The Legend of Legacy (3DS) Announcement - Screenshot 1

Atlus has announced that they will be bringing over a new 16-bit-style role-playing game for 3DS, The Legend of Legacy. With art from SaGa series illustrator Tomomi Kobayashi, music from SaGa and Final Fantasy XIII alumnus Masashi Hamauzu, and writing from Chrono Trigger scribe Masato Kato, The Legend of Legacy follows seven adventurers who set out to explore the origins behind the mysterious island of Avalon. They each have a different reason to be on the island, but things go awry once they begin to see specters of the former inhabitants. Combat will use a turn-based system focused around a three-member party and mechanics that eschew classes in favor of formations. Atlus will also be balancing the gameplay for the Western release. And to up replayability, each character has their own storyline and ending.
