Lufia: The Legend Returns | oprainfall

Natsume provided some exciting news today as they tweeted that Lufia: The Legend Returns will be available on the Nintendo 3DS eShop starting this Thursday, January 15 in North America. The game was released on the European eShop back in November.

While not as widely heralded as the first two Lufia games, The Legend Returns is a solid RPG that continues the story of the battle between Maxim’s descendents of hero Maxim and the evil Sinistrals.

Some tricky issues regarding trademarks may hinder the release of some other, more coveted Lufia titles from seeing a release on the Virtual Console or eShop, but this is a start, and it’s one fans of the series should enjoy.

Are you excited for this release? Let us know in the comments.
