you a hard time and stomp them with some +5 Spiked Steel Boots of Pettiness.

    whoa! now that’s great news. if the battle system turns out good it could be a hit! radiata stories and radiant historia are great. has a publisher been named yet?

  • Seth Hoffman

    Graphics looked like Atelier Rorona (and further) series, and now you’re telling me it’ll have similar mechanics to Radiant Historia? This might just be the best JRPG coming out in the near(ish) future!
