Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven

Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven is launching in North America on June 2, XSEED has announced. The game will be available in stores as well as on the eShop for $39.99.

Marvelous also confirmed today that Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven is coming to Europe and Australia on June 4. Unlike North America, this will be a digital-only release. Pricing is set at £24.99 / €29.99 / $49.95AUD.

Check out a comprehensive overview of Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven, along with a fresh batch of screenshots.

Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven is a strategy RPG adventure from the famed producer of the acclaimed Rune Factory series. Main character “Luchs” is an unsuccessful innkeeper forced to excavate crystals to make his way in life. One day while digging, he discovers a mysterious fairy maiden encased in a crystal! On awakening, the fairy maiden starts Luchs on a fantastical adventure where he must battle monsters, discover and uncover the secrets of six more fairy maidens, manage his inn and much much more!

Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven features an innovative turn based battle system. Movement range is dictated by a circle of reach, and attacks will affect multiple enemies if they are within this circle.

Seven Heroines, Seven Stories – Each of the seven fairy maiden heroines who come to inhabit the inn have their own stories to tell, and building relationships with them will unlock new, specialised attacks to aid in combat when they join the battle party

Strategic Combat Makes Every Turn Count – “Bowl” over as many enemies with a single strike as possible, challenging players to line up melee, ranged and magical attacks so frontline enemies are knocked into others for maximum collateral damage

Craft Your Way to New Skills – In addition to unlocking new abilities, participating in Free Battles and registering for StreetPass can provide rare crafting items for use in creating new skills to help turn the tides of battle

Adjustable Difficulty Levels and More – Players can toggle among Easy, Normal and Hard difficulties, use the Fast Forward feature to speed up combat as desired, or relive fond memories via in-game movie and art galleries

XSEED released a new set of screenshots from Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven. You can find them below.

All of today’s images come from a new localization blog, which is posted on XSEED’s Tumblr. The company teased at the end of the write-up: “we’re hoping to announce a release date along with a nice surprise for you soon.”

XSEED Games announced Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven for North America last week. No such confirmation is out there for Europe and Australia yet, but you can rest easy knowing that the game will be available in these regions as well. Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven has been rated in Australia, meaning it’s just a matter of time before an official announcement is made. Marvelous will be publishing directly – much like Senran Kagura Burst.


XSEED finally confirmed today that Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven is heading to North America. The 3DS game will arrive this spring.

For an overview and trailer, continue on below.

Sometimes one’s path is chosen by fate. Luchs is one such soul, whose peaceful innkeeping days were numbered once he discovered a bracelet known as “Lachryma.” Suddenly accosted by strange fiends, he’s saved by a mysterious faerie encased in crystal whose memories are spotty at best. Luchs decides to help her recover these memories and, in doing so, encounters numerous other faeries just like her, each wielding unique powers and remembering a little more about their storied pasts as the entourage grows.

Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven boasts a unique strategic battle system which encourages players to aim their attacks just right in order to “bowl” over as many enemies as possible with a single strike. Players can also turn the tide of battle by crafting new skills with unique items obtainable through StreetPass registration and participation in Free Battles. With adjustable difficulty levels during gameplay and a fast-forward feature to help speed through cutscenes for battle-hungry players, the customizable experience on offer here promises to leave lasting memories, complemented by in-game movie and art galleries that allow players to review key dramatic moments at will.

This title will launch in the spring, and has been rated “T” for Teen by the ESRB. More information will be shared in the coming weeks.


All signs have pointed to XSEED’s localization of Forbidden Magna, but now we have yet another clue (essentially a confirmation) hinting at an upcoming announcement. The ESRB has rated XSEED’s “Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven” for 3DS.

Here’s the full rating description:

This is a role-playing game in which players help an innkeeper assist a maiden to regain her memories. From a 3/4 over-head perspective, players explore landscapes, interact with characters, and battle fantasy creatures (e.g., dinosaur, gargoyles, robots). Players use swords, guns, and magic spells to defeat enemy creatures in turn-based combat. Battles are accompanied by mild explosions and impact sounds. One sequence depicts a character impaled by a sword. The game contains some suggestive material: a bath house sequence depicting female characters with exposed buttocks and/or partially obscured breasts; a female character scrubbing another character’s breasts; dialogue pertaining to breast size (e.g., “You really lucked out when filling out, huh” and “I wished mine were that big.”). The word “a*s” can be heard in the game.

There’s no doubt about it: that’s Forbidden Magna. Expect an official announcement in the near future!
