Legend of Raven Feature

Legend of Raven was originally announced by Nicalis as a PlayStation Vita title. While the game is still going to the Vita, it will also be available on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It will be a cross-buy and cross-play title for the PS4 and Vita. It has also been announced that the game will feature online network battles that will use lag-free GGPO technology. I’ve no clue what that is but I like the sound of it being lag-free!

The year was December 25th, 1926. Japan was on the verge of welcoming a new era…the era of “Koubun”.

Instead a revolution broke out, led by those who hoped to revive the Land of the Gods, Japan, and return her to its former glory. The Prime Minister’s cabinet, the police department, the Zaibatsu families, the mass media…the flow of information to the outside world was immediately suppressed.

Out of options, the old government resorted to creating a group of elite assassins, called the “Yatagarasu” in order to maintain order and suppress the rebellion.

These government agents have become known as the “Government’s Dogs” by the general populace. Now, they are on the move towards “Iga-sei”, which is said to still function as the government’s intelligence hub.

Legend of Raven continues Nicalis’ partnerships with ultra-talented and super-awesome independent developers. Previously Nicalis has teamed up with 8bits Fanatics (1001 Spikes), Edmund McMillen (The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth), Studio Pixel (Cave Story, Ikachan), Nicklas Nygren (NightSky), and Terry Cavanagh (VVVVVV).
