Following yesterday’s reveal in Famitsu magazine, Atlus has sent a press release to share plenty of details about Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology, along with some screenshots and artwork. Many of the details are from the Famitsu article, but there are some new info as well. Those new details were translated by Gematsu.
Let’s start with the music. This Nintendo 3DS remake will feature some original tracks: 5, to be precise. Naturally, those were composed by Yoko Shimomura, who already composed the music for the original version. She also composed the music for “Rakka Ryuusui”, the opening theme (sung by Haruka Shimotsuki).
Radiant Historia (Perfect Chronology) takes place on Vainqueur, a large continent that has been suffering from desertification. What’s more, the continent was further ravaged by the war between the Kingdom of Granorg in the west, and Alistel (a country in the east), over the remaining green lands.
In the game, you get to play as Stocke, a young man who can travel through time using a book called White Chronicle. He gets to travel between several parallel worlds, such as Standard History and Alternate History, but also the new Sub-History (only found in this Nintendo 3DS remake). As you can imagine, the decision you end up making will have a singnificant impact on the story.
Atlus shares an example: at the first crossroad, you have to chose between two main paths:
- you can chose to continue as a spy for the Special Intelligence agents (which puts you in the Standard History);
- you can chose to join the army and fight alongside your close friends (which puts you in the Alternate History).
Thanks to Time Seals, you can always go back to any crossroad, in order to try a different path for example. Historia is the name of the world between time, and two guides can be found there to show you the way:
- Lippti (voiced by Maaya Uchida)
- Teo (Miyu Tomita)
Gameplay-wise, there’s various actions you can perform on the field: destroying obstacles, moving heavy objects, and more. You will even get to sneak into enemy territory, which shows that this game isn’t just about battles.
Speaking of battles, Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology uses the same command-based battle system. It does offer a lot of depth, letting players gather enemies in one place to kill them all in one attack, switch turn orders so as to put up combos with the various party members, and more. This Nintendo 3DS remake also features some new elements, to be detailed at a later date.
Players will be able to chose between three difficulty level (as revealed on Sunday):
- Friendly (you can defeat enemies on the field using a Hyper Smash attack, which still gives you XP and money)
