The Legend of Legacy officialisé en Amérique

Repéré au début du mois de mai pour une localisation anglaise, The Legend of Legacy est désormais officiellement sur les plannings d'Atlus USA.

Le RPG de Furyu va donc sortir dès la fin d'année sur 3DS en Amérique à 39.99$ en boite ou digital. Il est paru à l'origine le 22 janvier 2015 sur l'Archipel. Il sera par ailleurs présent à l'E3 dès la semaine prochaine.

Derrière Legend of Legacy, on retrouve une bonne partie du staff des SaGa de Square Enix. Le jeu semble être une sorte de successeur spirituel à cette série. L'aventure suit les personnages Liber, Meurs, Bianca, Garnet, Eloise, Owen et Filmia sur l'île d'Avalon. Chacun d'entre eux aura une bonne raison d'explorer cet endroit et le joueur pourra ainsi découvrir plusieurs perspectives. Atlus USA a au passage amélioré le gameplay de ce RPG suite au feedback des joueurs après sa sortie japonaise.

"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.

In addition to exploring the island of Avalon, Combat will offer plenty of challenges in The Legend of Legacy. Combat is turn-based, but players will have the option to create their own formations tailored to their party of three, meaning each party member can be put into a different combat role (defending, attacking, supporting, etc.) at any given time. Formations can be saved and changed between turns as well, giving players plenty of options to maximize their strategies.

Other 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.

Balanced 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!"
