While it seems that European gamers will have to wait until early 2016 to pick up The Legend of Legacy, Atlus USA has announced that the title will be released in North America on October 13th and that at launch there will be a number of bonuses included with the game.
The 3DS title will be priced at $39.99 and all launch copies will include a copy of the game, a soundtrack CD featuring 10 tracks from Masashi Hamauzu, and a premium 40 page hardcover art book featuring character artwork, sketches, background art, and monster pages accompanied by commentary from the game’s character artist Tomomi Kobayashi, all contained in a collector’s box.
For those who want to know a bit more about what The Legend of Legacy has to offer, Atlus USA has released some new story details as well as a feature list that you can check out below:
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.
- 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!
