Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology

Atlus has shared some new information about Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology. The following was translated by Gematsu.

First up, some info on the staff working on the game. The director is Mitsuru Hirata, who was the director of the original Radiant Historia game, the chief director of Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE and has also worked on several Shin Megami Tensei titles such as Shin Megami Tensei IV and SMT: Strange Journey.

The music is being done by the legendary Yoko Shimomura, who has composed dozens of excellent game soundtracks, including series like Kingdom Hearts, Mario & Luigi, Xenoblade Chronicles and the original Radiant Historia. She composed five new tracks for the 3DS version.

Responsible for the new characters designs is Masaki Hirooka, who previously worked on Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia, Suikoden Tierkreis and Kid Icarus: Uprising. Hirooka also drew several new event scenes.

The new animated opening movie is being produced by A-1 Pictures, a prestigious animation studio responsible for works such as Fairy Tail, Erased, Your Lie in April and the recent Ace Attorney anime.

The story remains largely the same as in the original game, with the main character Stocke being caught up in a war between the countries Granorg and Alistel while he discovers his ability to travel between alternate histories.

A new character called Nemesia appears in the 3DS version. She is a historian that doesn’t belong to either of the two main timelines, but rather the new “Sub-History” timeline. She’s looking for a material known as “Artifact”.

Most of the original’s gameplay mechanics stay the same in this remake, such as the ability to travel between certain points in the alternate histories, the ability to perform various actions in the overworld and the game’s unique grid-based combat system.

Head past the break for some more info on what has changed in the remake as well as tons of new screenshots and art.

On 3DS, this new version has enhanced graphics, beautiful visuals inserted for event scenes, and the ability to change the difficulty level. A-1 Pictures produced the opening animation. Players can also choose from two modes when they first begin:

– Perfect Mode: newly added Sub-History in addition to the Standard History and Alternate History of the original title right from the beginning of the game
– Append Mode: start with Standard History and Alternate History, and after clearing those, you can move on to the new Sub-History. Difficulty level can also be changed.
