In The Legend of Legacy, Seven adventurers – Liber, Meurs, Owen, Bianca, Garnet, Eloise, Filmia – arrive on the mysterious island of Avalon to pursue their own agenda as explorers. They team up with two of the other adventurers to achieve  their objectives – be it exploring the island for treasure, looking for the “god” on the island, or recovering  lost memories. But things change when they discover a singing stone that causes the party to see phantasms of Avalon’s forgotten history.

 

Gameplay features in The Legend of Legacy include:

  • Seven Unique Perspectives – Each character in The Legend of Legacy has their own motivation for exploring Avalon, and their individual conclusion at the story’s resolution. Play through as each character to see them all!
  • Combat Gets Classless – Managing formations to instruct specific combat roles instead of fixed classes adds a different level of challenge for battle enthusiasts.
  • Legendary Development – Illustrator Tomomi Kobayashi (SaGa series), renowned composer Masashi Hamauzu (SaGa, Final Fantasy XIII), writer Masato Kato (Chrono Trigger), game designer Kyoji Koizumi (SaGa series), and Masataka Matsuura (999: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors) all come together to create this brand new experience.
  • Adjusted for the West – Based on user feedback following the Japanese release, several gameplay adjustments were made to enhance the gameplay. More details to come later!

The Legend of Legacy is a brand new RPG developed by FuRyu and published in the Americas by ATLUS. The game will have both physical and digital releases in the Americas. The game is rated E10+by the ESRB. Official website: http://www.atlus.com/legendoflegacy

    Huh….. I wonder if this will be more Saga Frontier, or Unlimited Saga >____>

  • Kotaro

    Do those “gameplay adjustments” include an easy mode? Because I’ve heard that this game’s difficulty level is brutal. I don’t mind hard RPGs myself, but it’s very much a niche sort of thing, and I don’t see it being too successful here without some way to make it less so.
