Atlus always seem to impress us with their stunning box sets. Atlus, today announced a North American release for Radiant Historia, a new internally-developed time-travel RPG for Nintendo DS.Â Channeling the heart and soul of fan favorite 16-bit RPG classics, Radiant Historia combines a unique position-based battle system, intricate hand-drawn details, and one of the best soundtracks in recent memory as it takes gamers on a steampunk adventure back and forth through time. Check out that stunning beautiful premium box set which consists of the Radiant Historia DS game along with a special FREE music CD featuring unique piano arrangements from composer Yoko Shimomura.
“We’ve seen a future without a North American localization of Radiant Historia,” warned a stern Aram Jabbari, Manager of PR and Sales.Â “That future was depressing and noticeably lacking in the ‘epic handheld RPG’ category. Knowing what that tomorrow would be like, we’re excited to release Radiant Historia for Nintendo DS in February 2011.
It’s the kind of gaming experience that is really a time machine unto itself, transporting gamers back to the 16-bit era, the golden age of RPGs.
Prepare to jump forward and back through time, meeting a variety of memorable characters and taking in some of the most polished, lovingly hand-drawn visuals ever to grace a handheld entry in the genre.
A gaming future without all that?Â Not pretty,” he concluded, grimacing. Check out this epic trailer.
Radiant Historia is currently scheduled to release on February 22, 2011 for Nintendo DS in North America thus far.
