NIS America and FuRyu Corporation have announced that The Legend of Legacy HD Remastered is coming to Nintendo Switch early next year.
Discovered ten years ago, the island of Avalon is shrouded in mystery. It is said the continent was forged by the gods and elementals and is home to many fabled treasures with immense powers. Numerous brave souls have attempted to venture and investigate the lands of Avalon. Will you be next?
Follow the stories of seven upcoming heroes as they descend upon the untrodden lands to fulfil their unique desires. Each of them has their own individual skills and stories to tell. Manage battle formations and instruct specific combat roles to develop the upper hand in battle and seize victory, and utilize the ancient power of the elementals by forging contracts mid-battle to call down powerful skills. Take part in an epic journey unlike any other!
We enjoyed our time with The Legend of Legacy back on Nintendo 3DS but felt that it fell short of its potential, concluding in our review: “It is a lack of cohesion that sees The Legend of Legacy slightly miss its mark, despite some clear strengths within its otherwise carefully considered design. There is still much to commend, but it isn’t enough to be remembered as a legend in its own right.”
The publisher has outlined the game’s key features, which include:
Legendary Storytelling: Illustrator Tomomi Kobayashi, renowned composer Masashi Hamauzu, writer Masato Kato, game designer Kyoji Koizumi, and Masataka Matsuura all come together to create a one-of-a-kind adventure!
Seven Heroic Journeys: Each character in The Legend of Legacy HD Remastered has their own motivation for exploring Avalon, as well as their own individual conclusion at the story’s resolution. Play through as each character to see how their tales unfold!
Combat Innovation: Battle enthusiasts can discover a new level of challenge during combat by using formations and stances to assign flexible combat roles instead of fixed classes!
The Legend of Legacy HD Remastered will be released at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in early 2024.
