Product Details:

Seven adventurers are about to embark on the quest of a lifetime as they explore the island of Avalon and unravel the mysteries of its dark past. The RPG is developed by a core group of legendary developers who came together to create this brand new story and world. Seven adventurers 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.

Features:

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Balanced for the West - Based on user feedback following the Japanese release, several gameplay adjustments were made to enhance the gameplay.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Grind is Real and Beautiful I was looking for some game to kill some free time and hadn't picked my 3DS up in quite a long time. The Legend of Legacy, which I so luckily stumbled on, offered me that and more. This game will give you hours upon hours of gameplay. Much more than the average RPG. However, these hours come at a cost of grinding. With little to no tutorial at the start of the game, you're left to your own devices to figure out how to traverse this seemingly easy but deeply complex game. The Legend of Legacy is not like traditional RPGs in the sense of the leveling system. Characters do not have an experience bar. Instead, there are three things each character levels up; Attack, Guard, and Support. You can think of these three things as stats. These stats are both for the general character and are also attached to ANY skill a character has. Throughout the game you're leveling up your characters' general stats and their skill stats (which keep in mind are not one in the same). Skill stats are leveled up individually resulting in a very tedious grind (example being leveling up attack or guard for skill A does not result for leveling up attack or guard for skill B). Another difference than the traditional RPG is the formations you create to use in battle. The party system (maximum of 3 characters in a party) uses different stances to give characters an advantage in battle. For example, some specific move in a 'healing' type stance can give my healing skills more health point regeneration. The combinations of individual stats, skill stats, and stances becomes very complex as you progress through the game. The storyline however leaves something to be desired as you're driven (storyline-wise) by a very bland female narrator reading off a paragraph of text every few hours with a few background images cycling behind the text. The NPCs aren't at all responsive and give you no hints at all on how to progress in the story. The quest maps are blank and you will have to traverse the quest maps to fill them in. Enemies will spot you if you get in their detection radius and will chase you forever unless you get out of view of them or put an object in their pathing. Minibosses will jump out at you and these mini-boss and boss battles are grueling and difficult.------------------------------------------------------------------------- Graphics: The graphics are kind of a mix of old school pixelated 3D characters in the 3DS's 3D screen. Did I mention 3D? The characters' faces rarely change expression. The world's maps have this weird thing where terrain such as trees, rocks, etc will pop up like some flip-up book when you come into view of it. At first, for me, this was a little disorienting but I got used to it pretty quickly. The terrain graphics aren't anything spectacular BUT they are very charming and add to the game's rpg feel. Character designs for the 7 heroes/heroines are appealing and charming as well. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- If you're looking for a game that will offer a challenge and many, many, many hours of grinding then this is the game for you. I'd recommend it to both casual and hardcore gamers. Where The Legend of Legacy falls a little flat on story line it makes up for in addicting gameplay and a fresh, complex battle and leveling system.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I thought This is not a bad game, but I will say that the instructions on how to play this game and what to do is VERY vague. The battle system is okay, I am disappointed that there is VERY limited options on gear and when you do wear it nothing changes. Weapons do a little but not clothing. It seems really difficult at times and if you are on a map you have not completed you just die. Start from a saved point. I have about 4 to 5 hours into it and I still can't beat a lot of enemies and I have no idea how they figure out what skills you are leveling up because there is no experience gauges. This is a good game but trust me when I say if you don't like hardcore games don't get this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Second to Bravely Default I'm a big fan of RPG's and it seems over the years, in pure conjecture, they're getting worse. This game however, revives the classical RPG we all love and expect. This game allows the player to pick from an array of players to act as your protagonist. This perspective is a slight change but gives you what feels like more control. Another great feature if the rendered backdrop; as you walk, the environment will gradually appear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful and Fantasy-ful PROS: The graphics, the beautiful music, the different characters, the story and the last appeal. CONS: None at all. A definite must have for rpg fans.
