News: The Legend of Legacy US Release

Explore the Mysterious Island of Avalon in the Spiritual Successor to a Classic JRPG Series SaGa Coming to the Nintendo 3DS this Winter: The Legend of Legacy!

Seven adventurers are about to embark on the quest of a lifetime as they explore the island of Avalon and unravel the mysteries of its dark past in The Legend of Legacy, developed by FuRyu and published in North America by Atlus. The game has been developed by a core group of legendary developers (Chrono Cross, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy XIII, and more) who came together to create this brand new IP.

In The Legend of Legacy, the seven adventurers - Liber, Meurs, Owen, Bianca, Garnet, Eloise and 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.

Other 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 Team - Illustrator Tomomi Kobayashi (SaGaseries), 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.

Balanced for the West - Based on user feedback following the Japanese release, several gameplay adjustments were made to enhance the gameplay.

The game will be released in retail stores and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS for $39.99/CA$49.99 sometime in Q4 this year. As of yet there is no word on a European release.
